Do these parts go to my PC router, and if so, what are they for?

I purchased a used Porter Cable 693 fixed & plunge base router combo recently. In the box (no manual), I found these 2 elongated screws, with a red “2” printed on the top of them. Do they go with the plunge base somewhere? I looked at the parts diagram on the Delta/PC website for this router but don’t see these on there, or at least don’t recognize them in the line drawing. Any ideas what they are for if they even go with this router?

Just a guess … they might screw into the side of the router base in order to attach an adjustable edge guide.

I have that same combo kit and those parts didn’t come with mine.

I think Peter is correct.

Those are the part of the porter cable edge guide. I have one on a router right now. They screw into holes on the edge guide.

Excellent – do you have a picture of how the edge guide looks/goes together?

Thanks DaveR for taking the time to post the link. There are 2 edge guides listed, so I wasn’t sure which one these went to. I didn’t receive the guide in the purchase.

Each time I visited Delta’s website I received an “Unexpected error” message when I tried to download the parts diagram. Their website is flakey, at best. Thought a quick camera snap would help. No worries.
