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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty good enough for the money This is my second router the other being another major manufacture. Porter cable name is stuck in my head from years of watching This Old House. Tools work great I have several other pieces for use in my wood shop. No issues at all. Wish it came with a case of some sort to store it in.
