Welcome to the forum, Diego. I've had a few of that model and I don't remember ever having the wire. I think it serves no purpose. Take it out and put it in a drawer. Is your Dad a woodworker ?
HelloI've never seen something like that. Do you still have the instruction book? That might be your best bet. I would hesitate to remove if it isn't interfering with the operation of the tool. I notice there is a recess for it, which is why I wouldn't remove it.
BTW, welcome to the Forum.
hi jhonWelcome to the forum, Diego. I've had a few of that model and I don't remember ever having the wire. I think it serves no purpose. Take it out and put it in a drawer. Is your Dad a woodworker ?
I know, my father made me search all over the internet for the function of that part but I didn't find more than the list you show me.Tom - I've had a few of that model and never saw or had the need for that spring wire in any of them. Looking at mine this morning, I can see no reason why it is there. And that one having survived for so many years indicates the base plate was very rarely removed, if at all. Tis indeed a mystery.
I see the spring listed as Part #39 in a few places but no information on what it is for.

I think you win the prize on this one Reuelt. Makes sense now.I think it is a spring (39) for storing "collet wrench" (38) in base when Router not in use..

I can upload the B&D 7614 manual here if OP cannot find it online elsewhere.
