Default Atlas copco ofse 2000

Can anyone help. My grandsons router keeps cutting out like it has a misfire. I suspect it is the speed control unit part number 76348.7019. Has anyone else experienced the problem. I have checked the brushes and they are fine.

Hi Glyn and welcome. I found this thread from 7 years ago. According to Phil P it was the same router as a Freud FT 2000E router. We've seen a number of those that had issues with the speed controller. The problem if I remember correctly was an old style graphite wafer type potentiometer type speed control. The graphite could crack under the vibration present when routing. I'm sure there are no parts available. Collets were another issue and they are also non existent. Your only fix would be to bypass the speed controller. If you do much routing you should start getting prepared to purchase a newer router. Those ones were not well made. That's a voice of experience. I owned one.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Glad you joined, sorry for the not so glad news. If you decide to replace the router, give the Bosch 1617 EVSPK a look, one of our favorites.

Welcome Glyn. Seems this router has a history but there are good affordable routers on today's market that will perform well and are well supported. I'm a big fan of Bosch as are others but a mainstream make will likely have better support and parts availability if/when needed.
