Hello all. I am new to routing and am concerned I ruined my router before I started using it. The course adjustment knob works well but the fine adjustment knob does nothing. It turns just great... endlessly, apparently without any effect.
Like the noob I am., I initially started turning the fine adjustment knob with the router latched securely in the base. Did I strip something?
There's a clip that attaches to the adjustment shaft, I believe it's at the top of the threaded part. If you over tightened this clip can slip up and the knob will turn endlessly. I've done that a couple of times before I learned. If that's the problem, you can push the clip back to where it belongs.
Sorry this is kind of a vague description. Due to back surgery earlier this year I haven't been in the shop for a while. If you need a better description of what I'm talking about please let me know and I can have my wife help me and I can try to take a picture.
