Default M00sie1945

I have 2 Hitachi M12V routers that I am parting out. They were both running until the speed controls crapped out. Both plunge bases & a few other small parts are gone.

I also have a Craftsman 315.17381 router with a defective armature that I am parting out. I paid $15 for it to get the spindle lock ring for my router. The rest of parts are like new.

Private message me to see if any parts you may be interested in are still available. I only ask that whoever asks for parts be willing to reimburse me for shipping from Winnipeg. Paul

I have one that is still running perfectly Paul. Let me think on what would be good to have for spare parts and I'll get back to you. From there to BC is about as cheap as shipping is going to be up here. Just curious though why you didn't consider trying to bypass the speed controls?

Any articles I found were not very encouraging on the idea of bypassing, resulting in another high speed router. I already have a TR12. Most of the work I do with my other M12Vs leans to needing the speed control for the size bits I use. I was able to locate 2 other M12Vs,one in Colorado & the 2nd here in Winnipeg.I'm getting to the age where I really don't need more routers. The 2 bases went to fellows who had the misfortune of dropping their routers. I really like Hitachi routers. Their big weaknesses are the speed controls & their low resistance to dropping.

I agree with you on Hitachi routers. I have the M12V, a 12V2, and a VC fixed base. The M12V2 is one of the best designed table routers there is in my opinion. That's why I don't use the old 12V much anymore. Once I got the V2 the V got retired from table routing.
