Hello and welcome, Rob
Thanks for sharing that. I have had Craftsman routers since 1965,66. Have had good tools, Sorry for the trouble. I don't know for sure, but it would seem to me that buying another tool, should not be to bad, If you get a replacement, you don't have a
guarantee unless you pay again. I have also purchased some rebuilt tools. I found out from the rebuild co, that normally, they are covered for a full year at no cost. I bought a Roto-zip from a good supplier when it was still sold by the inventor, that after the third breakdown, which really made me drought the maker, I thought that they didn't build a decent product. They told me that if they have a bad supplier for a part on the unite, that fails a lot, the re builders will find a better supplier. I took a rebuilt, and i have had No problems with that at all. The Thing i am trying to say, A rebuilt will be tore down and a problematic part replaced, It will not have a 90 day warranter, but a 1 year. and after that time, if anything fails, they would replace. I am not telling you to do this at all. I would check out all possibilities. I believe that Rigid looks pretty good, and i can tell you that i haven't heard a lot of negative talk about them, Porter Cable i think can do a good job, and i would look at them again up close, and make your decision.
