Routers, such as those made by Bosch, are able to be used freehand or attached to a router table. The benefit of attaching a router to a table is that the tool will remain stationary, while cutting the grooves or details into a piece of wood. In order to attach a Bosch router to a router table, you first need to determine how the tool attaches to the table.

  1. 1

    Find and remove the screws that are used to secure the plastic subbase to the bottom of the router with the Phillips screwdriver. Take off the plastic subbase and set it aside.

  2. 2

    Place the mounting plate for the router table over the bottom of the router and align the mounting holes.

  3. 3

    Insert the screws into the mounting holes and tighten them with the Philips screwdriver. This will secure the mounting plate to the router.

  4. 4

    Locate the levelling screws on the router table. Insert the mounting plate, router first, into the opening in the router table. The mounting plate should rest on the levelling screws. Be careful not to trap the power cord in the table.

  5. 5

    Insert screws into the holes at each corner of the mounting plate and tighten, by hand, a locking nut on the bottom of each screw. Tighten the screws with the Phillips screwdriver.

  6. 6

    Plug the power cord into an electrical socket to complete the project.

Tips and warnings

  • Adjust the level of the router by loosening the locking screws with an Allen wrench.
  • The mounting plate will need to be removed from the router table before removing the router from the mounting plate.
  • Unplug the router from the electrical socket before mounting it to the router table.
