Did I get taken?
I just bought a router with a table from a guy on Craig's list. It cost me $40 for the two together. I couldn't get a very good look at it until I got home because the lighting at the guys place was low. When I took it apart I found the collet to be split. I wouldn't even know where to find a replacement collet for such an old router. I will say the motor is incredibly strong and the thing weighs a ton. The router is a Dayton Tradesman Model 2Z898, and the table is a Hirsh, the table is crap I will admit. I would like specifically to use half inch shank bits because I am planning to make some rather large mortise and tenon joints and can use the extra stability and bite.
