    So I recently have expanded into using a router with my projects and when I went to visit my parents, my dad gave me 2 routers that my grandmother had left me when she died. However with me living across the country I could only take with me what I could carry. Now I didn’t need anything...
  2. Table-mounted Routing
    Hey everyone, just picked up an older craftsman table saw with an attached Craftsman router table extension. So I know that not any router will fit but is there a universal attachment so I can fit a different one or do I need to find a Craftsman router for the table? Also it did not come with a...

    As I am retired now and have plenty of time I scanned this manual, cleaned it up using Paint.net, and here is probably the nicest copy on the Internet for use by my friends here at RouterForums.com

    I ran into an issue today that lead me to believe I'm going to need to buy a set of additional sub-bases for my fixed base router, in order to use some of my bits. The opening in the standard base is only 1-1/4" and so will not accommodate the majority of my bits at this point. I do know...

    Hey Everyone, I'm new to woodworking and router use. I would like as many tips and links to help me get started on router operation. Also I was given my router by my grandfather and I need a manual for it, but the manual is out of print and I can't find it anywhere. Its for a Sears Craftsman...

    I got this 315.174921 Craftsman 1 1/2hp. router with a router table. The good deal on the table is why I bought it, but there was router with it. (I bought it from Habitat for Humanity resale shop, so don't know the owner, etc.) The collet and collet nut are quite rusty as you can see in...

    Hi, my name is Wesley and I'm from Mississippi. Looks like you guys have a nice board here. Thanks for letting me in. I have a pretty basic question, hence one of the reasons I stumbled upon you guys. I have three routers, but this question is regarding the Craftsman 9.5 amp 1 3/4HP Model No...

    I'll put this thread here (for reference to my previous post) then continue posting on other headings as needed. Solved my own problem - I did an end run around the whole thing! Other threads elsewhere kept alluding to "dust in the switch" as a possible resolution to this problem and this has...

    Hi, I'm Nancy. I'm brand new to woodworking and this forum. I have a Craftsman Plunger Router Model 320.27669 12amp, 2HP with 1/2" collets and 1/4" collets. The router is brand new with the 1/2" collet already installed. I purchased a Leigh FMT Super Jig to make Mortises and Tenons for several...
  12. Portable Routing
    I have an older Craftsman router with a plastic depth gauge that won't tighten enough to hold the depth adjustment. It slips and I don't want to tighten it down so hard that the threads get stripped on the tightening knob. It appears that the plastic collar won't close any further in order to...

    Anyone know where I might pick up a Height Adjusting Pinion (part #2-606534-01) for this router. Rather old but still works great other than the teeth on the pinion are quite worn (and 1 or 2 are broken). Hate to ditch any tool due to a half dollar part not being available. If there's no way to...

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and I was hoping someone has had some experience with fixing the poor quality rack & gear height adjustment system on my Craftsman Fixed Base Router model 17542. The gears seem to be a big problem judging from what I have seen on the forum and I too have the same issue...

    Folks, I have tried to purchase the Craftsman 2 hp 10 amp Digital Router twice. The first time I had it shipped to the store, shipment and store pickup was Very smooth. When I got it home, I tried to remove the screws holding the base faceplate with no luck. I tried power tools and WD40 …...

    Hi routing community. I'm Mike, in Reston, VA, and I've only needed to use my old router a couple of times in the last 10 years - and I'm pretty sure I haven't needed to remove the 3/8" corner-round bit I leave in the collet. So you can call me a newbie. I just bought an old Craftsman router...
