Default craftsman router model 735-2

Hi guys

I'm new to this forum don't even know if I'm posting in the right area, well here go's someone will tell me if I'm not , I bought a job lot from e bay last week and part of the lot there was a couple of routers one being a cheap B/q special and the other a craftsman's with no accessories ,it has turned out to be a good router with little use. I don't know anything about this machine s i live in the united kingdom and i understand they where distributed by Sears in the United States .

Its a craftsman router P9209 model 735-2 1/2 horse power 550W 25,000 RPM. can anyone tell me the age of this machine and where i could possible get an owner / instruction manual for it ,and possible accessories for it.

I noticed in the side of the router there are two small machine threaded hole just under the adjustment ring could anyone tell me what these are for please . look forwards to your replies thanks for any relies in advance .
kind regards MARTIN

Hi Martin

You may want to try Sears for the user manual and the parts you are short..

BUT Sears jobs out the job for making the routers for them..it can be a PC,Bosch,etc.

here's a link to manuals with luck you may find yours listed it will take a bit of digging but maybe it's worth a shot.....

You may want to drop a email to Amazedz he may have the manual you need , I did a quick check on ebay the part number you have may not be the right one..

I'm sure you know that the Craftsman routers only run on 60 Hz. You may find this model was produced by Ryobi since they built a good number of routers for Sears.

Martin, we all learn something new everyday. This is the first I have heard of a Craftsman router being designed for use outside North America. I hope you will be able to post a photo of this model so others can use it as a reference.

Note: You need 10 postings before you can attach photos or URL's the easy way.

Hi guys

something i just thought of which I'm not sure about , having never used one of these craftsman's router before, is the diameter of the motor shell which slides into the base unit the same diameter on all craftsman's router right across the range am i right in thinking the motor will fit in say an ordinary base unit, or a plunge router base and not sure what the others bases are called etc. or do they vary in diameter from model to model . thanks in advance .

Hi Mike

" Note: You need 10 postings before you can attach photos or URL's the easy way "

Must be a error in the spam block
garvan only had 7 posted items but he did post pictures b/4 the 10 post point.

see below

I always thought it was a bit strange,, any one that knows about computers can get right around the spam block with a snapshot, with the URL showing
I think 3 posted min. would be good for pictures, but the URL is good at 10 posted items...
I don't think the spammers would stick around for 4 post.

How -to- upload pictures to the forum
