Now would be a good time to update your router with a speed control device, just by pass the switch and just use the switch on the speed control box for a off and on switch and a way to control the speed , so you don't burn up your router bits..
Router Speed Control
That would be ok if it is only used for table routing, but seems like a cumbersome answer for freehand routing.
A quick search on Ebay, shows lots of "Craftsman router"s, that look like they have similar switches. Some with model numbers, some without. There is even a manual listed that has multiple model numbers for parts checking.
Do you know how the switch connects? Another option may be a simple toggle switch.
I am new to this so please bear with me.
I have an older Craftsman router (model 315.175040). I believe the switch is bad. Sears tells me it is no longer available. I would think a switch from a newer model should work. If so, I need a part number.
