Thanks for the link. There is a different lock lever for that router, this one has a knob that pinches the base/body close around the motor unit to hold the depth. I am not sure that fix would help, but thanks anyway.

Thank you for your question on the depth adjustment on the router.

You have a couple of choices.

You can either clean the wax off or you can do what I did to mine.

If the pinch clamp is meeting in center behind the bolt you may not be able to get it tight enough to hold the motor during the vibration when the motor is running.

Where the pinch clamp comes together I removed a little material so the pinch clamp can pinch the motor housing tighter. This is where the knob and bolt goes through the housing. All it will take is a flat file to remove a little material right behind the bolt at the center point.

See if this will work for you.

Please let me know what you found out.

Sam A.
