Dependable and Proven Router!
Customer review from portercable.com logo
I originally purchased this Router 16 years ago, it is a dependable and proven router. I've always preferred D-Handle over regular Fixed Base, it gives better control. This router can handle any handheld task that doesn't require plunging and has plenty of power. I like it so much, I now own 2 of them. This router was also the main router used by Norm Abram on The New Yankee Workshop. Highly recommended.

I have had this router for years and overall has been a good tool in my woodshop but it quit working a couple weeks ago. I was in the middle of a project and had to order another D-handle 691 from Home Depot. Opened up and took it out of the box to check it out and to my disappointment found that the cord from the motor to the handle seemed too short. This was always a problem with my other router when you make height adjustments turning the motor up or down in certain spots the cord was stressed to the max. I measured the cord on my old router at 15 1/4". The new router cord measured at 14"...1 1/4" shorter. When the motor was set 180 degrees, from where the cord comes out of the motor, to where the handle is, the cord didn't set fully into the outlet of the D-handle. I would like to know why Porter Cable would "cut a corner" like this...to save $ on electrical cordage? It would have been nice to have a longer cord by maybe 16 1/4", not shorter. I want this router but find that this, at certain height settings, is not going to work for me...might arc. What a shame; will be returning it to Home Depot tomorrow.

This Router is light weight and easy to use. The RPM is faster on this router which does not burn the wood or the router bits.
