Default router problems

My name is Rick, I live in Cornwall ON. CA. I discovered about 28 years ago that I have a knack for building furniture, and other projects made from wood. I am also pretty handy at doing other things as well. I am one of those people that could of been a plumber, auto mechanic, electrician, you name and I can do it. There are some things that get me stumped, I have a Craftsmans router, that I took into a shop 3 weeks ago. I have gone back a couple of times to see how they were coming along in repairing the thing. I have been to busy with other projects to try to repair it myself. I picked it up yesterday, and the guy said to me they could not take it apart to take a look at the brushes. I was pretty upset with the guy, they are suppose to be able to do these things. Well I brought the router home, and started to take it apart; can you guess what happened, I have been unable to take it apart as well. The question I have is, how do you take a Craftsman 800 apart.
Thanks for any help you can give me. Richard Mathurin

Post a model number and I'll have a look(The one like 315.xxxxxxxx).

Also you should be abe to get the parts breakdown at...

You will still need that model number, tho.

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

Welcome to the forum, Rick.

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

If there is a way to assemble, then there's a way to disassemble.

I know, not much help.

Hi Rick:

I could not find information on the exact model (315.240070), but found something similar at Craftsman 315245000 Parts List and Diagram :

There is a Note A on the diagram. The reason of the Note A might explain why people are having problem disassembling the motor unit.

The easy way just cut off the ring, that's the biggest down fall with that type of router.
