Hi all, for anyone who owns one of these routers, the large knob with the two o rings at the bottom that connects to the fine adjustment knob, do you just press that in hard into the top of the fine adjustment knob? Also, the threaded column below the fine adjustment that fits into the base, the bottom part of the thread on mine where it inserts into the base looks like it was grabbed with a pair of pliers and the thread seems crushed on opposite sides, this is not normal is it? I got this router from amazon last year during one of their great sales but haven’t gone to used it until today. Your help with these questions would be greatly appreciated. Sean

Sean, I have that router, and yes you have to give the knob a good push down to seat it. As for the other, there should NOT be plier or vice grip marks any where on the threaded shaft.
I got mine from Amazon last year as well and use it more than all the rest of my routers. Love this big brute.
If a picture of any other help is needed, PM me. Rand

Thanks Rand, looks like I’ll need to order a new threaded column. Sean
