Default Are Porter Cable router bases interchanges?

I want another base for my PC 890 because I currently have my base fastened to my router table which means I havenít been able to use it.

I see on eBay that there are some D-handle 6911 bases, but I donít know if it will fit my 890

John,

The 890 fixed base is different from the 690 base because of the rack mechanism for adjusting the bit height. I tried to put my 890 motor into a 693 base, and I first had to remove the rack, and even after that it was a very tight fit.

There are a few 890 bases on ebay from time to time. I've seen a fixed base 890 at the pawn shop for $100, which would be a great way to get an extra base and motor.

Hi Johnny...I have a brand new one off my PC 892 I will sell you.

Check your PM box.

When something is advertised as being foolproof there is always a better class of fool that comes along to prove them wrong.
