Keeping the router clamp tight enough to use the Craftsman router working safely is important. You may find something in the owner manual that may be helpful while waiting on additional information from an expert.

Thank you for your question and also for the great pictures of the router clamp mechanism. Please make sure that there is not sawdust around the motor housing when you close the clamp. I know that whole area will have lots of saw dust in the area. Can you tell if the gap in the clamp is touching or is there still a gap to tighten further?

I am not sure how you can hold that screw head while you tighten the nut on the clamp handle.

I have not gotten and answer back yet from my manufacture contact.

I guess in the mean time I would try to see if you can wedge the head of the screw while trying to turn the nut. You might be able to get needle nose pliers around the screw head.

I will let you know as soon and the manufacturer contacts me with a solution.
