Hello all. First time post. Also first time router owner. I picked up a Sears Craftsman 200 specifically for a small project that I wish to undertake. Was that a wise choice?

I was hoping that someone here would be kind enough to assist me in determining its model number. And, if possible, assist me in locating a user manual for it as well.

Thank you in advance. Peter

on your router is a data plate sticker that has your router's information...
Look for a number that is formatted like this: 315.17XXX.
There should be three digits and then a dot and then the rest of the model number. No letters.
that's your router model number...

It was on that plate sticker as you stated. Right under my nose. It reads 315.244900. The funny thing is that it comes up with this:

Model #315274900 Craftsman drill-misc craftsman

I wonder if the numbers were different for Canadian models, maybe just a couple of digits. I've noticed that on laptops and Coleman lanterns, when trying to find manuals.

Good morning @TenGees. I had responded to and submitted a response to your post but forgot to login. Came back to find that all was lost. In any case, you are correct. I have been in IT for a few decades and have seen this happen a lot. Not only do the model numbers vary but some of the products just outright never make it to Canadian store shelves.

This happens far too often. I have experienced some of that myself recently with certain products that I saw being used in online tutorials and was hoping to purchase locally. A couple of examples: Loctite aerosol glues - Owens Corning 700 series insulation. Back in 2016 I had to drive out to the Canada / US border to pick up some adhesive laser printer labels that I had shipped to Kinek. Looked high and low. The size I was looking for was nowhere to be found in all of Canada. Contacted Avery and all. So sad!

102 W. Service Rd, #7517957
Border Mail Depot - Kinek
Champlain, NY
12919

The list goes on. Have a safe and wonderful weekend! Peter
