Manual for Craftsman 2HP combo router (model 320-27683)
I have absolutely no experience with wood routers, but I bought the captioned a few weeks ago because of all the good things I have read over the years about wood routers and because of the good reviews for this router. Unfortunately, I found its accompanying manual (Getting The Most From Your Router) to be very unsatisfactory, so I started looking for other manuals and instruction guides (as a matter of fact, I will be leaving for the San Diego Central Library in a few minutes to review their books to help me decide which book to buy). In any event, before leaving, I made a Google search for wood router manuals and came across this site. Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything on my particular model, but the attitude displayed by many of the members is very encouraging, and I'm hoping for some positive feedback upon my return. That's about it. I need basic information about setting my router up (the manual I have doesn't even identify the parts). After that, I will need help with actually operating my router, but first things first. YouTube has many interesting videos, but my first job is to assemble and began using my router for the most basic jobs.
Oh, one last thing: I have found that I can't get any help from Sears/Craftsman. So, despite the fact that I bought my router on the basis of favorable reviews, I won't be buying any more Craftsman power tools.
