Default New Toy - DWP611

Had to buy me another router this morning. My Ridgid R2401 gave up the ghost in the middle of a job.

RIP 2401. We had a lot of fun together.

I have the 611 pk with both bases and I love that little critter. They are a fun little machine to use.

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.

Now she knows you can never have too many tools. Gotta be able to cover your butt and "meet" deadlines.

Yep! Can never have enough wood stock piled or tools to cut it.

Shhhhh! Don't tell her, but I got my Ridgid working again tonight. Still have a bad bearing in it, but at least it runs again.

For twice the fun, have more than one!! Tee-hee-hee-hee!!!

Frank if it's running a little slow then shut it down until you get the bearing fixed. The drag on it can burn windings out. Bearings are generic so chances are that any local shop that sells them will either have one or can get one pretty quick. It should only be a 2-3 hr job to change them at most, faster if you are set up with the right tools.
