Default Craftsman router adjusting ring

I have a Craftsman #315.269211 route that the depth adjusting ring has frozen. I noticed it was getting harder to turn and then competely froze up. I though maybe the grooves got packed with chips, but they appear to be clean. Tried spraying some WD-40 and using a clamping wrench on it but can't get it to loosen? SUGGESTIONS?

Great forum, Im 43 years old and just starting to get the woodworking bug.
Have boat and go fishing in the summer. Wood working is something I`m not so sure will stick to me quite yet. I am starting to aquire some tools that are stowable because I need to use my garage for many things. Good to be here and learn the in and outs of routers. I bought the Craftsman router combo 17243? something like that.

Jim,

Some one may be along to answer your question. But if not I would ask you to search the forum. I believe that is a common problem with these routers.
