Router Table is Down

I was using the router table when the bit started wobbling. I turned it off, tightened it in the collet, turned it back on, and the router sparked in the motor coils and made a grinding noise. It’s unplugged and has a sign on it “DOWN FOR MAINTENANCE”

Have you tried rebooting it? LOL. I was also working on a joke using the word “bearing” in it, but got busy. :drum: :drum: :drum: I’ll be here all week…try the veal.

It’s been repaired. The top bearing slipped off of the armature, causing it to wobble like a top. This, in turn, broke the brushes, but those were still salvageable. Everything was put back in place, tightened up, and tested. Works like a charm!
