I don't think I understand, because all routers come with a base plate, and to make a router table, you would want to remove the base plate from the router, and use the holes underneath that.

But there was a whole lot of discussion about the very same subject on a router forum, so maybe you will find the answer you need there?

Freud ft2000 switch

You can find a part diagram and parts list on-line. Just enter the model #. The variable speed control module is no longer available. You can bypass the control, and connect the router directly. You will no longer be able to control the speed, or turn off the router. I used a variable 15A control box instead. It will function the same way.
You may want to just replace the router with a new up-to date router, I just purchased a 2 1/2HP Skil router kit tah has a 1/2 chuck, and both a plunger base a flat base, for $100 at a big box store.

I have a Freud 2000E plunge router. It is about 10 years old, but I've never changed the router bit I have in it before. Now I want to remove the bit I have in, but cannot turn the bolt to remove it....

Hello Davis gr,My name is larry I am an auth Freud service tech.
The first thing to do before you attempt any repairs is of course to unplug.In the full plunged position make sure the router is locked in position out of the table on its side.You twist to loosen the bit nut
and tap gently on the side of the bit with a rubber hammer
turning it slowly and it will come loose to remove.
second--If the router will not spring up to its top position it is because
the posts that are spring loaded are dry.again you must remove the router from the table clean the postd with a dry cloth and while still locked lubricate with lite oil using a clean cloth the metel posts.
after that with the same rubber hammer tap the base plate and it will come loose
I hope this is some help

How do I remove the base of a Freud FT2000e router so that I can remove the plunge springs?

Hi There, My name is Larry --I am a FREUD DEALER IN CANADA
To answer your question about the router springs.You must first remove the cap carefully to prevent any damage to the speed module. Under the cap you will find two nuts first lock the base and leave about 2 inches for a socket to go over the nut .Remove normally and be careful when you release the base do it slowly it will spring up fast and hard --

Square base plate and circular template guide missing. where are they available from?

Woodhaven sells all kinds of router accessories, or you can call freud, or you can make them yourself. We always made our own, to fit the job. It is nice to have the original for a template though.

Freud router won't turn on

Check the continuity of the actual switch and second, I would verify that the brushes are connected. Hope this can help or atleast eliminate some possibilities.
Good luck

How does one change from one collet size to another size. My Freud router came with the 1/2" collet installed and I need to change to the 1/4" size supplied with the router to fit a bit I want to use....

I just did this on my black and decker router. You need to unscrew the nut that holds the collet and remove it altogether. Then slip out the collet in there and replace it with the new size. Take care to notice how it goes in when you take the old one out. Then rescrew the nut that holds it in place and tighten. My router had three collets and only one of them works for each size, so if it doesn't tighten properly, it may be the wrong size. Good luck.
