Hi All,

This is the top of my Porter Cable Model 1002 router. Can anyone tell me what the set screw in the picture is for? There are two of them; one is on the opposite side. They are hex headed. I have looked on two or three part lists and haven’t seen it listed.

I am pretty sure they are the set screws to secure the brush holders, but the parts diagram either incorrectly shows them under instead of over the holders, or the position got changed at some point and was not reflected in the diagram:

#205 in the above diagram is the set screw – Porter Cable part #802388
