Hello fellow woodworking enthusiasts,
Despite my age I consider myself a rookie woodworker. I do not have a formal woodworking area in the home but instead rely on space in a local, community woodworking shop. Having just taken a course on router fundamentals I thought I'd better dust off my old Sears Craftsman router and put it to use. What I am trying to locate, so far without any luck is the instruction/parts manual. Does anyone have a copy of the manual for a Sears Craftsman Router, model 315.17361 (6 amps, 25,000 rpm)? I believe this model was manufactured in the 1970s. Apparently it is no longer available from Sears.

Thanks.

Welcome to the forum Paul. If you go to the Forums home page there is a section on manuals that might include yours. I can tell you that your router was made by Ryobi. Any Craftsman tool that begins with 315 was made by them.

Once you know the basics of routing, a manual for a router that old is pretty useless.
If it only takes 1/4" bits, plan on upgrading sooner the better to avoid cash invested in 1/4" rather than the better 1/2" shafted ones.
YMMV and IMHO.
