Features

This 1-3/4 HP Router produces high-speed cuts for all sorts of woodworking projects. Its 11-Amp motor provides high run speeds and reaches a 27,500 rpm for the fastest performance. The Porter-Cable® 1-3/4 HP router works with included 1/4-inch and 1/2-inch collets to produce different cut sizes, and an auto-release system allows for simple bit-swaps. The cam-lock lever adjusts the height and releases the motor if you want to change the base. The Porter-Cable fixed-base electric router has a specialized micrometer that measures cut depths at increments of 1/64 inches. The unit's aluminum housing protects the motor and the base from minor bumps, and a table stop keeps everything locked in place.

Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suitable power This router keeps a dado bit in it for making ship lap. It has plenty of power for the mid sized bit that I use in it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Power in Mid Sized Package! I have used this router several times on several different woodworking projects and keep finding uses for it everytime. Would recommend this to anyone of any level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go-To Router I have a big production router and several small trim routers, but my 690 fits the Goldilocks requirement ("just right") for most jobs, so I use it 90% of the time. Still going strong after 10+ years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lasting durability if your a woodworker and you only want to purchase a router once, this is it. i've owned this tool and a few others since 1996 and these are so reliable and durable year after year after year. i've been a self employed contractor since 83, this tool has got me out of so many jams, because you can't put a 48in. cabinet in 47in space. this tool will make your cabinets easier because its quicker for changing and setting multiple bits. there are a few porter cable tools i don't have anything good to say about but this ones a keeper. their belt sander does a pretty good job too.
