Router Recreator

Contrary to previous posts, you can get manuals for older tools from sears.
The manual for the Router Recreator can still be purchased from Sears (Part number 76005) or you can download it free.
Since I still cannot post URLs go to managemyhome at the usual dot com prefix and click on manuals. Then you can enter the part number and/or model number of the Recreator.

New link for Router Recreator Manual

That link for the manual is broken, I found a copy here;

http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0710170.pdf

Thanks for posting the pics bobj3. Could you post some more of some of the projects you have used it for? I looked a bit through the forum and haven't yet found any.

I have this machine and would love to get some ideas of what it would be useful for, especially if it could replace a panto router.

I would love to be able to make;

Milk crate inspired wooden boxes

but getting all the mortises accurately lined up is putting me off...

Hi Jubilee

Thanks for the PDF file, I have tried to upload the one I have but it was always to big for the forum, but I have added the file you posted the manual files..

I will did around a bit and see if I can find some files to upload.

But I will say I don't think the Recreator is the tool for the job for the Milk crate boxes..

Yeah, didn't really see the recreator working for that. That's why I was hoping for some project examples.

As for the milk crate, I guess a template, with all five mortises, carefully centered should work. Make it as accurately as possible and mirror it top to bottom to account for small errors...

Hi

I did find one picture on the HD I didn't take many pictures of the projects I made with it...
It's more of a copy cat machine but it can be use free also.

But the milk crates you want make and the web page you posted is of a guy that used 5 machine (plus fixtures) he made to make them ,he is very sharp ..

I for one would not put in the five mortises in place I would just put in a long slot and put in some spaces to fill the gaps..

Yeah, I found Matthias Wandel's site when I was planning some modular "milk crate" like book storage cases a couple of years ago. He is my hero... baby steps!

Yes, long slots would be a lot simpler... :)
