Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Router Bought because of the linear bearings used for the plunge mechanism. Smooth as as silk. I use this with a Leigh FMT pro jig and you will not find a better router for the job.Have used without the jig and starting to think about getting anotherone and selling the PC 690. Anyway a great but
