Hi, all!

I'm new to woodworking. I just bought a Hitachi M12vc router. I haven't done anything with it yet other than attempt to remove the motor housing from the base.

I've followed the directions, turning it until the base pin disengages from the motor house grove, but the housing won't lift free from the base. Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Is there an additional trick not in the manual?

Thanks,

Aaron

Hello Aaron , glad you found us, it's great to have you as a member of the community, welcome to Router Forums.

Should open the lever on side and spin it up and remove it. You should come off quite easily

Thanks for the response. It must be defective, because it's completely unscrewed and still won't come off.

I take that back. I gave it one last really hard twist and it finally came loose. Thanks. Hope to have other reasons to post here soon.
