Question and Answers

Q:

I own a craftsman router model #315.269210. I cannot adjust the router bit depth or separate the housing from the motor. What should I do to free this up?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the router. I had the same issue with my router. What I had to do is release the lock lever. Then I gently clamped the base into a wood vise so it would not move around while I was working on it.  While I turned the adjusting ring back and forth, I blew between the base and motor with compressed air. This allowed me to blow out all the dust that caused the ring to lock up. Once I could turn the ring, I kept turning it until the motor came out of the top of the base. Then I wiped the inside of the base out and the outside of the motor. After I was done cleaning it, the adjustment worked like new. I hope this method works for you. You may have a difficult time at first because the WD-40 will make the dust stick but once you have it apart you can wipe it off.  

 Please let me know if you need further assistance.

 

Thank you Mark

I realize this is an old thread, but I'm having the same issue, but cannot get the ring to budge, let alone turn it until the motor comes out. I have it clamped to my bench and can't move it. The router is new out of the box, but it is old. Any other suggestions?

Q:

Is there a 3/8 inch collet assembly for Router Model 315269210 ? If so, how can I purchase? 315269210

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

Unfortunately, there is not a 3/8" collet made for this router. The only brands that do make a 3/8" collet are PC and Bosch. However, with the 1/2" collet, you can get an adapter bushing that will allow you to use 3/8" shank bits. Just run an online search for it and you'll will see plenty of options.

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

Parts cost 315269210 Craftsman Router

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
You're right, these are pretty pricey collets. The base price of the parts comes from the manufacturer, and their costs of production. From there, we receive the part and market it for sale. If you run an online search for either part number, you will see they are universally pricey, arount $50-60 each. Is this style one you think you can match us with another? They look somewhat specialized by the picture. Irregardless, the pricing primarily comes from the manufacturer (Ryobi). 
Sorry for the inconvenience and let us know if we can be of any further assistance. Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
