My father had a old Stanley Router. I don't think they make anymore. It was silver in colour and metal. Unfortunatley I broke it. 2 Questions. Can I get it replace. If not... What would be a good equivalent to replace it.
Your stanly was probably closest to the Porter-Cable 0100, but a 690 series router would probably be a good replacement.
When you say bottom plate, was it plastic or metal? You can make your own sub base or might be able to find a universal sub base to fix it. As for the wooden knobs, Hardwood balls, or repairing the broken one with epoxy might work.
Stanley sold this line of business about 20 years ago to Bosch. Look at Bosch line of what they have today. Bosch routers are good but there are other good names there too. I, for example, like Hitachi.
