Default Sears Router Manual

Friends :

I love working with wood - and just recently puchased ( Don'T Laugh )
a Sears Router Model 315 - 17361. It is complete and looks as though
it has never been used. One problem - No manual. Can anyone help ??
I have went to Manuals online sites - and they just want you to download
a bunch of other crap as well. Sears no longer has a download veresion for
model.

Hi Lowell. Welcome to the forum.

Lowell ... to get started, try this site ... http://www.searspartsdirect.com/part...n=&searchTerm=
Next, browse the Sears site for your manual. If not found, come back to our site and check the Manuals topic and select Craftsman. If you don't find your exact model number, select one that is closest to your number. Chances are that the instructions will apply to your model.

Lowell ~ For more information about your Craftsman router, check out this Craftsman blog. I am guessing your model is at least 30 years old and most likely limited to a 1/4in collet size. Yes, as you know, parts will be difficult to find. Ebay is a good place to search, if you should need parts.

I have a manual for model 315-17381 that I purchased in 1974 and still use. Don't know the difference beyween the ..381 and the ..361. If you want to give it a try, for a slight nominal fee :-) I could get a copy to you.

Let me know

Bob

Folks,

I have the same issue but with a new model, I do not purchase some like a router without looking at the manual. I want to purchase the following active Model at the Craftsman Site:

Craftsman 12.0 AMP/VS 2.25 HP Digital Plunge Base Router

item #00927669000
Mfr. model #27669

Yes, this is the one with digital training wheels ...

I can't find the manual at PartsDirect .. I spend 1/2 hr seaching ... then I tried the chat, the person chatting with me never heard of a Digital Router, or a Wood router.

Any help would be appreiciated.

-Fred
