I recently bought the Craftsman 3.5hp industrial plunge router from a pawn shop and made a table and vacuum system for it. When it was all done, the router motor decided to stop working. I took into Sears and a week later (yesterday) they called and said they can't fix it because they no longer make the part. They didn't tell me what part, but I'm assuming it has to do with the motor coil, wiring, whatever...
Does anyone know how i can get around this problem without having to get a different router?
No offense to sears but, this is their major downfall. If you have a local tool repair shop, take it to them. They'll more than likely fix it and for far less than what sears would charge you.
