Default New Porter Cable Router - 9690LR

Hi Folks,

Well, decided I wanted a better router for the table than my Skil 1825. I found that under heavier cuts the router motor moved within the router base and that created slightly off routes. For most things it worked fine but a bit of a heavy cut could be a problem so....I bit the bullet with the idea of getting a solid router for the table, hence the PC 9690LR.

I will have to make a new plate for it for the table but that gives me an opportunity to put into practise the advice that BJ gave me about a month ago.

Ed......:-)

Thanks BJ,

That's my second router.....can you have too many routers?....wait....don't answer that....it's retorical and the answer is of course.....never can you have too many routers.

So BJ, how many of this model do you have and what do you do....leave them set up for specific tasks in different tables?

Thanks for looking....

Ed......:-)

Congratulations on your new baby! I've been looking at getting this router to replace/supplement my $89 Ryobi (that came WITH a table!).

Hi DA,

Thank you....I haven't got it mounted yet, hopefully will get that done this weekend, don't know....my wife (LOML) is having me program a web page this weekend but should have time.

The Skil came in at around that price too, maybe $20 more, no table....had to make my own and was glad of it.

This new router cost about 2x more but I can see the quality in it already even without using it. started it up with no bit in it...and it purrs....

Ed......:-)
