Default Hello Router Folks!

Hi People. My name is John. I bought a Craftsman Model # 315.17390 Router many years ago. I have actually never used this router that I can recall. However, I am not in the midst of a whole series of construction projects where I could really use the router. However, I seem to have lost my Owner's manual and am concerned about using this router without much of a clue as to what I am doing. I think I still have all the parts, including wrenches, router bits, router table, etc. I haven't been able to find a manual. I know someone on this site was also looking for a manual for the same model at some point. Has anyone found one, or do you know how I might get one?
Thanks. This sounds like an interesting group. I am approaching retirement and have undertaken finishing the secong floor of my Cape Cod. Next project will be finishing a 14' x22' sun porch, mostly in knotty pine and some stonework.
Getting comfortable with my router would probably be a real plus with the work ahead.

Hi John. Welcome to our little corner of the 'net.

Check here: Craftsman manuals Your's isn't listed here, but perhaps one will be close enough to provide you with sufficient information. If not, then feel free to post any questions you have.


Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.
