Good afternoon all!
I resonantly started getting into some old wood working tools.
While i was out and about shopping with the wife we went into an
antique store and they had this router on the bottom shelf for $19.00
I thought to my self that was to good of a deal to pass up so i took it to
the counter and when to pay and the bill came out to $15.00!!! I was pumped!

I don’t know any thing about it other then what is in the pictures. I was hoping
some one out there would have a little more info for me. It looks like it is missing a
peace that the router bit would go into maybe? Im not sure.

I would greatly appreciate any help some one could give me

Good luck.

It reminds me of the combo deal where you can put the motor in a jointer

or a router. Nice find.

That’s an old Stanley router. Vintage tool collectors have good things to say about that.

Good luck.
