The right table for me right now.
I've been working with a table saw, mitre saw, hand drills and a sander. I saw what a router could do and thought I could build better projects with it under a table. I like the porter cable 698 because it had a metal top. I did not know the stand was metal, but was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box. It went together very easily and I did not have to level anything. I was confused when I called CPO requesting information regarding what routers would fit this table and no one could give me any models except the porter cables. Really? You would think that with all the equipment they sell, someone might know. So I had to do research myself and found an article in popular mechanics that reviewed some of the model routers I was interested in. This helped a lot. I was also disappointed that the table came with very little safety equipment. It did have a flimsy shield attached to one side of the fences, but it just seemed to get in the way. So I picked up a piece of hardwood and some T track and built my own fence. This way I can use feather boards to keep material where it's supposed to be and my hands away from the moving parts, especially the bit. I did use the table and router to build it and was happy how it performed. It is easy to move from point A to point B and my router allows for above the table bit chanes. I know the more I use it the better I'll get to know it's capabilities. CPO, get your staff up to speed on product knowledge. I would have probably bought my router from you too, if the guy on the phone would have suggested a couple of models that would have fit the table. I did get hung up on when I asked and was put on hold. Oh well, your loss.

My Porter-Cable plunge router mounted just fine.
I want to use a half-round to cut a grove into the center of the the bottom of a fret board. The chips fall right into the opening of the router so, I need to figure out how to keep the chips out of the inside of the router. That is my only problem so far.

kinda sorta????????
I purchased this table because of the Porter Cable name of quality and that had metal work surface. I had one minor assembly problem and that hole not lining-up on the dust shut attachment.
I also think they could included a feather board.

Will the porter cable 690lr work with this table, thank you.
mj on Jun 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As to the PC 690lr working with the table: I don't know but as a
suggestion, make a trace pattern of you r690 bass plate and take that
tracing to the stores and see if the mounting screw holes line up with the
mounting holes on the table. My PC 1001 works well with the table.

Will this table work with a DeWalt router (DW618)?
DC on Jan 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This comes down to the pattern of holes in the base plate of your router.
You can answer this question yourself. Simply go to your local store and
look at the Porter-Cable routers to compare the pattern of holes to your
router. If they don't match, then this isn't going to work for you.
Modifying the router's bottom plate or the table is more work than this
table costs :)
Are holes on table (should be approx 4" square) made for PC Speedmatic Model 7518?
Tooly on Jul 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This table has both 3 and 4 hole mounting options and the holes are on 4
inch enters.
Dill
will a skill router work?
Bear on Mar 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If this is the Porter Cable table, I don't know, I do know it will not
take Craftman Routers. The way tocheck is trace the plate of the Skill
router and check it agains the PC router at a store near you, or just go in
the store and check one base plate against the other but come back to CPO
for the better price on the table. Hope that helps
will this table fit an older porter cable router model # 1001
Steve on Dec 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. The 1001/1002 combination is simply a beefed up router of what is now a 690 series. I have a couple of these 14+ year old routers myself. If made before 2006, these are great routers.
Will this table accommodate most routers?
Blake on Mar 6, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This product is very modifiable, with multiple starting pin locations and quick-adjust split-fence design with independently adjustable halves. It has the specifications on the page, but all of the reviews for it are positive, so I would assume this product delivers. You don't say exactly the size of the routers that you want to fit, so I can't precisely answer your question. Thank you.
