I built this router table to fit my craftsman router, without having to buy any adapter plates. It is very simple, and works like any other router table. The switch on the side allows you to turn the router on and off without having to reach underneath, and also keeps it accessible in case of an accident. I used some spare nuts glued into one of the legs to hold on the plate and the original screws (which keeps them from getting lost). Installing the router onto the table takes less than a minute, and makes it much easier to use rather than holding it upside down.
