Thanks, I have been to the patent page also, I was hoping some one knew the model number was and a value of the router and its contents a rough amount if any? Thanks once again for your help!!!

Hi, Kelly; welcome!
What a neat find...you sure you want to let it go?
The thing about collectibles is they have no intrinsic value...they're only worth what someone is willing to pay for the item. And THAT is totally a function of demand.
Your challenge is to find the 'someone', and start a dialogue.
Did you put out feelers anywhere?

Hi thanks for your reply, you are correct Re: collectables. I have not put any feelers out just here. Was thinking about posting it for sale around $350.00 here see what happens

I'm not the router expert that you are looking for here Kelly but it is an interesting set there. At first glance I thought that it sure looked like an old Stanley and then sure enough the company was purchased by them. I like the ring attached to the top so the router will sit flat when upside down, the way all routers should be in my opinion.
