Overall Rating for Porter-Cable 690LR 1-3/4 HP Router
(based on 1 review)
Warning Sub-base center hole too small!
By TXdude from Austin Texas on July 30, 2012
This is a high quality router, but has practical design flaws. The unit is sold with a sub-base that has a center hole that is too small for its own factory supplied collets. The collet will hit the base when retracted. Larger bits (with a circumference larger than 1.25") can get dangerously caught between the sub-base and the collet rotating edge. Secondly, the control switch is poorly located on the upper motor housing. I would recommend you choose carefully depending on your intended use. You will be disappointed if you are using bits with any portion of the contour larger than 1.25" Diameter. You must purchase PCbl 2.5" sub-base part number 42188 to get around the sub-base issue as an option.

Powerful, Good grips
Has design flaws

I would recommend this item to a friend.
