Duane Bledsoe Don't suppose you could revise it to show actual dust collection ports being available for the fixed base model? Shame on DeWalt for such a nice router and no dust collection.

Thanks to Larryc for revising the DW616/618 manual. I hope he doesn't mind but I found the images a little hard to read so I cut and pasted pictures from the actual manual into Larryc's much better version and I believe the images are now easier to read. Again, thanks Larry and hope you don't mind my changes. here is the revised revised manual. Roger

iih Hi Guys, just a quick note. A while back I questioned why my DW618 suddenly started running at high speed during an operation and would not reduce speed. I finally took it apart and found it was the magnetic ring that had broken, I purchase a new ring for $3.19 and pulled the bearing, replaced the ring and bearing and it works great. Dewalt did not offer any suggestions when I first called, only to say it would cost $98.00 to fix. After I fixed it, I called them back, and told them what I had done, and was told that would fix it, and the reason they would have charge so mush was that their hourly rate is $75.00. Just thought this may help others as during the session previously, it was apparent others had a similar problem. Hope this helps someone.

usaimages Thank you so much for making the manual available to those of us who do not have one. I have just purchased a used Dewalt DW616 router w/plunge base and had no idea how to set it up. I have never had or used a router before, but needed one to install some Soss #218 hinges. We will see how that works out.
