Default Looking for Craftsman router locking lever spring

I have a Craftsman router model # 315.17380, oldie but goodie. I need the Locking Lever Spring, p/n # 1-623797-01> which Sears has obsoleted ( see attachment #38 diagram)

Any help sourcing one will be appreciated or if you have one for sale even better.

Hello, and welcome to our little corner of the net.

I would suggest you keep an eye on Ebay, Craigslist, or Kijiji for one that someone is parting with.

Or, unless this one has great sentimental value, purchase a new one. Sears has a good 2 base combo unit on sale quite regularly for about $110.

Put yours up for sale... someone might need parts and then you can use what you got to offset the price of a new one.


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

My locking lever spring broke today. I figured out that I could remove the lever completely and not miss it. The chuck can be loosened by using the thin flat 7/8" open end arbor wrench that comes with Craftsman table saws and radial arm saws. Be sure to shake the broken spring parts out of the router motor before using it.

I have this same router, case, manuals, etc. for sale for $45 + shipping from Murrieta, CA -- see my 8/21/13 post in the Classifieds section of this forum entitled "Vintage Craftsman router and accessories". The router is complete and in working condition. I also have some accessories that fit this router for sale and they are described in the same post.
