Default Need motor armature

The router I have had for years has died on me and I found out the armature has broken down, I am wondering if by chance some one salvage old router for the parts and sell the parts on the side. I know of another forum on another piece of equipment that is the case. I sure would like to find an armature for this obslete router as it is part of the family to me. I am really enjoying this forum and trying to get my 10 posts in so I can really get in on some of the good information. Thanks a lot to everyone. Almost forgot the the iimportant part, This ia a Sears router Model 315.269210, I wish Sears still have them on the shelf, I would buy another one.

Hi Willie. Welcome to our little corner of the 'net.

In all honesty, I would move on and purchase a newer router. I know, the older Craftsman routers are workhorses, but there are better options available for a very reasonable price. Sears regularly puts their multiple base routers on sale for a great price.

But, if, like you say, this is "part of the family" then I think your only option is to watch flea markets, ebay, craig's list, etc in the hopes that someone will have one for sale that you can scavage for parts. Possibly a shop that repairs electric motors might be able to find an armature for you.

Good luck with whatever you decide.

Brian

or by imbeciles who really mean it.

Should you really want to keep the old part of the family then I would suggest a motor repair shop. They could rewind the armature for you. I have no idea the cost but their quote for the job should enable you to make the decision.
