      Comments about 1 3/4 Peak HP Router:

      This is a nice little unit; my only beef is with the on/off switch. Its location is fine for a router table, ie. when the router is upside down. Right side up though, it's a long way from the grip and has an odd toggle feel due to the cover over the rocker switch. If you're cutting someplace away from the controlled environment of a worktable with jigs/clamps, it starts to feel sketchy taking one hand off the grip and hunting around for that switch.

          I use my router a lot. Most of its uses are in conjunction with a Porter Cable router table. I have used this combination to make anything from kitchen cabinets to tongue and groove flooring. The only weakness in the system is the tightening latch which holds the router body in the table housing. This loosens at times and thus changes the height setting.

            Haven't used it yet due to a delay in getting my router table set up. CPO keeps bugging me to write a review so here it is.

            Comments about 1 3/4 Peak HP Router:

            I bought a 6902 (non-lever release model) 20 years ago and it's still running strong. I alternate between the fixed and plunge base as needed and also use it on a router table. The router doesn't care what I ask it to do, it just keeps on working. It's a bit much for delicate work but I have a laminate trimmer for that. A dust collection option would be nice.
