I received a used 315.17480 the other day that was taken from one of the Craftsman router tables. I does not have any kind of base on it. Anybody know where I can order one? I've been looking around the Internet but come up empty.
Router seems to work fine, but I have no information on it at all!
I believe never look a gift router in the bit! I took it anyway.

I have the same Router, and I'm looking for a "locking Lever". Any ideas ?

The actual Arm

Define waht you mean by "locking lever". The actual arm that swings over & locks into the groove in a nut? I think I might have a spare. Do you also need the spring?
The term used in the Craftsman manual was "locking lever". I probably need the spring and the machine screw, also. I'm sure I can find the screw somewhere. I got this router from an old friend of mine, about 20 yrs ago. I never got around to using it, therefore, I never knew it was missing this "Arm". Its the arm that swings towards the shaft and fits into a precise groove, which renders the shaft stationary while one tightens or loosens the collet nut. 1/4" shaft on the router bits.

If I may purchase this from you, I would gladly do so. Or, maybe I have a nice tool or something I could send you. Or, maybe, I might be able to get you a good price in a Freud router bit, because the company I work for is a Freud wholesaler.

Sincerely.

I have two spare bases, one is for 315.17381, the other I'm not sure but it appears to be identical. I also own a 315.17400 & the base is different in that it has a different height adjustment system. Therefore I must conclude that my bases would not fit your 315.17480. Sorry.

I have a spare locking lever,spring & machine screw from a 315.17381. These parts appear identical to the ones on my 315.17400. You are looking for 315.17480 but my quess is that they are all the same & would fit??????? What do you want to do?

Yes, I think I need both. The locking lever swings into the grooove, preventing the shaft from turning while one changes the router bit.:blink:

I to need a part for a craftsman router. 315.275062. I am looking for a fan blade that is sold with the armature. Of course no longer available. You will have to excuse me I do very poorly on the computer and right after I got signed in as a new user last week I had a heart attack. I just hope this does not cause another one. My humor. No sears close any more even called Ryobi. Like others have said nice router just hate to use with no fan. Don't want to let the smoke out!

Hi fly master. About the only successful method of finding parts is searching for sale sites for one that someone is selling that has other issues and you can scavage for parts. Those older Craftsman routers were great tools, but as you have found out, after sale support is pretty small. Not sure what part of the world you're in, but Sears in the US regularly have their routers on sale... might be time to upgrade to a newer one.
