Old power tool collectors are few and far between, but they are out there. Black and decker was a low-end product and from my experience, their commercial product wasn’t much better.

I’ve got three or 4 of the similar models hanging around the shop. Picked em up at garage sales for 10-20 bucks, and as they only have 1/4” shanks, they do the simpler things pretty well.

If it is truely pristine, and yer lucky, you might find someone willing to pay 40 bucks for it if you advertise enuf and wait long enuf.

My advice is not to be afraid to use it just because it’s old, unless the cord shows signs of insulation failure.

In the world of collectable routers, the Stanley chrome domed routers are substantially scarcer.

If you’ve only got one router in the shop, just park this one til you need a second one, and you will, to be sure.

I’ve lost count of the number of routers in my shop. From time to time I’ve had 3 or 4 adjusted just so, and loathe to change the settings, just grab another router.

That’s about all I gotta say
