Web Shepherd Hi, John ~ I believe that Gary provided the correct model number and a link to a Popular Mechanics tool review. Meanwhile, I Googled the model number and found a manual, which I just now uploaded to our manual category. Your yellow variable speed dial is pictured on page 20. But unfortunately it is not included in the parts list on page 21, which Sears indicates is part of the motor assembly that is serviceable only by a Sears repair center. It's possible that another member might have this part available from a "cannibalized" router.
Hope that this helps. Good luck on your repair.

John10ey Thanks for that info. I've decided to take the motor out and build it into a table with homemade lifter. The switch was tricky to get out of the handle but I've got it out and it all works, variable speed and all. The motor seems fine.

Thanks for the model number. That will help in the future.

John10ey I tried putting a metal circular clamp on it. That tightened up the crack, but it was still impossible to move.

I have it apart in one photo but a distinguishing feature is 2 yellow bands and a movable ruler.

Thanks, John
Looks like the Craftsman #17511

Cherryville Chuck Welcome to the forum John. I'm not sure what your chances are of finding that part but you might be able to glue it back together. It is probably ABS I would guess but there are some epoxies now that claim to be able to glue any plastic.

old55 Welcome to the forum John. I'm sure someone will be along to give advice.
