Default stanely "R2D2" dome-top Router (H-39-B)

Hello,
I was lucky enough to find one of these great little routers at a flea market for $15. Could not pass it up. It even has the guide. It is if fairly good shape and the bearings sound great. Looks Identical to the photos in this thread. I cleaned it up and checked the brushes. Cord is not original but that is to be expected with a piece this old. Serial no is CU5150, 4.0 A, 115V. Any idea of the age based on this? I know from what I have read that this basic Stanely Carter design dates back to the late 20's which is pretty cool. Also is an manual out there for this router? It would be great to have it. Thanks.

Todd

Chris, no parts are available for any of these routers.

Default primitive Stanley shaft lock

I have an old Stanley it has no locking button; there is a hole that goes through the motor shaft located just above the collet nut. I use a heavy tapered scratch awl through the hole and let it jamb up against the base while tightening or loosening the collet with an 1 1/4" wrench. I suppose that a straight pin punch of the proper size would also be a good tool for the job.

Any chance someone could send me a drawing of the wiring under the dome top or a picture of it. My power cord was disintegrating (original) and I cut it under the top without drawing the wire connections or taking a picture.

Sometimes I get tired of re-learning from previous lessons learned.

Default Stanley H14a Router (R2D2)

Don't know if anyone has answered, but on the top of dome is a round button (flush with top). Just push that down and it will lock the motor so you can tighten the bits in the collet. I ended up with my dad's ole router. I started using this unit when I was about 8 years old, am now in my 70's. Don't know when my dad purchased this, but it was new and for a router, has about equivalent of a million miles on it". He was a cabinet maker and used it all the time! Along with that, I also have his old delta 2 inch belt sander and other equipment. These are all stored in some of the best carry caress you could buy in the late 40's-early 50's. 50 caliber ammo boxes. Carry well and protect even better. 1 for router, 1 for electric drill, and one for 2" belt sander. Along with these, is the 8 inch Delta table say and 4 inch jointer. All still work well, but currently stored away due to lack of space at new house.

Default Stanley H13B

Is there anyone with a working Stanley H13B router - If so is there any chance you could send me a picture of one of the brushes and take some measurements so I can manufacture a couple to fix my old router

A generous offer but he joined solely for that one post in 2017 and hasn't been back since.

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.
