Default D-handle for PC 690LR?

I'm thinking about purchasing a D-handle for my Porter Cable 690LR router. Currently, I only have a fixed base. So 2 questions:

1. How do you deal with the long cord on the router when using the D-handle base?

2. Can I find a cheaper, used D-handle someplace? I've only seen these for about $100 or so new. Seems like a lot to spend on a base I'll only use occasionally.

Issue 1:

Base are cheaper if you don't buy them from PC, have you done some seaches at places like amazon.com or international tool? It is still going to cost you but I really like the one I have for my 690's...... Norm loves them too.
