Default Ridgid 2900 part

Hello:

Sorry to bother but I have lost/misplaced the locking lever for the plunge base of the router combo. It is what releases the motor when making a plunge cut. The place that is the service/replacement part distributor here in Canada says that it no longer is available(which I think is BS because Home Depot still sells the entire unit) however they say they cannot get it.

Anybody have any ideas what I can do rig a replacement?

Thanks

Don

Thank you for the information. Good site to have handy

Looking at the diagram from Ridgid, which part is it that you need? I'll order it for you and you can reimburse me. Even Canadian is good. Send me a reply and an address at [email protected].

Do you have access to http://www.routerforums.com/general-...ridgid.com...? They have a parts ordering section and it does show the part available for $3.18...Locking lever / info plate...part 14...200276010.

I have the same router...

Couple of thoughts...

Recently there was a thread on a company that trans-ships to Canada, seems like Dan In Van gave them a try with success.

Next, if i'm looking at the right part of the diagram, part C-10 is an M-8 left hand thread on one end that screws into the plunge base. The other end is tapped as 6-32 for a screw (part C-12) to hold the lever in place. The lever (C-11) would look awesome as a hand-tooled piece of black walnut. Just thinking that if the US source is going to cost $40 +/- in either currency, might be worth a trip to a local hardware to go through the bins!!

Of course, i bet somebody in the lower 48 would be willing to send you a "birthday gift" if we run out of other options!! Eh-eh, nudge-nudge, nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse....(old Monty Python, for those few who might not know!!)

Good luck!!

Thanks everyone for the responses, I was able to find a distributor out of Columbus OH that was able to help me. They took my credit card and I was able to get it shipped as well. Looks like I lucked out.

Thanks again

Don
