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.

Can this router be used under a table, and if so, can I do micro adjustments from above the table?

If not, any recommendations for table based router appreciated.
Asked by: New2Woodworking
The short answer is yes. I have a Porter Cable router table that is probably 15 years old and this router fits perfectly under it. You just have to take of the face plate and the mounting holes in the router table match the ones in the router. Keep in mind, I am using a new Porter Cable router with a very old Porter Cable router table. But as I said above, it worked perfectly. I can't speak to a non Porter Cable router table. To answer your second question, I cannot do micro adjustments from above on my table but again, mine is pretty old. There could be something out there now that allows that, but I am not familiar with it.

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

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very nice router This router is very nice. Its height adjustment from above table is very easy however it occasionally slips. Haven't done much with the plunge base yet but the little I have used it, it has performed well. The removed the latching mechanism for arbor lick that came on older versions of this model and I do miss that. That's why I deducted one star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Exactly fit the need. Purchased specifically for us with a circle cutting jig that required a plunge base. The plunge based stays attached to the circle jig, used for speaker cut outs, and still have the fixed base for other work. Purchased after reviewing several products. One advantage with Porter Cable is that most jigs and accessories are designed to fit. Home depot had a great price on this unit.
