Default Pretty hot router?

I have a couple of routers, a Craftsman and rebuilt Ryobi . I bought a PC 690 today and after mounting in my router table and using a clasical bit ,in making some minor adjustments for the hieght of the bit I noticed how hot the motor was getting almost to hot to turn. Is this normal for one of these routers?

Much thanks Walt

Hi Walt

They do run warm but should Not be HOT to the touch,,, are you using a drop cord ?, if so make sure it's the right size for the load and not over 25ft...

If you still have a error you want to pack it up and take a trip to the store and get a replacment..

Thanks Bj, That might be the problem. I'm using a 50' cord to reach across the shop also do you know if I can use one of these speed controls with this particular model.

Thanks Walt
