Default Newbie needs help

Hello all;
My name is Dick, live in w/central NC and I need help with an old Craftsman router (Model 315.17380) It needs new brushes--which Sears in all their wisdom don't stock anymore. I know there is only so many brush profiles made so does anyone know of a likely source that I may be able to find some to fit? She's old, but doesn't deserve to be junked just for lack of brushes. Thanks,
Dick

Hello Dick and welcome to the forum.
Here is a website to try for your brushes.
HTML Code:
http://www.ereplacementparts.com
If they don't have what you need I would try a local motor rebuilder
