Hi Georges.

It may depend on whether you can do the repairs or if it has to be sent to the shop. I'd get a price for the parts needing replaced, then compare that to the cost of a new router. And if it would have to go into the shop for repairs, find an authorized B&D repair shop and find out what they charge. In the long run, it might be less expensive to go ahead and buy new.

Repair or Replace

A lot depends on how many parts you have to replace. If you can do the work to repair it yourself, it would probably be worth repairing. There are several places on line that have replacement parts. If you have to have it repaired by someone else, you would be better off purchasing a new one. What is your gut feeling? Do you want a new router or are you attached to this one?

Maybe a check of Craig's List or EBay will find you another of the same model cheaply - so parts can be taken from one or another. Anything other than an exact replacement may require you to make modifications to your router table, as well. Good luck,

Thank you every one , after a studdy of your answers and a price search of my own , I concluded that it was best to buy a new one.
I paid $65 for a Black & Decker model RP 250 Plunge router .
I could repair myself "maybe" Thank you GussNemo,Big Steve, Walowan , I do not intend to trow it away. I will repair it later or sell it for parts ( the good parts that is )
Thank you Randyruth. Thank you OPG3

Happy woodworking
GeorgesG
