I just spent an afternoon with my grandfather having him teach me how to use a router (in a table). I found myself really liking his router, however it's old enough the type number is scratched off. So I'm hoping you can help me identify it. He forgot how long ago he bought it.
The router is older, Craftsman (or B&D), blue, the handles are straight down (not curved or not ball handles), and (most importantly) it has a knob on the side that raises or lowers the bit. He had it attached to a removable table insert, so i couldn't see much more than that.
Now, the reason I ask is that it was a simple design, worked wonderfully, and was convienent to raise and lower the bit (unlike my current one). So I'm curious as to the model and whether I can find something similar today.
Perhaps someone on here might know of it or can point me in the right direction to find something similar today.
