My old Craftsman router died on me tonight. My dad bought this new in 1970 and I got it when he passed away in '89. You know how you have those particular tools that just feel good in your hands and are the first thing you pick up? Well this was that one for me. 1HP, 6 amp, 1/4" collet; not exactly a powerhouse router but it was lightweight and dependable and was my choice for just about anything that required free hand routing. This was the first router I ever used and it probably had more sentimental value than anything and it served my dad and I both well for 42 years.
