how long before it will be in stock or is there another store that has one by me?

I was just wondering if there was another store close that I could get this from?
Asked by: Brad
I bought mine online and I think that is the only way it can be purchased. I have not seen it in my Home Depot, but it may be available at other stores. However, the online service is pretty amazing. I think I ordered mine online and it was delivered to my door, with no shipping costs in just a few days.

Is the base plate required for use with porter cable dovetail jig included with the 895 router?
Asked by: Vic8
You can use either base plate to use the router on the dovetail jig, it might be easier to the fixed base so the router bit depth stays the same instead of the plunge base.

This this is so much smoother to operate and without problems. Do wish it came with a D handle base though. Nice tool!

I purchased this item for the fine adjustment feature on the fixed base and the vacuum attachment on the plunge base. So far I have only used it to cut dovetails, for which the fine adjustment excelled.

This kit is a very nice way to start out in routing - I bought it to go with a Kreg portable router table (I rate that 5 star for its kind). The motor unit is very smooth and quiet. The collets are sturdy and "c-clipped" to lightly retain the bits even when loosened. I bought this over some other routers because of two bases AND the top-side adjustment for the fixed base on a router table - someday I might afford a real Router Lift. The case for the kit is quite functional. The on-off switch is well designed for me - the ON position has the switch extended from the motor housing, so OFF is an easy and obvious push in. I have used this in and out of the router table and am very happy with my purchase. One critical review mentioned poor quality in the base. I would agree that it is not overbuilt, but I think that it is rather well designed. The same review criticized the the clear plastic base plates. I ordered a pair of Porter Cable black phenolic base plates because of the, and I am glad that I did (about $9 each) - they directly replace the clear ones. For installation on my router table insert plate, I could not find 5/8" long 10-32 flat head screws to properly connect the fixed base to my table insert. You can order them on line from woodworking stores, but I tapped out the holes in the router base to use more common 3/4" long screws. You may not have this issue depending on thickness of your router table insert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good quality product but the instructions could be better I purchased this router to replace a router that was manufactured in the Porter Cable family, that was given to me as a gift over 40 years ago. For a couple of decades, I used that router almost weekly when I worked as a finish carpenter. So I had no reservations on purchasing another Porter Cable product. If this one lasts 40 years like the last one did, I will be 102! But who knows, I may still be playing around in my workshop at that age. One can hope. I would have to say that this is the second Porter Cable product that I have purchase recently (I recently purchased the PC dove tail jig), and the operating instructions are not really that good. I have a suggestion...... A couple of months ago, I purchased a garage door from Home Depot and it came with a DVD that showed you step by step, how to install and adjust the door. I literally put the DVD in my laptop and had it in my garage and used it through out the entire process and I don't think I would have had a successful installation without it. Perhaps Porter Cable could include a DVD with their products?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Router! I have owned a heavy duty Dewalt router for many years and it has served me well however this new Porter Cable router is much easier to use for many hand routing jobs and is easy to operate. It's light weight, easy bit changing and smooth plunge action make it a true pleasure and I'm now looking for more projects requiring a router. I have only owned it for a short time so I can't yet testify to how it holds up over time but so far-so great! I would definitely recommend this router based on my experience to date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Porter Cable Router Great router! Soft start, smooth operation, quiet, strong. Great price too! Only problem I had was that the spindle lock pin sheared off during a bit change. My store didn't carry this model so, Home Depot had me return the product to the store and I bought a new one on line. Only improvement I would like to see done is to make the end of the spindle lock pin larger. The small surface is hard on the finger tip to push and hold with the strong spring it has in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lucky Find Well built, handles well. Incorporates most of the features a woodworker could want. Plenty of power.
