Better than ever
I love the D handle 691 router. My last one finally got too hard to tighten and I have to "trust" my settings as I work with expensive hardwoods in trim work and furniture. My last one went about 20 years. This new one has some minor improvements and I got it slightly cheaper than what I paid 20 years ago.

Couldn't be happier with my buy
I needed this router to start using my dovetail jig and now I'm cutting dovetails with ease.

Excellent Control
I have 5 routers. One is a production router, PC of course, and 3 other PC routers. I have liked to use the plunge features of the others machines, but the D-handle routers provides unparalleled control compared to any other. I use two routers for the routing of each of the pins and tails when dovetail routing. If you have never tried a D-handle router before, you will impressed with the control it offers. I love mine and can honestly recommend it to you.

I now have four of theses Routers
Great balance, easy to change bits, easy to dial in depth of cut, plenty of power for most things. I have three Porter Cable routers of this size and one big one, they are all great.

D-Handle provides excellent control
I purchased the router mainly for dovetails and the Dhandle makes it excellent for that purpose and probably for other jobs. I also have a 3 1/2 H.P. Porter Cable Router and there is no stopping it. I highly recommend both for anyone who is considering purchasing a router. I was also pleased with how quick I received my purchase.
