Hi Priscilla, All the information was provided in the original inquiry. P.S. this is a Craftsman router accessory, perhaps a hand tool but certainly not an appliance.

Thank you for your request for a manual on the 171.2570 dovetail fixture.

I am sorry that I am not able to provide you with a down loadable version of the manual.

However we still have this manual available for purchase from our Sears Parts Direct site.

Dear Sam. Thanks for the reply. In checking for the manual, there is no image of the dovetail figure and so I can't tell if it really is the manual that fits my router. My manual was a single 11x17 sheet of paper printed on two sides (the equivalent of 4 pages). So I'm not so sure that the manual listed is the right one --- $9.00 plus sounds like a lot for four pages. Isn't there a PDF version of the manual available?

Thank you for the update Al. This is the correct manual because I used the complete model number of the dovetail unit. I am sorry that it is not on line for you to download but because of its age and when it was made the system does not load images that old unless we specifically request it to be. This process can take some time to accomplish and I do not think that you want to wait that long. In the link below I included at image of the parts page from Sears Parts Direct. Sam A.

Thank you Adam! I wouldn't have thought it would have been on that site. But I am glad that you found it there. I look for a lot of other old Craftsman tools on that site. Thank you again. Sam A.

Q:

How do I attach a Dovetail kit on my router?

A:

Most Craftsman dovetail kits will fit any Craftsman router. The base must be removed from the router to install the kit. I have included a link to the owners manual for this model number; Owners manual

Also, I am including a link to the Craftsman 6 pc. Plunge Sub-Base Combo that will work for almost any application; Plunge Sub-Base Combo

If you require further assistance please resubmit question with more details. I will be looking forward to helping you again in the near future.
