Default Craftsman router parts

I'm looking for a place to purchase a locking lever for my Craftsman router. The router is about 30 years old but only used several times. The router model number is 315.17380 and the locking lever part, I believe, is # 2-623796-02.

Hi, welcome to the forum
I see Sears no longer carries that part. There should be a way of figuring out who the real mfg was off the model number prefix, 315. They was a posting about that awhile back but several brain cells must have gone AWOL and took that tidbit with them.
There really isn't much to the thing, just a piece of flat steel with a pivot hole in one end and a dog about the middle to engage the sipindle shaft. If you know anyone in any type of machine shop or mechanic business could maybe cobble something up for you.
Good Luck.

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

Good Luck.
Someone mentioned 315 may mean router was made by Ryobi. Has anyone found a replacement part by Ryobi? My metal skills have been in silver and I don't think I want to use silver to make this part.

If you find one, get two. . .I have needed one for a long time now. I am trying to make something that will work as well.
