Default Base plate attachment for craftsman

Does anyone have information on where I can get a edge guide for a Craftsman 1.5 router model number 315.17492? Will have to be one that replaces the subbase on my router

Good Morning sixmedic's
Some of the tool stores have been listed separately Some by other tool stores. You can also go on line and order them. It will take a little checking to find a store! In Holland, We go to a Sears tool Center owned separately by another owner, and They have smaller tools on hand, the table saws and large pieces do need to be ordered from the catalog.. Call a Sears Store, and They may be able to tell you how to proceed!

Have checked with Sears and their tool store and they said they are not showing this model router and have no access to information on edge guide for this model. I know there has to be someplace that has what I need just to find it now. Also have Craftsman Plunge router model 315.268350 if I could find one for it would work for what I need. If you have contact number to order guide from I would greatly appreciate it. Will keep me from buying a different make of router.

Hi Bill. Welcome to our little corner of the 'net.

315 denotes Ryobi as the manufacturer of that router. Sears is almost useless as a source for parts and accessories for all but their recent offerings.

Are there mounting holes for an edge guide on either of your routers? These would be holes thru from one side to another, parallel with the bottom plate. If not, think you are out of luck.

Have thought about making one? It's pretty easy and you can customize it for your exact need. Lots of plans out there.

Didn't know 315 was code for Ryobi the plunge router does have adapter holes for rods on a edge router. Think Ryobi might have edge guide that would work? Try anything right now if it would keep me from having to buy new router.

An edge guide is "almost" a universal thing. If the holes line up, and the edge guide will fit, then chances are it will work for you.

Just to clear up kind of a misconception... It's Ryobi that discontinues that stuff. If Ryobi has it, Sears can get it! Ryobi is Sears source for those parts.

That said there are several 3rd party edge guides available. Google is your friend. It will be worth while to measure the diameter of the holes and spacing between them. That way you will know what will fit and what won't. Those two measurements are usually published for edge guides.

Also there are many plans available to make your own. If you make one that attaches as a base plate, they are cheap and very easy to make.

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

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.
