WARNING"
Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities
contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these
chemicals are:
• lead from lead-based paints,
• crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
• arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure
to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust
masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.

WARNING: To avoid serious personal injury, do
not attempt to use this product until you read
thoroughly and understand completely the
operator's manual. Save this operator's manual
and review frequently for continuing safe operation
and instructing others who may use this product.
WARNING:
The operation of any power tool can result in foreign objects being thrown into your eyes,
which can result in severe eye damage. Before beginning power tool operation, always wear
safety goggles or safety glasses with side shields and a full face shield when needed. We
recommend Wide Vision Safety Mask for use over eyeglasses or standard safety glasses with
side shields. Always use eye protection which is marked to comply with ANSI Z87.1.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
DOUBLE
INSULATION
Double insulation is a concept in safety in electric power
tools, which eliminates the need for the usual three-wire
grounded power cord. All exposed metal parts are
isolated from the internal metal motor components with
protecting insulation. Double insulated tools do not need
to be grounded.
,_
WARNING:
The double insulated system is
intended to protect the user from shock resulting
from a break in the tool's internal insulation. Observe
all normal safety precautions to avoid electrical
shock.
NOTE: Servicing of a tool with double insulation requires
extreme care and knowledge of the system and should
be performed only by a qualified service technician. For
service, we suggest you return the tool to your nearest
authorized service center for repair. Always use original
factory replacement parts when servicing.
ELECTRICAL
CONNECTION
This tool has a precision-built electric motor. It should be
connected to a power supply that is 120 volts, 60 Hz,
AC only (normal household current). Do not operate
this tool on direct current (DC). A substantial voltage drop
will cause a loss of power and the motor will overheat. If
your tool does not operate when plugged into an outlet,
double-check the power supply.
EXTENSION
CORDS
When using a power tool at a considerable distance from
a power source, be sure to use an extension cord that has
the capacity to handle the current the tool will draw. An
undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting
in overheating and loss of power. Use the chart to determine the minimum wire size required in an extension cord.
Only round jacketed cords listed by Underwriter's Laboratories (UL) should be used.
When working outdoors with a tool, use an extension
cord that is designed for outside use. This type of cord is
designated with "WA" on the cord's jacket.
Before using any extension cord, inspect it for loose or
exposed wires and cut or worn insulation.

WARNING:
Keep the extension cord clear of the
working area. Position the cord so that it will not get
caught on lumber, tools or other obstructions while
you are working with a power tool. Failure to do so
can result in serious personal injury.
A
WARNING:
Check extension cords before each
use. If damaged replace immediately. Never use tool
with a damaged cord since touching the damaged
area could cause electrical shock resulting in serious
injury.

CUTTER
GUARD
ASSEMBLY
The cutter guard assembly provides a barrier to protect
the operator from contact with the cutter and is adjustable
for all types of cuts and materials. The cutter guard also
doubles as a vacuum attachment. You can insert a
standard shop vacuum into the top of the clear plastic
cutter guard to keep dust to a minimum.
FENCE ASSEMBLY
The fence assembly provides an adjustable surface to
support and guide the work.
MITER GAUGE
A miter gauge is used for mitered routing and to help
support wider pieces.
STARTING
PIN
When you are unable to use the fence for a guide because
the workpiece is odd-shaped or too small, use the starting pin for a guide. Only use piloted cutters when using
the starting pin. Remove the fence and miter gauge when
using the starting pin.
SWITCH
This product is equipped with a power switch that has a
built-in locking feature. This feature is intended to prevent
unauthorized and possible hazardous use by children and
others. If you remove the key during operation, you can
turn the switch off, but you may not turn it on again until
you replace the key.
THROAT
PLATES
Five throat plates are included with the router table. The
throat plate provides a stable support surface around the
cutter and prevents objects from falling through the throat
and damaging the spindle.
UNDERTABLE
AND REAR SAFETY
GUARDS
The undertable guard and rear safety guard ensure that
your hand, loose clothing, and other objects do not come
in contact with the cutter or collet during operation.

WARNING:
Failure to unplug the router and router
table could result in accidental starting causing
serious injury.

WARNING:
When servicing, use only identical
Craftsman replacement parts. Use of any other parts
may create a hazard or cause product damage.
_k
WARNING:
Always wear safety goggles or safety
glasses with side shields during power tool operation
or when blowing dust. If operation is dusty, also wear
a dust mask.
GENERAL
Electric tools used on fiberglass material, wallboard,
spackling compounds, or plaster are subject to accelerated wear and possible premature failure because the
fiberglass chips and grindings are highly abrasive to bearings, brushes, commutators, etc. Consequently, we do not
recommended using this tool for extended work on these
types of materials. However, if you do work with any of
these materials, it is extremely important to clean the tool
using compressed air.
MAINTENANCE
LUBRICATION
Avoid using solvents when cleaning plastic parts. Most
plastics are susceptible to damage from various types of
commercial solvents and may be damaged by their use.
Use clean cloths to remove dirt, dust, oil, grease, etc.
All of the bearings in this tool are lubricated with a sufficient amount of high grade lubricant for the life of the unit
under normal operating conditions. Therefore, no further
lubrication is required.
_k
Only the parts shown on the parts list are intended to be
repaired or replaced by the customer. All other parts
should be replaced at a Sears Service Center.
WARNING:
Do not at any time let brake fluids,
gasoline, petroleum-based products, penetrating
oils, etc., come in contact with plastic parts.
Chemicals can damage, weaken or destroy plastic
which may result in serious personal injury.
