I just got this Kobalt router and router table combo from Lowe's. Since I am new to using a router, I thought this would be a good place to start. When I started using it to made some rails and stiles, everything worked great, but now there is an issue with the depth adjustment and I am not sure how to fix it.
There is a hex wrench that you can drop into a hole on the table that lines up with the depth adjustment screw so you can raise and lower the bit. When I turn it to lower, it goes down smoothly, but when I turn it to raise, there is a lot of resistance, and when you get a quarter turn done, it skips, then falls down more than it was raised. Does that mean the router or the housing is defective, or is there something that I can adjust to get it to work again?
Here is a video if the description I gave isn't doing it for you.
