Can anyone tell me how to seperate the base and motor on this thing? I inherited it from my father who seldom, if ever used it. He was more interested in metal. Naturally, no owners manual and it is discontinued on the Sears site (imagine that ). I have also Googled and Binged with no luck.
I'm kinda resurrecting this thing to use as a second router for dovetails and such. Got a Milescraft turnlock base and bushing kit in this morning and went to work on it. Went to seperate the motor and base to better clean it up when I hit a stop sign. Don't feel I really need the whole manual as most of the operation is pretty intuitive, maybe a couple of adjustments I don't know about. Depth adjustment is pretty sloppy but I think that's gonna happen because of the design. I think some adjustment on the clamp bar may be in order though.
I'm not 100% sure about this but, I believe, remove the screw right above that center knob. The motor should either slip or turn out of the base. However, if all you're doing is cleaning it up, do as Bj suggested, just blow it out.
