    Need a router base

    Hi people. I have not been active much because of health. Hoping it gets better, or, ends soon.

    Anyway, to the subject of this post. I am in need of a regular base for an old 1984 I believe, Bosch model 1905 router. If any of you good people happen to have the base in question, from a bad router, and want to part with it, I could use it.

    I will try to keep track of replies as often as I can.

    Thank you so much, in advance. You all are a wonderful and very helpful group.

    Wish me luck.

    Aloha, Tony

    On page 245 of the current Lee Valley catalog, is a replacement base plate, for $23.50 Canadian. It will fit most routers, and if it doesn't fit yours you can carefully drill screw holes where you need them.

    I think he is wanting the whole base not just the plate.
    Not sure but that is what I thought when I read it.

    Well, I'm sure he can correct me if you are right.

    Thanks, Rob. And yes Roger, Garry is right, I need the whole base, not the plate. I make my own plates out of plexi or phenolic. Thanks guys.

    No need to worry over this, Larry. I was just trying to get a base for a real good running motor I have. No real project going on. Thanks so much Larry. Keep in touch.

    Aloha, Tony
