Modern Fixed based Routers copy this CARTER patent design.
(That’s why Hitachi fixed based router has a “C” in their model numbers for Carter patent and their Plunge based Router has a “E” in their model numbers for ELU patent.)
After you have identified all the parts, you just use it as you would any modern day FIXED BASE ROUTER which are but copycats of your Stanley-Carter router.
So any fixed base router manual can be a guide.
Just buy some ¼” shank router bits and rout some wood.
There is a manual available on ebay http://vi.vipr.ebaydesc.com/ws/eBayI...1&secureDesc=0
