PC 690

Now this PC router I really like. Wish I had another. I have used it for years with no problems. Can't say the same for the bigger PC routers I have.

BERNARD H from Pickford, MI Posted August 6, 2011
I purhased this router, one for the price, and second for the 50 dollar gift sertificate. Once I received the router it was more than that. I put it in my small router table and it works great. I would recommend it to anyone and the price is right.

Guest from Dallas, TX Posted June 17, 2011
Bought this router to permanently go into my new Router Lift FX. It fit perfectly and works like a champ. Only regret is that I didn't know about the $20 rebate until 6/30/11 from Porter Cable and pitched the box. Needed the UPC from the packaging. : All in all, a good value, especially with the $50 gift card.
