Default need part

I have a Sears router mod # 315.275000. I need part # 974098-001 which I cannot find. Anyone know where these parts would be available? The bearing went kapute and tore the lower bearing plate up. Thanks

Richard that router was made by Ryobi, but that part may well be unique to the Craftsman model. In any case Ryobi would be Sears supplier for that part.

Another router for parts would be your only likely source.

At it's age... think it's just time for a new router.

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

Hi Richard welcome to the forum. Hope to hear more from you other than your current part search. If you have a router from 1999, either this is a second-hand tool, or you've been at routing for a long time.

As for your search for a bearing plate, the router is too old to get a new one for. It's outlived it's usefulness according to Sears. You could check your local pawn shops for a model close to it. I know the pawn shops around me are loaded with old Sears routers.

Good luck with your search. If you don't find what you're looking for, and don't want to fork out the $100+ for a new one, again, the pawn shops are a good place to look for another one at a reasonable price. That's where I got my first router, and check back periodically to see what they have in stock. Never know if I'm gonna find one to add to the shop. (A wood gurl can never have too many wood tools!!!!)

Thanks to ya'll for your replys. Junk the Sears. Found an Ryobi that fit the purpose for $25.00. Is doing the work so far. Will probably get another DeWalt and NEVER another Sears. Thanks again and God Bless.
