Perfect accessory
Although I have not used it yet, but will this week, it was perfect timing when the Rockler catalog arrived. I had been looking for this size router stabilizer that would take a template collar.

Makes the router much more stable
I had to drill my own mounting holes as my Skil Router base did not match up, but easy to do. Once attached, it made routering mortises easy as it is steady and guide works well.

I have a Porter Cable 75361 router with a 695870 router plate. I know many of the PC routers can use the same plate so can my router use #31186 as well as your other router plates?
MARK S on Jan 27, 2016
Will this guide work with a Porter Cable 690 series motor?thanks
Golden Dragon on Nov 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this will work with the 690
Will this work with the Bosch 1617 plunge base? I know some other plates will fit the fixed base but not the plunge base.
EricB on Apr 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'll answer my own question for any other curious people. It will not fit and it would be difficult to modify since the pre-drilled screw holes will get in the way of drilling new holes. Used this as an excuse to order a new porter cable router(don't tell my wife).
What is a perforated base?
Holly L on Aug 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: "Perforation" (i.e., holes) refers to two separate applications. Firstly there are different "sets" of holes aligned such that the base can be mounted in different ways or on various bases. Holes ("perforations" may also be drilled in such a way to allow sawdust/debris to flow away from the work area. Hope this helps.
Will this base work with a Triton JOF001US 9 Amp Plunge Router?

Will it fit a Mikita 360 1B?
Philip M on Aug 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'M USING THIS ON A DEWALT 611.. I believe there is a pattern drawing showing which router base the unit will attach to... Pull down the menu in the window and hopefully it'll show you what router it is compatible to.

John M on Aug 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This base includes the standard lipped opening for a Porter Cable router bushing.
Will this universal router base work with any of the palm routers now available, Bosch, makita etc?
Michael K on Jul 28, 2018
