Default craftsman 315.269210 depth adjustment

This was a good router. I haven't used it quite a while. The depth adjustment doesn't turn anymore! Anyone else have this problem?

i would take it apart and do a good cleaning and oiling . If something is stuck and won't come loose with a good force. Don't break anything go get some PB blaster and spray the out side item's Don't spray inside motor . good luck

Hi Bob - Welcome to the forum
Those old Craftsman things are a PIA. Probably had some sawdust in the adjustment mechanism that solidified on you. Might be able to take it apart and clean it up, PB Blaster, WD-40 or similar might loosen it up enough to do that. Here's a link to a parts explode that may help:

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