Greetings; I have a 3/4 hp fixed base router that worked fine new, a couple years ago. It has had very little use. Now, when I turn it on it goes up to full rpms then decelerates so low that it wont work on the wood. I checked the bushings & they're fine. Is anyone familiar with this kind of problem?

Sounds like a bad speed control module.

Thats why I quit having Craftsman routers about 20 years ago and started using Bosch . The one I had the bearings got bad and I tried to fix it my self and the bearings were only available at Sears made special for Sears that did it for me . I have not had a problem with Bosch .
