Default Erbauer 2100w plunge spring removal

Hi all and new to forums. I bought an Erbauer 2100w (ERB361ROU) and I want to table mount it. I know this has been asked before but no detailed instructions were posted....how do I remove the plunge springs and baseplate? The links for the Frued etc etc do not work with this model. I have followed the video's instructions and that doesnt work. This router has a screw under the baseplate on the right hand side in line with that spring that just spins around when you try to un-screw it. It has the fine depth adjust on the left has side (on top) and a press pin thru the shaft at the bottom near the base. There is a post from Tom Hagg that asks the same question and he says he has done it and thx for the help but with no details I have looked on Screwfix site for the 'Technical Dept' as someone else has said and I cannot locate it...any and all help would be much appreciated. I have already built my table, lift mechanism, fence and router carriage and this is the last step...
cheers all,
Sleeper

Mis-spelled Erbauer in the original title...how do you edit a posted post?

If I remember correctly, I dismantled one a couple of years ago to use on my cnc machine, you will have to take the front of the motor off to get the spring out. There are four screws on the unit holding the front part, with the front bearing, on to the rest of the motor. Once these are removed the front can be slid off and the internal parts like the spring can be removed. You will be left with holes where the support legs from the base were located, you may want to block those off to avoid debris getting into the motor.
Regards

Default Thanks!

Thanks, I will go try that this afternoon. It would have been a waste to get the hacksaw out on a brand new unit I will let you know the results and many thx again as I would never have thought to take the case apart (after watching those videos of how to do every other router).

Default Erbauer 2100 Plunge springs removal

Hmm, AxeltheHun,
My router has 4x screws surrounding the chuck (holds the motor to the metal half of the body?), 4x screws thru the metal lower body into the plastic/rubber upper body and 4x screws on the top holding the plastic/rubber 'cap' to the plastic/rubber upper half. I removed the 4x on top and it just exposes the upper part of the motor and the speed control circuitry. Tommorrow, I will remove the 4x screws that hold the lower body to the upper body unless this jogs your memory?
thx again.

Default screws to remove

If all goes well there should be a picture attached showing the lower end of a similar router I took the plunge base from. The screws you need are the four in a square pattern holding the lower metal part of the body on to the plastic upper part. This will also take the rotor out of the router as the shaft is firmly attached to the front bearing behind the smaller cover you see in the picture. You will also have to remove the brushes before you do this as withdrawing the rotor will have those popping inside making it very difficult to re-insert the rotor. With the brushed removed it is not a problem: just put rotor back in, replace screws and then put brushes back in place.
Hope this helps.

Alex

I know this is an old post but I've got a question and hope someone will be able to help me? I've removed everything like mentioned in the instructions and the question is how can I mount it back to the table plate? I had it mounted before but to adjust height with springs on was a nightmare. Can I just put the base back without those plastic springs? And maybe use some dry lube to not attract dust that much onto the spindles?

Thank you,
Tomas
