You gotta have this one
Own several Porter cable routers. All perform perfectly, but some times you need a one handed router. This is the perfect one for thoses times. Purchased to be used with ROCKLER'S 2 3/4 State park sign making kit. Out of the box setup a snap. First sign made was excellent. Well satified with operation.

What edge guide works with this router, if any?
Kevin C on Oct 5, 2015
Could you use this for sign making?
Donny L on Feb 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can. This maybe a compact Router but it can do just as much as the larger units. It is just not going to be as powerful as the full size units. So, you may have to go a little slower or possibly do more than one pass to complete your task.

Does this router include what is required to attache a guide bushing or do I have to buy an attachment for it ?
Tom I on Aug 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Both bases have a plastic bottom plate to attach a guide bushing. So no, no other attachments necessary. You just need the guide bushing and the screw ring that should come with the bushing kit to attach.
Does plunge base model 4514 fit the laminate trimmer model PCE6430??
