Ryobi RE600 plunge router binds on the posts

My plunge router wont plunge. Cleaned the posts and it works slightly better, but still binds up. Can anyone recommend a lubricant for the posts to ease this problem?

Are you cleaning the area that contains the springs also and if so I would use something like a dry lubricant so that it won't attract more dust and dirt but we both know that eventually it will. Coat the posts with this and allow to dry and then push up and down on the motor to lube the bushings and you might have to do it again. You can also try a small amount of 3 in 1 oil but use sparingly.

Ryobi manuals

For which model Ryobi product do you need the manual? Many manuals are available here: . Just searching for Router gave a number of options. Since most fixed base or plunge routers will adjust similarly for a given style, you should be able to find some information that applies to your router.

I hope this helps.

I just bought a RYOBI plunge router 1250W. I was trying to install the collet and it was stuck (not even half way in) so i was wondering how can i solve this problem? I mean i am affraid to take it out by...

some of your better routers the collet is fastened in with a screw, flashlight look for a screw partially out. or splines to line up. consider these thoughts and deside if maybe you have it jamed. if so reverse this infraction.

My Dad has a used ryobi router RE600 and there seems to be a switch for maybe speed control? is missing. We would like to find out where to purchase the part. Thanks.

Have a look here. and click on the parts list to open a pdf you can read. It's probably part 21 or 22, the dial or the speed control circuit module. Ryobi is always hard to find parts for. They seem to have released different models in different parts of the world, and their search database leaves a bit to be desired...
Here and here are two links to sources I've had some success with.
Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Cannot remove the fixed base

Are you sure the lock nuts haven't loosened and worked their way down the threaded rod to tighten the router down into it's plunged position? That's a really common thing to happen with plunge routers, but without a model number I can't give you any certain advice.
Try breaking those two nuts loose and spinning them back up the stud and see if that doesn't do it.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

The plunge lock "slips" when the router is used in a table

You can try to adjust the lever that moves the plunge and see if that helps, but a plunge router isn't made for upside use. If you have the option and use the router upside down often, you may want to get a fixed base.
