Question on the Dewalt DW621
I have a Dewalt DW621 type 1 plunge router. I bought it in 1999 and used it some back then, but haven't used it in quite a few years. Recently I got it out to make a few Christmas presents and am having a problem. When I turn it on, it will briefly start then quit, forcing me to turn it off then on again repeatedly, in order to get it to finally run. It has a soft start feature controlled by an electronic module, which I suspect is the problem. I went to Dewalt's website, the module costs $64.49 and is back ordered, which makes me suspect a high failure rate. I was very happy with the router before this problem.
Here are my questions:
Does anyone else have any knowledge or experience with this model?
Considering the possible high failure rate for the module, would I be better off to replace the module, or save my money and buy a different plunge router, and if so, do you have any good recommendations?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
