Default Pc 690lr

I found a PC 690LR in a pawnshop the other day. It looks like its in almost new condition. The asking price is $95.00. Would that be a good buy? I'm new to routers, woodworking in general.

Hi redneck

It's bit high ,should be about 50.oo or less because it's used.

I should say how I came up with the price I guess ...
I had a Pawn Lic. for about 10 years,,,when some one came in with a tool they wanted to pawn,,I would look up the price if I didn't know what it sold for, lets say it was 100.oo bucks new in the box,,I would always look at what I could sell it for down the road, that was most of the time,,,in this case about 50.oo use, if it NO marks of any kind, then I would pawn it for 1/10 the price I could sell it for...many things come into play when a item is pawned/ sold to a pawn shop, you must use your head when buying from one.. most are items are sold asis...10 feet rule,, ten feet from the door that's it

To give you an idea of the value of a 690 let me say I bought a 690 combo kit with both plunge and fixed bases, in the carry case with some bits for $90. This router had under 20 hours of use before the owner fell ill. It is in perfect condition. If you are near Detroit it is available. I bought this router to become familiar with it and able to answer questions better.
