Default Mastercraft Plunge Router, model 54-7036-6

Hello All...I noticed two articles on the above router...I am need of an
on/off switch for it and was looking around on where to order one when I
came across this site...I have registered, as I do a lot of workworking and
there are alot of people out there with great ideas..
I agree with one member that it isn't the best router I have ever used, but
I received it as a gift as well...I have had to go back to a very old Craftsman
router that keeps on going and going

Any info on where to get a switch for this model would be appreciated

Hi Jim

It maybe time to just put the one you have on the shelf and be done with it

How about a new one for 80.oo bucks ?,,, I have one and got it for 50.oo bucks on sale and it'a great router for the money and it comes with many extra items...see below...

Bj is probably right, time to get a new one. Lots of good deals available right now with the Christmas season approaching.

Found a couple of phone numbers for Canadian Tire, might be worth a try.

Customer Service / Shop by Phone: 1 866 746 7287
Customer Relations 1-800-387-8803 (English)

Please let me know how you make out. I've bought lots of power and hand tools from them, as well as a ton of other stuff, over the years but I've never attempted to get repair parts for anything.

Hi Jim, and welcome. I got the GMC router Bj mentioned the same time he got his and even at 80 bucks it's a good buy.
