Does this model have a designed table to use?

Asked by Twostepper June 22, 2020

Answers

I've used in a couple of Rockler tables, a JESSEM table and a custom one. Only real potential thing is that some tables require an insert, but none of mine have yet.

If you have a Porter Cable router base already, then the guide bushings will fit. If you have a router by another manufacturer, chances are that the guide bushings will fit because PC is the standard in the industry.

Could be used in some router table applications as is but it is very limited in fine adjustment. If you are building your own table a lift assembly such as Jessum or rockler or other router lift although kind of expensive is a much better and more versatile choice and no need to buy separate plate as it is all one assembly. Do some research on costs and features. Mine works like a dream mounted in a Jessum Masterlift II router lift. It is mostly a matter of personal choice and budget. There are a lot of Just plates out there but you will have to research those as well to find what routers they will fit and what specs are.

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.

Router has adequate HP for all work I would do in my workshop. 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.

I purchased two of these routers. 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.

This is the second one i have owned, the first failed after about 1300 hours of heavy use in a CNC machine. The first one lasted longer than i expected and the new one is performing at the same level so far. Excellent value for the money

Well thought out and a really nice balanced machine for ease of use. Of course, I like the power. Yes the less powerful work, it just requires several passes which could result in a mistake.

Still in test mode
Customer review from portercable.com logo
I have a handful of PC older routers all made in the U.S.A. when I purchased them back in the 80’s like my first model100, then 691DH, 690, 7539, and 7518, All are top notch and still running and performing flawlessly, I just picked up the 895PK today to use in my horizontal router table but of yet to run a single board foot through its paces but overall appears to be what I’d expect of today’s composite material made power tools, somewhat cheesy in only the plastic components but only in appearances, the first impressions are good quality along with the well machined aluminum core of the motor housing and bases that came with this kit, the test I performed of just turning on the motor and running the speed control through its speed ranges seemed good with its soft start, lower noise emissions than earlier models, low vibrations and overall comfort Help me believe it will be a good performing tool. I will re-visit the review section after a few months of use to give a better response to what I like or dislike so I initially give this a 4 star review and recommend it as of now to anyone needing a higher horsepower rated router to spin up larger cutters in a well manageable hand hold able model.
