Default 1st post. Skil 1810 “pop-up”

Just bought the router, and have read the manual, even did a little inlaying. My question
is what does the “pop up” feature mean? The depth knob is shown popped way up in
the manuals diagram, but mine does nothing but rotate. My unit is the fixed base type.
Secondly, I spent hours making a fitting for the dust collection port, and even when
connected to a shop vac I don’t see a reduction the sawdust. Any suggestions?

Hey, Dale; welcome!
Can you take some pictures? You can load them directly from your own hard drive, but not the 'net, until you reach 10 comments...it's an anti-spam thing.
Just put the pics on your desktop, them drag them into the field below, "DRAG AND DROP FILE UPLOAD".
Dontcha just love manuals that assume you know what they're talking about?

Do as Dan said or used the advanced posting option, manage attachments, and browse files. As long as it is in your hard drive it will work. It will also tell you what formats are compatible.

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.

Could it be the quick release button, being called a "pop-up". On my Rigid router, as with most i'm sure, have a quick release button. So that if you are moving your router up or down a good bit, you don't have to keep spinning the little knob. Push the little spring loaded quick release, move the router up or down the fixed base, and then use the knob for fine tuning. Don't know, just a thought!!

I had to email the pictures to myself, then switch over to a pc to do this. There is a circlip right under the
knob, so the knob just can't raise up, or pop-up. I thought maybe the feature was for the plunge model, but
this is the fixed-base diagram. Melted into the top is a little "recon", and right next to that is a Skil factory
reconditioned sticker, the machine was only $40, including shipping. No wrench. It is incredibly clean.
You can see my dorky vacuum attachment.
I will fuss with it and learn what is going on, just thought an owner might be lurking around.
a good bit.......nice pun!!!

Does it only engage the adjusting mechanism in the up position? The vac attachment is too high to be effective. It needs to be in the space between the base and the motor.
