Question about Tools & Hardware - Others
I bought a used Craftsman router/table combo recently. Model 17508. Worked fine, was very pleased with it. When I took off the table recently to change a bit, I noticed that the power switch was held in the on position with a zip-tie (rather than the built-in lock-on button).
I removed it as I cleaned the unit and changed the bit, but when I finished it and plugged in the unit, it will no longer power-on. I completely took apart the unit, checked all the wiring, and everything checks out. Do I have a faulty switch box or could it be something else?
You definitely have a faulty switch. I used to have the same router and had the same problem. I had to take the switch apart and clean it. I got tired of the unreliability and bought a new Milwaukee.
