I just got rejected when I ordered parts for my pin router. Seems that almost all parts are now obsolete. One part I need is a cable, but I think I can get that at a bicycle shop (speak up if you have any ideas).

Another part I need dimensional information. IF anyone has one of these I would be appreciative if you would take the tooth bar that the foot lever ‘hooks’ on and scanned it (preferably against a graph paper background). That and a the general dimensions of the metal.

That machine was made in some collaboration with Onsrud.

Delta has been acquired by Chang Iron and the reputation
for long term parts availability is now in question. Onsrud
is an American company I think and may be able to help
you out.

The CR Onsrud (there is an LMT Onsrud in a similar but more metal oriented business) model 500 inverted router looks like a commercial and improved version (like a home radial arm saw and the one that’s used in a truss shop).

I emailed them with my details to the tech email alias. I figured that the parts department might not have the historical background to go ‘oh yeah…’. Though it may be that there isn’t very many people left from the early 90’s (mine has a date on the manuals of 1993 & 1994—oddly enough, no revision difference between them).

Well, no reply from Onsrud, so I called them.

They said they have never built machines for private label. I looked around (used a different search engine) and found a document from Delta that said it was a jointly built machine.

So, called back, got tech support. They are familiar with the machine, said the upper part was made by them (probably not going to be able to help me with the lever lock plate). Anyhow, got an email address to send my wish list (with pictures/manual) to. Onward and upward!

Have your say...
