I just went out and looked at mine again. The clamp that holds the cable to the carriage(? the piece the router sits on?) If you move the carriage up or down the cable, will it not shorten the travel of said carriage? I dunno, only thing I can think of.

I might try it... who knows? Going to have lots of time this year as plant will be down for 3 months starting mid February.

Hey Brian Gio again. Pictures looks good. Machine looks brand new. How much would you be willing to sell it for in such good condition.

Just caught the title of this thread, so I haven't read thru all the comments, but there is a new Craftsman Router Crafter listed of Edmonton Kijiji site listed for $200.00

see kijiji.ca/v-tool-other/edmonton/spindal-maker/1044913409

Hope this helps.

There is a still sometimes active thread on Router Turning, started by dick in ia http:www.routerforums.com/jigs-fixtures/32205-router-turning.html that describes construction of ultimately two different router turning apparati both related to the used to be Shopnotes, now Woodsmith plans.

HI Geo,
If you are still searching for a Sears router crafter there are several currently listed on e-Bay. Of the two model numbers ....250 and ...251, the 251 uses aluminum compnents in place of plastic and I believe it is more duarable. Make sure that the unit is complete with all the components, as used ones sometimes are being sold incomplete. Also, don't be alarmed if you need to modify (adjust) pieces to fit together. I have the ...251 model.

Gio,
I live in the USA near Akron, OH. I have a perfect -251 Sears router crafter setup that you seek, which is complete with both drive "headstocks" (the truncated cone style and the 3 prick pin style. My personal preference is for the 3 pin type because I can make longer length work pieces. I have several of the Sears 1hp routers that bolt right up to the mounting platform, router bits, all manuals, and advertising literature. If you are interested in purchasing the unit, let's talk, as I will be selling it soon. I will take photos of the equipment and also furniture that has spiral half spindles, I made on the equipment, if you are a serious shopper.
