Default Ryobi RE600 quit on me

I have a Ryobi Re600 3 1/2hp Plunge router that started to act up on me, by slowly turning over when the switch is turned on. The second time it made a stalling noise like it wanted to go but barely making 20 rpms.
Now it won't even make a sound.

Does anyone know of a repair place that works on Ryobi Routers or a place to send it in for repairs (last resort) I'm in Oregun near Washington state. The yellow pages here suk.


Never mind, just had to go a little more on the search paramaters.

But while I'm still editing this, I need a router to use in my table setup for routing acrylic panels from 1/4 to 3/4 thick, gotta have power and longevity mainly use fin a table setup so weight is no problem, if I can get the Ryboi fixed I'll need another one for spare/backup or main use,and not cost an arm and a leg, throw some idea at me

Hi Charles,

I know HarrySin wouldn't be fond of me for saying this but... Makita 3612C, the newer Tritons. But, you have many different router "makes" to choose from.

Hi Charles - about the least expensive 3+ routers I know of are the Hitachi M12's and Freud 2000/2200's. Running about $150 reconditioned. May score something on eBay though. Lately been seeing some DeWalt 625's on there. Most come in pretty cheap but seldom leave that way.
Good Luck

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.
