Hi,

Your insert plate should have holes to screw the base plate of your router to it. Do you have an insert plate? It's a must. The plate also has leveling screws at the corner so you can have it completely flush with your table top. Most plates fit the most popular routers, like Porter Cable. If your's does not fit, You can drill new holes into it without compromising its integrity.
Most woodworking sites carry different kinds of insert plates. You might also consider a router lift. I have one and consider it indispensable.

Hope this helps, if it does, please place a vote for me. Thanks,

Handie Andie

I have a control remote VIBE and i need the table of code to program my DVD SANYO?? Thank


Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.

Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts.

Please help me find a free owners manual for my porter cable 352vs belt sander


The ServiceNet site has the manual for most Porter Cable power tools here: http://servicenet.portercable.com/ . The 352VS documentation is here: http://servicenet.portercable.com/Products/Detail/352VS . Look in the right hand column for the Instruction Manual; you'll see an option to download a PDF or have the manual sent by email. However, you need to look at the sander and attempt to find the Type number. This will be on the label with the model and serial number. There are 7 different belt sanders that were released with the 352VS model number. Use this number to get the details for your sander. The direct link to the manual for the Type 1 version, today, is http://servicenet.portercable.com/Products/GetDocument?docName=EnA00111.pdf&productId=55856&productType=12187&documentId=32863&translatedFileName=http://documents.dewalt.com/documents/English/Instruction%20Manual/Porter-Cable/EnA00111.pdf .

I hope this helps.

What is the wiring sequence or diagram on a porter cable 8902 router motor? It is variable speed


Go to http://servicenet.portercable.com/ and put in your zip code and call the closest "Factory" service center and ask them to look on the back of the parts list. There's usually a wiring diagram on the back of the parts list.

How do you install a ridgid router to a craftsman router table?


Brenda, They are just saying that if the router is too big, it won't fit. The sub-base is the plastic, usually black, disc on the bottom of the router. This disc is about 6 inches in diameter and about 3/16 inches thick. It is usually held onto the base of the router with three screws. The base is the big aluminum piece about the size of half a loaf of bread that has the handles and into which the router main part (the motor) slides into. For most router tables, you mount a router base (with the sub-base removed) to the underside of the table with screws. The router table becomes a giant upside-down sub-base. If your base fits, and the screw holes line up, you are good to go. However, it is very helpful to have an extra router base (without handles) to leave permanently attached to your router table so that you can easily swap the router between the table and normal use. Good luck!

How to attach a skil router to a craftsman router table


I have done exactly the same thing. Craftsman Router table and Skil Router.

The problem seems to be the plastic foot plate on the router is bigger than the circular frame on the bottom of the Craftsman router table. On my Foot Plate, the holes seem to match up OK.

What I am going to do is take the plastic Foot Plate and router the edge down about 1/8 inch to make it fit in the frame. I have several Foot plates, so this is not a problem to reduce the size of one.

I purchased all of these items at different times from a 2nd hand store and thought (naively) that they should all be some standard to make them all fit. Seems like at least Craftsman has their own set of standards to make things difficult.

I will update this to let you know how it goes.

Manual Craftman professional router table model


I have a Craftsman professional router table, laminated model 26608. I can not find a parts manual for this item. I tried a number of way to find parts for this item. I believe this was made by Bosch. I can not purchase a Router table mounting plate for this item. it measures 7" x 8". with a center hole of 3". also 3" insert rings. Bosch and Sears makes items for a professional router but the center hole is 3 3/4 inches and the plate is a lot larger in width and length. I have gone to Bosch on the internet and came up with a model RA1171. This is a model like the one I purchased; however, they have changed the size of the adapter plate and the center rings. the model no. they show is 29LCN1428.

Having difficulty seting bit depth


I'm not familiar with that brand, but no, normally you need only loosen the lock so the router can move up and down, and either twist it or plunge it into the correct position, lock it, check the depth, repeat.
If it's a plunge router you'll have a depth stop rod that you can use in conjunction with the stop nuts to dial in the correct height of the bit. If it's a conventional router you just have to twist it into the correct height and lock it in place without moving it.
If your router table is fairly light and portable, sometimes its easier to turn the whole thing upside down on a pair of sawhorses to adjust, then flip it back over. Otherwise, you just have to crouch down under there, aim a work light so you can see what you're doing, and adjust away.
Make sure you unplug it first!
Also be aware that you might need a fence for your work to ride against, that you may need to make your cut in successive passes rather than trying to hog off too much at once, and that even routers can grab the work and kick it, so be cautious and feed from right to left as you face the bit, (with the work closest to you).

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