Porter Cable Fixed Routers
Porter-Cable® fixed base routers are part of an impressive family of Porter-Cable power tools that give you a complete toolkit for all carpentry, woodworking and renovation tasks. These devices offer the precision and power you need for all trimming, edging, mortising and scrollwork tasks.
Fixed base routers are the largest group of Porter-Cable routers currently available. You can attach one to a table for a dedicated router workstation or use free-hand and edge routing work. All Porter-Cable fixed base routers come with powerful, easy-start motors that maintain their cutting speed through dense materials. These routers come with motors ranging from 4.5 to 15 Amps, so it's easy to find the one that meets your specific demands. Porter-Cable fixed base routers also come with single, variable and 5-speed motors. The 5-speed models have an output range of 10,000 to 21,000 rpm. The variable speed models provide output between 16,000 and 35,000 rpm.
Porter-Cable fixed base routers also offer all the features you need for precision routing work. They include both coarse and fine depth adjustment settings, a transparent base so you can keep an eye on your cutline and LED task illumination for close-up work or work in dim lighting. These fixed base routers give you several conveniences as well. Auto-release collets let you change bits easily. Quick-release tabs and a lock-down slide let you remove the router from its base and re-secure it quickly and safely. All models have comfortable, secure-grip rubber knobs to reduce hand fatigue. Porter-Cable's fixed base routers also include several compact models with oversized and balanced palm grips that are ideal for work that requires a more delicate touch. You can find all Porter-Cable routers, including plunge routers, in convenient Porter-Cable router kits.
Porter-Cable fixed base routers are versatile tools that will become a key component of your tool chest. Take a closer look at how you can apply them in your workplace or home shop, and you'll see why many professionals and DIYers always make sure they have one on hand.
