Two of these in succession have burned out on me in three years. I got the first replaced on warranty but now I'm out a tool. It's the electronics that regulate speed and soft-start that burns up, and of course that part isn't available. I build furniture as a hobby, so I use this tool, but only on projects from time to time. It looks like all the current Craftsman routers have soft start and some variable speed, so I'd expect the same type of controllers - and burn out - on all of them.
