I put the base with the motor in on the side with the hook & loop strap.
I lower the motor as much as possible without having the collet protrude below the base then I wrap the hook & loop strap around the top of the motor for stability.
The other base can just sit in the spot next to it.

If you ever need to order collets, the parts section does not list which collet is which, and neither does Sears.com. I got the information to order a 1/4" collet for another router. Item #99 Collet Assy, p/n 2823125000 is the 1/4" collet.

Ergo item #38 would be the 1/2" collet.

Just thought you may want to note that in your manual.

Can anyone tell me what size the screws are that hold the base plate on?

I just got one as a gift, went to mount it on my table and stripped all the screws holding the base plate on. I have heard others had trouble with them, now I need to replace them and want to make sure I get the right size. Thanks!

Jewstin11, it is a metric screw.. the exact size I dont recall but that will help at the hardware store.... take the base with you. The same size screw fits both the fixed and plunge base so you may be able to take one out and take it with you to find its match. Good luck.. it was aggravating finding the right size-thread-length-bevel.

Will this router motor fit the 3 1/2" Jessem lift ? That's the $189 one from Amazon.http://www.amazon.com/JessEm-Rout-R-...productDetails

Default Video's on the 27683?

Northwest of Nashville a bit. I have done some searching on the net, and couldn't really find that many video's on this particular router that I just got. I wanted a combo, and one of the things that attracted me was the led's (lights). I am a revived woodworker, limited due to disabilities from the military. So basically just trying to get back into making signs for fun. I noticed their isn't a whole lot of routers out there that have lights.
Anyone that have any links, would appreciate if you would share them :-) Michael
