I have a Craftsman router model #315.275000 that spun the bearing in the lower bearing plate. Anyone know where I might find a lower bearing plate? I hate to throw the whole router out as the rest is in fine shape. Thanks to all and God bless ya'll.

welcome Tesser..
I trust you have contacted sears for what you need w/o success....
were you at least able to get a replacement bearing???

if the bearing still fits the plate w/o any sloppiness you might be able to seat it w/ one or two drops of Locktite gray...
and you need to change the bearing...
other wise there may be a new Bosch router in your future...

That is a fairly old model number so I'm guessing the part isn't available. It was made for Sears by Ryobi but I don't know if that will help you find one. The bearing should be generic. I would try Stick's suggestion or some metalized epoxy to lock it in place. Eventually you have to look at replacing it.

From my own experiences with SEARS, YOU need to just buy a new router and keep this old one for parts. I have 3 Craftsman Routers @ the moment: I am very lucky they all still work.

Hi Tesser. Welcome to our little corner of the 'net.

As others have indicated, getting parts for older power tools from Sears is akin to searching for the Holy Grail... both impossible to find.

As Charles stated, the bearing should be a generic item. If you have an industrial supply house, or even a shop that repairs small electric motors, you should be able to source the bearing thru them.

or by imbeciles who really mean it.

Welcome aboard.

Sometimes you have to pick your battles. Do you have the time and skill to repair it or throw it away and go buy a new one that will serve you for many years to come?

The Bosch 1617EVSPK comes to mind. Oh yeah, I have two if those combos!
