Replacement gears for Craftsman 17542 fixed base router
Hi, I'm new to the forum and I was hoping someone has had some experience with fixing the poor quality rack & gear height adjustment system on my Craftsman Fixed Base Router model 17542. The gears seem to be a big problem judging from what I have seen on the forum and I too have the same issue. The router itself is excellent for the price and probably has the best soft start on the market of any router I know of regardless of price. However, the height adjustment is soooo bad, that it renders the unit as close to useless as I can express. I intend to replace the spring as suggested by many but, from what I can see, replacement gears are probably the way to go. Does anyone know of a source fro replacement gears for this unit?
