Personal
Safety
Stay alert, watch what you are doing and
use common sense when operating a power
tool. Do not use tool while tired or under the
influence of drugs, alcohol, or medication.
moment of inattention while operating power
tools may result in serious personal injury.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing
or jewelry. Contain long hair. Keep your hair,
clothing, and gloves away from moving
parts. Loose clothes, jewelry, or long hair can
be caught in moving parts. Keep handles dry,
clean and free from oil and grease.
Avoid accidental starting. Be sure switch is
"OFF" before plugging in. Carrying tools with
your finger on the switch or plugging in tools
that have the switch "ON" invites accidents.
Keep by-standers,
children, and visitors
away while operating
a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
Electrical
Safet_
Double Insulated tools are sqmpped with a
polarized plug (one blade is wider than the
other.) This plug will fit in a polarized outlet
only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in
the outlet, reverse the plug. If It still does not
fIt, contact a qualified electrician to install a
polarized outlet. Do not cha .n_e the plug in
any way. Double Insulation LOJeliminates the
need for the three wire grounded power
cord and grounded power supply system.
Before plugging In the tool, be certain the
outlet voltage supplied is within the voltage
marked on the nameplate. Do not use "AC
only" rated tools with a DC power supply.
Avoid body contact with grounded surfaces
such as pipes, radiators,
ranges and
refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of
electric shock if your body is grounded. If
operating the power tool in damp locations is
unavoidable, a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter
must be used to supply the power to your tool,
Electrician's rubber gloves and footwear will
further enhance your personal safety.
Don't expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock,
Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord
to carry the tools or pull the plug from an
outlet. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp
edges or moving parts. Replace damaged
cords Immediately.
Damaged cords increase
the risk of electdc shock.
When operating a power tool outside, use an
outdoor extension cord marked "W-A" or
"W." These cords are rated for outdoor use and

Remove adjusting keys or wrenches before
turning the tool "ON". A wrench or a key that
is left attached to a rotating part of the tool may
result in personal injury.Do not overreach.
Keep proper footing and balance at all
times. Proper footing and balance enables
better control of the tool in unexpected
situations,
Use safety equipment. Always wear eye
protection. Dust mask, non-skid safety
shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection must be
used for appropdate conditions.
Tool Use and Care
use clamps or other practical way to secure
and support the workpiece
to a stable
platform. Holding the work by hand or against
your body Is unstable and may lead to loss of
control.
Do not force tool. Use the correct tool for
your applicstlon. The correct tool will do the
job better and safer at the rate for which it is
designed.
Do not use tool if switch does not turn it
"ON" or "OFF". Any tool that cannot be
controlled with the switch is dangerous and
must be repaired.
Disconnect the plug/tom the power source
before making any adjustments, changing
accessories,
or storing the tool. Such
preventive safety measures reduce the Hsk of
starting the tool accidentally.
Store Idle tools out of reach of children and
other untrained persons. Tools are dangerous
in the hands of untrained users.
Maintain tools with cere_ Keep cutting tools
sharp and clean. Prope_ maintained tools,

1. Remove the chip shield (or flip up if plunge
bass is attached).
2. Hold the armature shaft in place with the
shaft wrench (Fig. 3)
3. Next, use the collet wrench to loosen the
collet chuck assembly in counter-clockwise
direction (viewed from under the router).
4. Insert the shank of the router bit into the
collet chuck assembly as far as it will go,
then beck the shank out until the cuttem are
approximately 1/8 = to 1/4" away from the
collet nut face.
5. With the router bit inserted and the shaft
wrench holding the armature shaft, use the
collet wrench to firmly tighten the collar
chuck assembly in a clockwise direction
(viewed from under the router). To ensure
proper gripping of the router bit and
minimize run-out, the shank of the router bit
must be inserted at least 5/8".

work, decorative edges and many types of
special carving.
DEPTH ADJUSTMENI"
WITH FIXED B/_E
Your router is equipped with a true micrometer
type fine adjustment meshanlsm, which can be
used in any position and provides precise
adjustment of the router bit position for
unmatched accuracy. When the tool is lowered
to the approximate position desired, this device
may be adjusted to preclse!y set the final bit
position.
Your router also features three horizontal
notches on both sides of the motor housing for
coarse adjustments. The notches are spaced
1/2" apart which allows you to quickly lower or
raise the tool depth in three 1/2" Increments,
approximately 12.7 mm, by simply depressing
the coarse adjustment release lever.
TO ADJUST DEPTH
NOTE: All depth adjustments must be made
with the base clamp lever released.
1. Hold the tool In a horizontal posttlonwith the
base clamp lever facing you.
2. Open the base clamp laver to release the
motor.

TO CLAMP MOTOR
When final coarse and fine adjustments have
been made, fasten the base clamp lever to
secure adjustments. (if additional clamping
force is desired: using a 10 mm wrench, rotate
clamp nut clockwise SLIGHTLY (1/8 turn or
lees), then test clamp. Do not over-tighten.)
DEPTH ADJUSTMENT
WITH PLUNGE BASE
PLUNGING ACTION
The
plunge
feature
simplifies
depth
adjustments and will allow the cutting bit to
easily and accurately enter the workpiece. To
lower, push plunge lock lever to the left, apply
downward pressure until you reach desired
depth, and release pressure on lever to lock
(Fig. 12). The plunge lock lever is spring loaded
and returns automatically
to the locked
position. To raise the router, push plunge lock
lever to the left, release pressure on router and
the router will automatically retract the bit from
the workpiece. It is advisable to retract the bit
whenever it is not engaged In workplace.
DEPTH ROD AND TURRET
The depth rod and the depth stop turret are
used to control cutting depth as follows:
1. With the bit installed, gently lower the motor
until the tip of the router bit just contacts the
level surface the router Is sitting on. This is
the "zero" position, from which further depth
adjustments can be accurately made.
2. To set a desired depth of cut, rotate depth
stop turret until the lowest step is aligned
with the depth rod. Loosen depth indicator
knob and lower the depth rod until it contacts
the lowest step of the turret. Slide the depth
Indicator until the red line Indicates zero on
the depth scale, indicating the point at which
the bit just contacts the work (Fig. 12).
3. To set a desired cutting depth, slide the
depth rod up until the red depth indicator line
attains the desired cutting depth, and secure
the rod in position by firmly tightening the
depth indicator knob.
4.The desired depth of cut may now be
achieved by plunging the router until the
depth rod contacts the selected stop on the
turret.
DEEP CUTS
For deeper cuts, make several progressively
deeper cuts by starting with the highest step on
the depth turret, and after each out, rotate the
depth turret to progressively lower steps as
desired, until the final depth (lowest step or flat)
is reached. Steps progress by 1/8" increments.
To be certain that your depth settings are as
desired, you may want to make test cuts in
scrap matsdal before beginning work.

ELECTRONIC VARIABLE SPEED CONTROL
ROCKER uON/OFF" SWITCH
Your tool can be turned "ON" or "OFF" by the
rocker switch located on the motor housing.
One side of the switch is marked "1" for "ON",
and the other side of switch is marked "O" for
"OFF". Also the edge of switch displays red
when switch is in the "ON" position.
TO TURN THE TOOL uON": Push the side of
the switch marked "r'.
TO TURN THE TOOL "OFF": Push the side of
the switch marked "O".
Always hold the router off the work when
turning the switch on or off. Contact the
work with the router after the router has
reached full speed, and remove it from the
work before turning the switch off. Operating in
this manner will prolong switch and motor life
and will greatly increase the quality of your work.
The electronic speed control feature allows
motor speed to be matched to cutter size and
material hardness for improved finish, extended
bit life, and higher performance.
Speed
changes are achieved by rotating Control Dial
RIGHT to increase speed, LEFT to decrease as
indicated on housing. Speed may be changed
while tool is on. The reference numbers on
the dial facilitate re-setting control to desired
speed.
The speed chart indicates the relationship
between
settings and application,
exact
settings are determined by operator experience
and preference. The bit manufacturer may also
have a speed recommendation.

accordingly.Therefore,the most efficientcut
is made by feeding the routerso that the bit
turns into the work, not away. Figure 14
showsproperfeed for variouscuts. How fast
you feed depends on the hardness of the
material and the size of the cut. For some
materials,it is best to make severalcuts of
increasingdepth.
If the router is hardto control,heats up, runs
very slowly or leaves an imperfect cut,
considerthesecauses:
1. Wrongdirectionof feed -- hardto control.
2. Feedingtoo fast -- overloedsmotor.
3. Dullbit -- overloadsmotor.
4. CUtis too la_e for one pass -- overloads

GUIDING THE ROUTER
The router can be guided through the work
in any of several ways. The method you use
depends, of course, on the demands of the
particular job and on convanience.
For routing operations such as grooving or
dadoing, it is often necessary to guide the
tool in a line parallel to a straight edge. One
method of obtaining a straight cut is to
securely clamp a board or other straightedge
to the work surface, and guide the edge of
the router sub-base along this path (Fig. 15).

CENTERING
THE
SUB-BASE
AND
TEMPLATE GUIDE BUSHINGS
Your router's sub-base is precisely centered
at the factory. This positions the bit at the
center of the sub-base and the template guide
bushings (sold separately). This allows you to
closely follow jigs, such as straight guides,
templates and dovetatl fixtures without having
the bit "walking off" from the intended cut line
for any reason, including the orientation of the
router's handles.
In the event that the sub-base or template
guide bushings need to be adjusted, follow
these steps:
1. Position the sub-base so the screw holes
are over the matching set of threaded
holes in the base.
2. Insert the screws through the sub-base and
tighten them until they are snug, but still
allow the sub-base to move.
3. If a template guide bushing (sold separately)
is being used, (Fig. 16) attach it
as described In Figs 17 and 18.
4. Adjust the sub-base until the sub-base or
template guk:lebushing is centered around
the bit as shown In Fig 19.

TEMPLATE GUIDE BUSHINGS
Your router's sub-bases are ready to accept
the Craftsman Router Template Guide Bushing
Set (9-25082), sold separately.
Template guides are used with a number of
special aoseesodes, such as dovetail fixtures
and hinge templates. In addition, special
templates are easily prepared for cutting
repeated patterns, special designs, inlays,
and other applications. A template pattern
can be
made of plywood, hardboard, metal or even
plastic, and the design can be cut with e router,
jigsaw, or other suitable cutting tool.
Remember that the pattern will have to be
made to compensate for the distance between
the router bit and the template guide
(the "offset"), as the final workplace will differ in
size from the template pattern by that amount,
due to the bit position.

USE IN ROUTER TABLE
Your router can also be used in a router table.
The fixed base is dasigned to allow easy depth
adjustment in a table. The plunge base is not
recommended for use in a router table because
it may cause damage to the plunge router base.
To install the fixed base in a table (sea Fig. 20),
simply remove the sub-base and attach the base
using three #10-32 fiat head machine screws
(not included). The length will depend on the
thickness of your router table or router table
mounting plate. Follow the ddlllng and ir_tallatlon
instructions that were Included with the router
table. In order to use the over table adjustment
feature on your router, you will also need to ddll
a hole in the router table or mounting plate to
allow access to the fine depth adjustment rod.
The depth can be adjusted over a 7/8-in. range
from above the table using the over-table
adjustment wrench (included).
When installinga router bit be sure that the
coarse adjustment level is near the lowest
point of the depth Indicator ring.
Also be sure the muter bit is installed at the
proper height for the cut to be made,
(the height of the first cut, ff multiple passes
are going to be made).
ALWAYS re-clamp the motor in the base
BEFORE turning on the motor and routing.
For complete instructions on the operation
of a muter in a router table, refer to the
instructions that come with the router table.
FEEDING THE WORKPIECE
ON A ROUTER TABLE
Always use your router table's fence or starter
pin and the appropriate guard end follow the
router table's instruction manual. ALWAYS feed
the workpiece from right to left across the front
of the bit.
Whenever possible, when usingthe fence, use
a push stick to push the workpleoe, especially
when working with narrow plecas.
