  • router movement

    Does anyone have a solution to stop my ridgid 1825 router dropping during use on a router table. The locking system does not work well.

    I don't have a RIDGID router but it sounds like the clamp needs adjustment.

    Read the manual and see what it says about this.

        Do you mean the Skill 1825 router?

        If you are using a fixed base and it has a clamping flip lever that is hinged.

        These type locking levers normally have some sort of tensioning adjuster screw
        that tightens and loosens the clamp flip levers tension on the router body.

        Look for this screw normally it is around or under the lever itself.

          Ridgid doesn't make a "1825"; the Ridgid two-base combo is model 2930.

          If that is the tool you are referring to, take a look at your Ridgid 2930 Operator's Manual, Page 20, first paragraph under "Adjustments". Also refer to figure 22 on the same page. There is an adjustment nut for the clamping lever.

              Here's the manual for a "Skil 1825" router ->

              There doesn't seem to be an adjustment on the cam style lever...

              It sounds like the plastic on either the cam or it's mating surface has worn from repeated use...

              My suggestion would be to cut a small strip of flashing or tin the same width as the cam lever and a couple inches long.... feed this in between the cam and the body and then try locking it down.... the added pressure from the mm or so thickness of the tin should give you some added holding pressure. If that's not enough then try adding another strip
