Default Ryobi T hand for table height adjustment ?

I have a Ryobi Router that I got about 1 1/2 to 2 years ago and I put it on a table that I made but I can not find a place to get the the T handle for the height adjustment . I went to the Home Depo where I got it and asked where can I get it . One man looked at me like I was talking a different language and said I can not help you and another told me to go back to the store that I got it from and ask them . We where standing right in front of the routers and I explained that I got it from there in the first place when I was trying to tell him what I was looking for . Any help would be greatly appreciated .

Thanks

Mike

Do you have a model number for the router? Or a link to a manual so we can see what the part you are looking for looks like?

Looks like something you could make yourself, epoxy the right size socket onto a T handle. You may have to drill a slightly larger hole in the base. Failing that you could try Ryobi customer assistance:

Perhaps they can get you a replacement.

I have gotten a hold of customer service and they said I got every thing and they do not list that part but You gave me a good idea with drilling it out . I do not like modding it but it should be ok . Thanks Deb .

Hi Mike

Sorry,, many of the other T handles will fit your router I'm sure, I did post one but I will need to did it up, it was from Amazon at about 8.oo bucks if I recall..like you said it was the nut driver type and about 10" long..

If I can find that post I will post it..

May just try an auto parts store.
I just took a look at the operator manual you posted. They don't have such a wrench listed as part of the package.

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