Default Craftsman 315.25070

Hello all, I recently picked this router up at the flea market. I should have inspected it closer. The guy was too quick when I offered $10. Anyway there is a crack in the housing next to where the setscrew and thrust button goes. Will have to repair that and the locking lever, spring and bushing are missing. Oh the screw still there. This looks like the little brother to my 315.17480. Does anyone Know where i might find parts or a unit for part. In its day was this a good router. I plan was to put it a router table. Thank you for any help.

Wayne your best bet is probably finding another old one with good parts. You could try ereplacemnetparts but your chances aren't good. Most stuff for those old Sears routers is no longer available. Both routers were made by Ryobi which explains why they are similar.

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.

Thank you Charles for your advice. I'm still tinkering with one I bought. It ran ruff so I disassembled it and found the front bearing damaged. The bearings are Nachi. I reached out VXB a Nachi distributor and neither bearing is available. They offered replacements, but the grease speed rating of the front replacement is only 14000 rpm. The router is rated at 25000 rpm. Of course you can no longer find specifications on the old bearing. The rear bearing they offered is fine,28000 rpm. On another website I found a bearing similar to the old one and the replacement, but in the specs they mention oil and grease rating speed. My old bearing P/N's are: 6001Z (rear), and 6003NSL (front). VXB offered me, 6001ZZE and 6003-2NSE. These rating have me confused. Can one guide me in the right direction. Thank you for any help.
