Questions & Answers

Does this router have its own lights in the routing chamber to light current work?

Does this router have its own lights in the routing chamber to light current work?
Asked by: Gib
To my knowledge or the ones I have used there is no lighting included. You could probably attach some but I have never needed any. Great router it has been a work horse in tradeshow shops I worked in.

What is max depth - Looking at the photo it appears the max is 1/2" Can the bit go deeper than that?

What is max depth - Looking at the photo it appears the max is 1/2" Can the bit go deeper than that?
Asked by: Dick
Depends on length of bit and how deep you secure it in the collet. However the motor will rise and lower in the base about 1” 1/2 to 2” inches

1-3/4 HP Router is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice router... Very nice router
Date published: 2019-03-14
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.

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 Great router I found it to be very easy to use, I especially liked the depth adjustment. The cord is plenty long enough for my use.It never bogged down,and the fact it has 2 collet sizes for all my bits,I found it to be the perfect router for my applications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value. Good value at a great price. Lots of power for the size, and easy to handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Workhorse router These routers are the workhorse of the construction industry, and I have had several in my career. I use this in retirement to do furniture and craft, and have two dedicated to router table duty, where they perform tirelessly. I just had one break, and realized I had purchased it, used, fifteen years ago from a cabinet shop, so it earned its retirement the hard way! Will I replace it? Is there any other at this price?
