Default Bosch router for sale, any good?

It's advertised on Kijiji in Windsor, Ontario. I'd post a link but apparently can't do that yet. It's a plunge router. There is a photo but no model mumber. The guy says he paid $400 for it and wants $100.

Thanks........

Oops, sorry, it's a Porter Cable router. I didn't see any way to edit my incorrect post.

Thanks....

I think this is the one you mean.

Porter-Cable router

It looks like it's been either well used or just sitting in the dust for a while. Couldn't make out a model number on it but it looks like it might be at least a 2, or maybe 2.5hp.. hard to tell without the model number. Also looks like it might have some type of dust collector at the base. I'm thinking it might be worth the money.

Of course, Sears in the US has a dual-base router on sale quite often for around the same price.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

That's the one. (And now I see the Edit button. Don't know how I missed it before.)
I contacted the owner to see if it's still available. I've got an old (30 years?) Craftsman router. I guess I should try using that one first. Sure would like a router table though.

I downloaded the 2 New Yankee Workshop programs on the router. Pretty good basic information.

Thanks for the links. The PC 7529 looks pretty good - except for the shipping. It's $192.02 UPS Worldwide Saver - all the way from Ohio. Some saver!
