Default pc 310 router

Hello everyone,
Does porter cable still make pc310 trimmer? Where can I purchase one and if not what's just as good or better.
I have the pc310 and use it for sign carving. Thanking all in advance for your input.

Amazon says out of stock and not sure if more will be coming but shows an alternative. Robot Check
There's the Bosch Colt. Pat Warner (Quillman) recommends the Ridgid trimmer. A bunch of us have the DeWalt 611 which is a little bigger and the PK package includes fixed and plunge bases. I haven't seen anyone who has one that said they didn't like it.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Looks to me like the 1.25hp PC and Dewalt are the same unit.

I like the Makita too, I have the PC,don't like the heaght adjustment, but use it all the time,set up for edge rounding. The Makita is also set up ready to go, also have a trend 3000, and a mcls ,(makita clone) in the pantoghragh. I had a Ridgid and really liked it. A buddy has the Dewalt and likes it a lot.

You might want to check the "BLACK+DECKER BDCMTR Matrix Router Attachment". I think it will serve as a good and cheap replacement to the Poter Cable pc310 router

"one and if not what's just as good or better."
Not squatty like a 310, but with a larger base plate footprint: Acceptable.
