Default Oldie but a goodie - Black and Decker

I bought this Model 3315 in 1970, used it about 45 minutes and put it in the cupboard. We moved to Idaho in 1978 and have been in the same house since that move...the router has been in the back of that same cupboard all this time. I just thought some of you might like to look at this relic.

I've cut it twice and it's still too short! But only at one end.

Cool, almost looks like an old Porter Cable. Those were back in the days of decent B&D products!

I just ordered a new Wing Nut and collet and Manual for a B&D Model 3310. I have no idea how old it is. My wife bought it for my son-in-law to use.

Looks at lot like an old craftsman I have in a dust bin somewhere, but not in the good shape you have displayed.

Seems that many things have many names - but made by the same company. Ummm...

I used the B&D router this afternoon for some minor slot work. It runs just like it did the day I took it out of the box. Gee, I'm feeling a wave of nostalgia sweeping over me.

Good eye Birdflu, in different colors and stickers this model is the same as one of the Craftsman professional routers.(I had one) Yes, both were built by B&D.

Wow that brings back memories. My first router was a B&D, made in Brockville ON. A beast on start-up. Made some great projects with it. My son refuses to let me sell it even though it sits in its case in my off site storage!
