I’m looking for a couple of measurements from the base.
I want check if I could retro fit the base on to my Dewalt router as Dewalt make the t10,t11 routers for Trend I hope it will, and hopefully save me from getting another router.
So I need
Distance between the sliders,
Diameter of the slider
Distance centre to centre of the height adjustment screw and the closest slider.

I do have a T11, but it's in my table, and can't easily access for measuring. I am 99.9% certain the DW625 and the T11 are the same machine apart from the extra below-table adjustments that can be made on the T11

Yep its design from the 80s by Elu but mine is DW626 and has a different base to the 625. Not sure if they both share the same dimensions.

I have a trend pro router table, pre drilled for a T11. I can measure later this evening if you like?

Edit, never mind - I see you need different measurements, not holes.

Hi. Have a look at a couple of pictures online - the 626 is completely different design - the depth stop arrangement is completely different. They won't be interchangeable.

Hi the depth stop and height adjuster is on different side on the 626. I will be putting this into my router table so don’t need depth stop so will be doing away with that.
Im looking to have a better way to than my home made screw arrangement to adjust the height of the router from above.

Tlong screw as seen in pic below looks to be in the same position as the T11

I don't know if they are interchangeable with Dewalt. What I can tell you, as I had it confirmed by Trend technical, is that the T10 and T11 bases are not interchangeable, ie you can't fit a t11 base to a t10 router.

Not sure what is wrong with your base but you can buy new bases for a t11 or t10. They are fairly straight forward to exchange and a lot cheaper than a new one.

There’s nothing wrong with the base on my router I would like the functionality of the trend base on my Dewalt router and to use a Incra magnalock router plate.
