    Make some calls to your local tool repair companies. They always have old parts and stuff folks never pick up. We had one close nearby and they had a tool sale, with lots of old stuff for cheap.
    Happy hunting.:)

    I have another question, looking for ideas. I rent a shop, @ 20' W X 40' L X 25' H. Since I'm renting don't want to put alot of money into insulating/finishing the whole structure. I want to build a 10' W x 16' L X 10' H insulated workshop structure that can roll straight in and out of the shop. Straight in and straight out. nothing more. Trying to figure out industrial/heavy duty casters? Go kart/ATV tires on modified axles? maybe just iron pipes fabricated with tire rims? Looking for ideas to stimulate the brain. Simple but works!

    Thanks guys. The router info is close, not exact but it gives me a little time frame to work with. The casters are good too, just looking for more ideas. Thanks again.

    What is the problem with it? Brush replacement is a common maintenance item for an old tool and there are generic replacements available, You may not need that particular OEM part if thats your problem.

    Nothing is wrong with it. Initially, I wanted to change out collets to accept a 1/2 ". Found that. But I want to know the year to see if I can get a manual and see what other accessories are available.

    to glennjanie - HUH?

    to vic - I do not know if the router will "qualify" as old by these guys standards but you may want to check out

    http://www.owwm.com/
    Seems they may be having site issues.

    Also check out http://www.forums.woodnet.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php
    and visit the woodworking power tools section. many old time woodworkers there. I'll bet one of them has your router.

    He means 3 inch, schedule 40, polyvinyl chloride

    Otherwise known to plumbers and others as white plastic pipe for drainage or any other neat project you can come up with....like on top of your van to hold stuff.....normally sold in hardware, big box plumbing supply stores.

    There are different schedules of pipe as they get larger, stronger, thicker.

    I would still recommend some plain old recycled galvanized pipe, it's available everywhere.
