Default CRAFTSMAN "ROUT-A-SIGNER"

I Have A New Craftsman Rout-a-signer Given To Me But With No Diagram Or Manual. I Do Not Know If I Have It All Nor Do I Know How It Goes Together. Not Much Help From Sears. Any Help Would Be Appreciated As It Is New And I Would Like To Use It
Thanks :d

Go to a local Sears and ask them to photocopy or order a copy of the manual?

Is is similar enough to the Rockler version (TurnLock™ Router SignCrafter™ System) that you can use their on-line manual as a guide to setting up your Sears tool?

Hi k1wml

I would suggest you pickup one off ebay at the right price or drop the guy a email that's selling it and ask him for a copy of the maual...can't hurt and I almost sure it would be quicker than Sears....

Sears number below
(800) 252-1698
Just a note they don't show the model number on the web site below so it could be hard finding a manual for it..

Hey K1....you could do all the above. Or you could save a lot of time and frustration by dumping that @#$#$$%@# in the garbage and looking elsewhere. Trust me-been there.
Someday somebody will create a nice little sign making tool that actually WORKS without dozens of user made modifications.

Hi,
Go to (I can't list the URL, if you want the URL private message me) and download manual number 1206. That will give you a inventory of what should be in the box and a basic idea of how to use it. If you still have questions I have the craftsman model 25972 and I will be happy to make a copy and send it to you if it will help. Thanks, Joe

Joe, you can post the url, you just have to be creative about it.

For example.... signcrafter at sears dot com or something similar.

There is a section of the forum that we are trying to compile users manuals for just such an occasion.

Brian,
Thank You so much for the help, I was going to send him my user manual if I got too much grief from the forum. The other option is I can send him a PDF, that way he will have it right now. Thanks again Brian, Joe

ICE, Email me the PDF and I will post it in our reference section. The no posting thing is valid until you make 10 posts. This eliminates the spam bots from striking us. I know it is a hassle but it is the best solution to date.
