Easy

Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Torx bit to remove the cap
The original cord was shorting out
I removed the cap and it was easy to remove the cord from its terminals.
I used a wire nut to connect the Wire, this was a crimped connection from the factory.
I was using my router in a D handle base, my router had an 8' cord that I cut to use on the D handle. This cord after five years started to short out, I bought a cord from a router that came with the D handle base. The new cord was the correct cord needed for my set up.,

Tool Type:
Reciprocating Saw
Parts Used:
Strain Reliever - 901266
Shoe and Bracket Assembly - 891672SV
Repair Difficulty:
Easy
Time Spent Repairing:
15-30 minutes
Tools Used:
Power Drill, Torx head bit
Bought used recip. saw. Pin for shoe bracket assembly was sheared off and strain reliever was age cracked.
Removed the sheared pin form the old shoe bracket assembly. Had to file down the tapered / sheared end of the pin. I had materials for a temporary fix: a short steel threaded rod (both ends), with accommodating threaded caps. Tolerance on the steel rod I used was very good to handle vibrations. Would have most likely worked short term, but it's always best to repair power tools with factory or approved parts.
As far as the strain reliever for the power cord, I
removed the handle / switch casing, removed the old cracked rubber part, disconnected the switch wiring, slid the new part on to the cord, reconnected the wiring and reassembled the handle / switch casing. Job done. Works well.

    Works for multiple tools
    I've used these on multiple tools with minor mods. Cutting the base flange into a square for a Porter Cable Router, shaving the base flange down a bit (thickness wise) for use on a Kett cutter.
