    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.

          The Porter-Cable 690 router, and similar designs, have been around since before World War II. This is a simple, rock-solid reliable router. No bells, no whistles, but it gets the job done every time.

            I've been in cabinetry thirty years.
            This is a very good machine mid power router. The only reason I purchased this is my old one was stolen.
            I use it regularly have dropped my old one a couple of timnes but no real problems.
