Buying a Router for Carpentry


As far as I'm concerned you just can't beat the Porter CAble 690's. Get the newer model with variable speed, and if it is going to be you only router, go with the kit, so you have the plunge base, although you really don't use it as often as everyone seems to think.

I also have the newer 2 or 2 1/4 hp PC with the fine adjustment knob and cam lock, but it is a little tall for my personal likes, as I do a lot of "one handed" edge profiling.

I'm not saying that the other brands are not good, all of the pro level ones have lots of followers, but my experience is with the PC,s and like the other guy said, they are work horses.
