Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy with this purchase I am a professional cabinetmaker and have bought and used several PC 690 routers over the years. I purchased this one 6 months ago, and am extremely disappointed. The fit and finish is very poor. I tried to attach one of my older 690 plunge bases and it is so poorly machined I couldnt get it to fit. I do like the lever lock over the old style screw lock. I have since moved on to Dewalt routers. I recommend anyone considering a fixed base type router to get the Dewalt 618. I have since moved on to the Dewalt and will buy more as the budget allows.
