Default DeWalt 618 Manual

The manual for the DeWalt DW616/618 combination router is an abomination.
I have reconstituted it and printed it to a pdf format if anyone is interested.

This is really great. Can't thank you enough. It's absolutely amazing that Dewalt won't do this from the start.

Thank you so much for making the manual available to those of us who do not have one. I have just purchased a used Dewalt DW616 router w/plunge base and had no idea how to set it up. I have never had or used a router before, but needed one to install some Soss #218 hinges. We will see how that works out.

Hi Guys, just a quick note. A while back I questioned why my DW618 suddenly started running at high speed during an operation and would not reduce speed. I finally took it apart and found it was the magnetic ring that had broken, I purchase a new ring for $3.19 and pulled the bearing, replaced the ring and bearing and it works great. Dewalt did not offer any suggestions when I first called, only to say it would cost $98.00 to fix. After I fixed it, I called them back, and told them what I had done, and was told that would fix it, and the reason they would have charge so mush was that their hourly rate is $75.00. Just thought this may help others as during the session previously, it was apparent others had a similar problem. Hope this helps someone.

Thanks to Larryc for revising the DW616/618 manual. I hope he doesn't mind but I found the images a little hard to read so I cut and pasted pictures from the actual manual into Larryc's much better version and I believe the images are now easier to read. Again, thanks Larry and hope you don't mind my changes. here is the revised revised manual. Roger
