Hi all -
Great site, hope someone out there has some ideas…
My dad recently gave me an older Craftsman Router Table (Model # 925479). It’s a small bench top model with a fixed router opening and 3 holes drilled in the aluminum base (no way to change where the holes are). I also have a Porter Cable (# 6902) w/ 1001 Router Base. Obviously the two don’t line up because I’m here. :)
My thought was to use this adapter: http://www.woodcraft.com/family.aspx?FamilyID=5020
I’d like to be able to screw through the table into the adapter which is also attached to the router. I know this will drop the router down further and I might lose depth, but I could also get a collar extension if it’s too far yes? The tricky part will be making sure it’s centered in the hole on the table.
I can post pics if it will help? My other thought was cut a 6” round piece of luan mahogany and make my own “adapter”, but I’m afraid the screws coming through the top of the table will hit the router base, I was thinking of luan because it’s relatively thin.
Any thoughts, help, suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much in advance.
