Default Skill 1817 Won't shut off

If you have a problem with the on/off switch not wanting to go to the off position, pull the base, then remove the T8 (silver) screw. Pry out the switch cover from the middle of the motor body. You'll find all the wood dust that blocks the movement. To replace the cover it has to be bowed quite a bit to go back in place under the red part of the motor cover.

Welcome to the forum Mark. If a router won't start or stop quite often the culprit is dust in the switch. A lot of the newer routers have sealed switches that prevents this.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
