Question Craftsman router question

Morning guys..........I'm looking at a new in the box Craftsman plunge router (26835 or 315.268350). It's about 5 yrs old; asking $150. I know it was their big power Industrial router at that time, 15A, soft start, variable speed, but I know little else about it. It has a 1/2" collet w/a 1/4" adaptor.
Anybody have one, or are familiar with this model? Am wondering about problems or troublesome features. Anybody know who made this one? Bosch maybe? Thanks

I don't believe this router is made by bosch. Typically craftsman products that have the 315.xxxxxx are maybe the same company that makes Ryobi.

The code 315 is a manufacturing code and the router most likely was manufactured by Ryobi using Sears Speicifications
315 Diehl Mfg Co (portable power tools, prior to Ryobi)
315 Ryan
315 RYOBI / Ryobi Motor Products

I picked one up for $90 on ebay a few months ago and made a similar post. Someone did have one and said it was decent machine (haven't used mine yet).

Unhappy

Well, from the lack of responses, I'm guessing not too many are using this router. Besides, it generally seems like the Craftsman routers have a history of being hard to find parts for. Maybe moreso the 315. #'s made by Ryobi? Thanks
