Love my new Porter-Cable
My original Porter Cable router is 23 +/- years old and still running. I wanted a plunge base and figured I could still leave my old router fastened to the table. Now I don't have to constantly switch back and forth. WOW - this new router is so much quieter. I love the soft start.

Unit is solid, it feels substantial in your hands. Soft start is really nice. Now the let down, the instruction manual is below very poor. It is pathetic ! Did you ever try to follow instructions on a humongous sheet of paper.

I needed to make quite a few drawers with dove tails. Not wanting to be going back and forth from Dovetail bit and straight bit I decided to buy another router so I would have a router for each bit. Best decision I ever made.

what router table for this router?
gary d on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I was able to get a complete set at a very good price, I want to say $399.00 but not positive as I can't find the receipt. The Table was a High Pressure Laminate Router Table Top Part # 46924. Also got the Phenolic Router Plate Part #54820. Router Table Leg set Part #48426. Also got the Router Table Fence Part # 58215. Finally he through in for me the 4 pcs Router Table Assessory Kit Part #5676. All five parts together made for a great Router Table that should last me for years to com. Since my purchase I did get a new Router Lift which is really helpful. Anyhow, that's my recommendation that worked great for my shop.

I've been using thE 895 outside of my Rockler table and want to put it back into the table. I need help remembering how and where I insert the micro height adjuster so it supports the router and I can easily adjust the height?? Tom - Denver
