I was given a Ryobi router set. The number on the "D" handle is R181D. It also has a plunge casing. These are used with routers RE1802M or R1801M. The motor is 10 amp. The depth adjustment is by twisting the outer case. The outer case is extremely difficult to turn and make an adjustment. Is this worth trying to fix and how do I do so. Thanks. Jerry

Disassemble, clean, polish/buff motor and inside of the base. Use paste wax, reassemble and go back to work.

If it has a toggle type tightened it may need to be loosened a turn.
