For the life of me I have been trying to do a fine depth adjustment on this 2767 craftsman router, but to no avail. All I can get it to do is slide the motor up and down when I unlock the clamp. Can some one tell me how to make adjustments with the knob. I would be greatly appreciate it thank you I have it mounted in a craftsman table

Hello N/A and welcome to the forums...

I am familiar with craftsman numbers but this one only shows 92767 on the box, I will look later to see if there is a better number on the router itself, I may need to take it out of the table, also I posted in the wrong spot I should have posted in general routing hopefully and admin will move it

no real problem on where ya posted...
it would be nice if you'd add a 1st name to your profile and clear the N/A...

the number you are looking for should be on the nomenclature plate on the router...

There should be 3 numbers then a period and then usually about 5 more. The first 3 denote who the manufacturer is. That might be the 320. I don't remember which manufacturer that is offhand. Most were 315 which is Ryobi. It the router has a rack and pinion style adjustment then I don't recommend you use it in a router table. I tried the one I have once without thinking it through and the first time I unlocked it it it fell on the table under it.Luckily I was trying to install it in my benchtop router table. If it isn't rack and pinion then I'm not sure what it is according to your description. You can post pictures of it from your hard drive by using the Go Advanced posting option and looking for the Manage Attachments button. If you need help with that just ask.

As Chuck said it is a rack and pinion. When the lever is unlocked and the button is pushed in it wants to just fallout. I can no longer find the video on youtube, but a posting shows that the bottom of the adjustment knob has an allen screw that can be accessed with an allen wrench to turn the adjustment, just drill a hole in the table top, now I found a comment that the spring is too weak to keep the gears meshed, this might be the main issue I need to look at the mechanism closer

OK upon taking a closer look, the adjustment knob will allow the motor to lower when setup in a table, but when you try to raise the motor the 2 gears separate (disengage) and it will not raise. I do not think a stronger spring or putting shims in the spring will solve the problem. I think this is a poor design.
