Default Manual for 315.17461

I have yet to find a manual for this specific model of router. I bought it at a yard sale 20 years ago and would love to get it going! Can you help?

Sears had a number of models that were very close to the same router. All with 315. at the beginning of the model number were made by Ryobi. With very minor exceptions any group that were similar would have virtually identical manuals. Many of us here have owned Sears routers and if we saw a picture and you asked a specific question we would probably be able to answer it for you.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I have never used a router before. I have a book on using routers, but I really want to understand the parts of this craftsman that I own

Hi, Cindy; welcome!
Any info here or elsewhere regarding using a router safely, read it and re-read it until it's second nature. Routers aren't very forgiving when it comes to flesh and bone, not to mention ruining whatever you're working on.
If you can find a nightschool class, or weekend workshop, you'll get a lot out of it.
See Stick's .pdfs above!

Thanks. Well, I have taught myself how to use an angle grinder and I’m comfortable with it so I figure a router can’t be much worse. I don’t live anywhere near a class, so I’m on my own. I do believe in safety and will not try anything that I’m not comfortable with. This group will be a great resource I’m sure

There's some nice tutorials here at the forum. Harry Sinclair has done a bunch...

I can never find what I'm looking for in the archive, but if you contact Harry I'm sure he'll give you links to them

Cindy the manual for the router will provide very little help in regard to learning to use it. Sticks pd files will and Harry's Tutorials if we can find where we stashed them, and there are some very good videos on you tube. Marc Sommerfeld has some really good ones that are well done. They may seem over your head but if you watch his technique you'll be able to get something out of it and learn a few good tricks at the same time. And we are here to help when needed.
