                  Very powerful, good price. Well built router and really the only way to go when you need a dedicated router for a table. This is a little much to handle on its own. Most all of the table manufacturers design their tables to be used with this machine. Cpo is the best, fast shipping good communication and reasonable prices.

                    I am using this tool as a heavy duty router in my table and I am cutting crown face molding. So safety and power are most important to me.

                      Q:

                      Will this router work with the 690 base that is attached to my table saw now?

                      Q:

                      Hello,
                      Does this router fit into the same base as a 690 porter cable base that I have on my table saw?
                      I need to use the same base that is part of my table saw to mount this router.
                      Thank you, Pete
