Hi,

I'm recently retired and getting back into woodworking. Was using a Ryobi router and the chuck lock, which had been working, is no longer grabbing. Could I have stripped it if it was on lock and the router turned on accidently?

Is a Ryobi worth fixing if I did strip it?

Thanks

Joe from NJ

Hi Joe - Welcome to the forum
Sorry to hear about your luck. Does the armature shaft have flats on it to where you can get a wrench on it? If it does, you can just change bits that way.
If not, either find out what parts you need and price them out or take it to a service center and get an estimate. Most Ryobi's I've seen are going for about $100 so if your repair costs get close to that you have a decision to make. You may also want an upgrade. You didn't say in your post which router you have and I confess, I haven't looked at your profile yet.
If you haven't got one, you should be able to find a parts explode online at ereplacementparts.com

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

In woodworking there is no scrap, only firewood.
