Many excellent features that makes this router top of the line. Fine depth settings, Spindle lock, single wrench for bit changes, you can use 1/4 in. and 1/2 in. shank bits, variable speed, I especially love the smooth start and stop. It gradually picks up speed instead of that instant jolt. What I didn't like- it says Fixed Base Router "Kit". What kit? Everything is extra. Like the Template Guide, Edge Guide, Roller guide. I also bought another router, different brand, but it came with all those guides included. So why is Porter-Cable using the word "Kit" when this is a bare bone router. But I still love this router.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best price I found for the 890 model. I attached the router to a cabinet I made. It works great. The only reason I didnot rate a 5 star was due to the awkwardness of the spindle locking button. You have to reach around the router to lock the spindle. If you mounted the router 180 deg for easy access to the spindle lock, that puts the above table adjustment holes under the fence. I prefer access for the above table adjustments which is why I went with this model in the first place.

I had a 6902 motor in my CNC, but I wanted a (somewhat) variable speed- This model fit's the swap out fairly well. It's not as loud, has a soft start- which is very nice in comparison, especially when hand-held. The arbor lock doohickey seems like an add-on design mishap, but it works ok. I'm used to double wrenching, so not a big deal. I just wish it was more integral to the design, and it locked in a tighter degree of rotation. (When lock is engaged, there is still a 1/6 turn of runout) Note: if you are buying this for a CNC, you'll need to remove the rack 'n pinion gear. 2 screws, easy peasy.

I am still in the process of setting them up. One is installed in a horizontal table. Because of its ease of removing the motor unit from the base, and ease of adjustment, and its ability to work at various speeds, this is the perfect router for this table. The other router is for a standard router table. It is held underneath by a manual lift unit. The base is not used for this. Again the power and variable speed will make this a perfect router for this application. The lower speed will be critical for larger router bits.

It stopped working within the first four hours. Went online to find a service center and under the search for a service center near you nothing popped up near my Orange County zip. I tried California and still no service centers. Tried the United States and the online prompt says there are not service centers in the search area. How disappointing. I called the home depot store in my area and they told me they do not handle custody on internet purchases.

The local Home Depot did not stock item and suggested I call Porter Cable since it was an online order. While I had to wait on hold for an extended period with Porter Cable warranty department, they are going to send out a new case that I should have in 7-10 days. Customer service representative Keloni was very helpful, and I am pleased that this issue has been resolved to my satisfaction.

It is not too heavy, the soft start makes working by hand easier and it has more than enough power for use in the router table. This will be a nice compliment to my set of routers, filling a niche where I needed more power, but didn't want to spend over $300 for a heavy 3 HP machine.

The variable speed is great especially for large bits cutting oak. I purchased two of these. One for my horizontal router table and the other for a standard router table with manual lift. I am still awaiting some pieces to finish hooking up these routers to their respective tables.
