You're welcome Darryl, glad to help. I just did a search on here as well and found the other thread you mentioned. I've never had to resort to WD-40 for mine, but I would try it if simple cleaning doesn't work. A lot of people knock these older Craftsman routers, but they are a good basic router. Certainly, there are a lot of better ones available today, but I will keep using mine until something breaks on it.
Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.
