Hello Pat! Welcome to the forums! Glad that You joined us. I would give us all the information about the router, model kind 1/4, or 1/2 inch system, and so. They can be different in the way each manufacture does things. I am sure that one of us can help. and do You have a manufactures booklet to guide You, and lastly How old is it? That also helps Thanks Pat!

I am having the same problem with my 175040 router. The motor will not not go back into the "Dept Adjusting Ring" when I slid it back into the base. I have cleaned and checked the base for any burrs. It appears to be the DAR(Dept Adjusting Ring) that is not properly threading on the motor. Is there some technique or secret that I am missing? HELP!! Gary
