I'm glad I found some of these posts regarding the Router QD680R.
Does anyone know of a "universal" router table that will fit this router? I've search and so far nothing!
no fits : Sears Caraftsman (all), Ryobi (all), Dewalt ( 2), Bosch (2 )
Someone please help! I do not want to buy another 1/2" chuck router AND a table
Adapting any particular router to a table that is not pre-drilled for it is usually just a matter of carefully drilling three holes (sometimes four). That is all assuming the router table has the physical room to receive the router. You simply remove the router base and use it as a template for properly placing the holes.
I would encourage you to use one of the tables which use removeable metal plates which bolt to the router. It makes things a lot easier than fastening to a solid top. (I like metal plates. Most plastic ones of varying materials are disappointiing.)
There may be another problem, however. As I understand, the Handyman plunge router requires you to squeeze the switch trigger to turn it on and off. This can be overcome by using Zip-Ties (or similar) to hold the switch in the ON position. You always should have an external switch that is easy to turn off ahead of the router anyway. Most router tables include a switch ahead of a place to plug in the router. Some plug locations are not very convenient for un-plugging when changing a bit. (My router table was this way. I rewired it to have an outside receptacle.)
