INSTALLING A ROUTER BIT Place router upside down or lay muter on its side with the base resting on the bench. Another option is to remove the motor from the base before installingthe bit. 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". _FT COLLET WRENCH WRENCH _When the template been removed from guide base, has do not use router bits greater than 1 5/8" in diameter as they will not fit through the sub-base, To prevent damage to tool, do not tighten collot without a bit. NOTE: The bit shank and chuck should be clean and free of dust, wood, residue and grease before assembling. REMOVING THE ROUTER BIT 1. Use the shaft and collet chuck wrenches as described earlier, and turn the collet chuck assembly in a counter-clockwise direction. 2. Once the collet chuck assembly is loosened continue to turn the coilet chuck assembly until it pulls the collet fl'se from its taper, and the muter bit can be removed. NOTE: The collet chuck is self-extracting; it is NOT necessary to strike the collet chuck to free the router bit. COLLET CHUCK CARE With the router bit removed, continue to turn the conet chuck counter-clockwise until it is free of the shaft. To assure a firm grip, occasionally blow out the coUet chuck with compressed air, and clean the taper in the armature assembly shaft with a tissue or fine brush. li[IIB 1 ,_ The collet chuck is made up of two component parts as illustrated (Fig. 4); check to see that the collet is properly seated in the collet chuck nut and lightly thread the collet chuck back onto the armature shaft. Replace worn or damaged collet chucks immediately.

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.

After making depth adjustments, re-clamp the motor. The indicator ring may be reset to zero without moving the fine _atment knob, to allow the user to begin tho adjustment from any reference point d_. -12- 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. -13- _l[flll[q DEPTH INDICATOR KNOB \ DEPTHRODFINE ADJUSMENT KNOB TURRET FINE ADJUSTMENT 2. To mlcro-red_ the plunge depth, lower the fine adj_ stop by turning it clockwise by the daslred amount. The plunge base is equipped with a fine adjustment system that allows you to micro adjust the plunge depth of the router bit for supedor routing accuracy. Each complete revolution of the fine adjustment stop adjusts the plunging depth by 1/32", and each of the four indicator marks on the knob represents 1/128". One of the four tick marks is larger than the other to indioate a complete revolution. A reference indicator line is built in to the depth rod. To use the fine adjustment knob, once the depth rod and turret have been set, check the final depth setting and fine-adjust as follows: 1. To micro-Increase the plunge depth, raise the fine adjustment stop by turning it counter-clockwise by the dashed amount.

The router must be raised before such an adjustment can be made. -14- 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. DIAL SETTING SOFT START FEATURE Electronic feedback control minimizes torque twist customary in larger routars by limiting the speed at which motor starts.

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 motor. 5. Feedingtoo slow -- leaves friction bums on work. Feed smoothly and steadily (do not rome).

Always um!_uter bits with the shortest cutting length _oessary to produce the desired cut. _ _i minimize router bit runout and chatter. 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). FEED DIRECTION BOARD GUIDE SECURELY CLAMP BOARD GUIDE -16- 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. Edlfllil_ ATTACHING TEMPLATE GUIDE BUSHING TO FIXED BASE SUB-BASE O 3 Screw Holes ) Template Guide Bushing (soldseparately) ) Router Bit (soldseparately) ATTACHING TEMPLATE GUIDE BUSHING TO PLUNGE BASE 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. -17- TO A'n'ACH TEMPLATE GUIDE BUSHINGS TO ROUTER 1. DISCONNECT ROUTER FROM POWER SUPPLY WHILE ASSEMBLING PARTS 2. Attach the guide bushing directly to the inside of the sub-base as shown In Figs. 17, 18,19. DO NOT remove the sub-base from your muter to attach the guide bushing. 3. Secure the guide bushing to the sub-base with the 3 screws supplied (#10-32 x 5/8 flat head). Shown in Fig. 16. BE SURE the collar section of your guide bushing is turned facing away from the router motor. (See Figs. 17, 18, 19) 4. Open the base clamp lever to release and lower the router motor in router base untilthe collet nut is approximately 1/8-Inch clear of guide bushing. 5. After making adjustment, re-clamp the motor. 6. Insert router bit through guide bushing and into collar at least 1/2-inch, Fig. 19. 7. Tighten collst nut securely. 8. Visually center the cutter with the inside diameter of the guide bushing. NOTE: Adjustments can be made by loosening the screws holding the sub-base to the router, 9. Tighten all screws securely. WARNING: FAILURE TO CENTER CUTTER WITH BUSHINGS OR FAILURE TO FIRMLY TIGHTEN SCREWS AFTER CENTERING COULD CAUSE THE CUTTER TO COME IN CONTACT WITH THE GUIDE BUSHING, RESULTING IN POSSIBLE SERIOUS INJURY. WARNING; _LWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSE_ _i EYE SHIELDS WHEN OPERATIN_ YOUR POWER TOOL. O_ERATION 1. Place your router, with guide bushing attached, a_!_St template. The template will serve as it guide and restrict the movement of your router within the desired area being cut. 2. Grasp your mUter and hold It firmly with both hands. 3. Turn router on and let the motor build to its full speed_ 4. Gradually feed the cutter into workpiece. WARNING: KEEP A FIRM GRIP ON ROUTER WITH BOTH HANDS AT ALL TIMES.

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.
