Default Craftsman discontinued part

I have an older/discontinued Craftsman router and I need a replacement part. When I contact Sears/Craftsman they can't help me and tell me to buy a new one. The router is still in good condition except for this one part. Does anyone know where I can order replacement parts for Craftsman beside Sears?

The only place I know of for parts for these are garage sales and flea markets ... seriously ... I often see older Craftsman routers at these events.
If it is a bearing you are looking for you can get them from a bearing dealer. There will be number on the bearing you or they will be able to find and can replace it from that.

Hope this helps ... good luck on your quest

Check pawn shops. I visit a local pawn shop when getting an oil change at the dealer. They have a lot of Sears products. Personally, I don't buy Craftsman as they only keep parts for a few years plus they change a few things from the contract manufacturer's specs so all parts won't interchange.

What is the model number and what part do you need? I have a couple of older Craftsman routers.

Welcome to the forum Wetbeard. In the upper left corner of each post is the day it was posted. The one you are replying to was made on Dec 29, 2010. The last time Ken was on the forum was in 2012. He might still have the routers though and if he has the same email address as back then he might receive a Private Message from you which you need 10 posts here to be able to send him. You can post pictures or files of the part as long as they are in your hard drive by using the go advanced posting option.

What is the part you need for those of us who don't have the manual?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

That is the exact reason I quit buying Craftsman power tools. As said before, they discontinue the model and then everyone has problems later finding parts. I was contemplating buying a new bandsaw from them. It has all the features that I am looking for, but no one knows who manufactures it and I am afraid that I would be left with a big dinosaur in my shop if it broke.
I know this doesn't help with your original question, but again as stated before, try ereplacementparts.com. I've had some luck with them on a few parts.
