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.

What hp router is best to make cabinet raised doors


I used to use a Ryobi 2.5 hp and it worked fine but if you are concerned go higher hp. It's probably more important that the router is a variable speed model. The bigger the size of cutter required for raised panel doors the more torque and revs are produced. You need to ensure starting on slowest speed and adjust up to speed required. Speed should be based on size of cutter and to me is set by sound( a nice hum, not screaming) and vibration( NO VIBRATION)! The cut needs to be done in several passes, maintaining constant feed speed,( don't burn your expensive cutter) allowing cutter and machine to do work maintaining the hum and no vibration. And of course set your guards etc!! If this is on going work for you perhaps look into a spindle moulder with attachment to take router cutters

How to assemble the unit


Hi irish,

Welcome to fixya!

You didn't give your model number...

Copy and paste this web address into your browser: http://www.ryobitools.com/catalog/power_tools/router_rotary/RE180PL

I took a guess that this might be your router. On the left side, under the pic, you'll see a menu called "operator's manual". click on the 2nd one for your manual.
If this is not the model you have, search their site. They should have it.

Hope this helps. Please place a vote for me. Thanks,

Handie Andie

I need to find out how to get my craftsman router to plunge when the plunge adapter is installed on the router. I've lost my owners manual and can't remember how it works. Model 320.17543


To make sure that you have everything assembled correctly it would be better if you downloaded the free manual from

You may have to register, but this is a free service and well worth it.

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. takertim@hotmail.com


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.

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.
