How do you manage to be a member of a forum for 10 years without a single post!?!? Welcome to the forum as a 'posting' member!

I was just looking at perhaps picking up a larger 1/2" PC router, to go with my 1/4". I was noticing the same thing, not much stock out there. Hopefully, somebody will put some 690's out on a blowout sale!

As someone that works at a woodworking store I can confirm that the PC line will cease to exist as we've already received notification. The only answer for the 7518, which is a standard in cabinet shops will be the Bora 3-1/4 or some othe brand like the one from MLCS woodworking.

Discipline

And I felt I didn't have anything worthy of posting.

I wouldn't hold my breath waiting on a fire sale. Not enough stock to warrant clearing the shelves - they're already bare. Perhaps maddog can comment ?

I have been wanting a 690, to go with my little 1/4" PC model 100 as they share the same bases. Then, I can use them interchangeably. I found a good deal on a mint older 690, made in the USA version, so I ordered it! You are correct, I have not seen any overstock or sales, figured I better nab one before the prices go up and supplies are linited now

We're still waiting as to what's going to be on our shelves. We haven't had any PCs for a couple of months, so not sure what we're going to carry especially with the holiday season rolling up on us.
