Amazon.com Review
Porter-Cable's 1-3/4-horsepower router is popular with woodworkers for good reason. It's reliable, powerful, and exceptionally smooth running--not to mention versatile. Although the 691 comes with a D-handle base, the motor is interchangeable with Porter-Cable's excellent plunge base or two-handle fixed base. Both matching bases are available separately for much less than the cost of a new router, and switching bases for different applications is a quick and easy operation.

We really appreciate Porter-Cable's new autorelease collet design, which prevents bits from getting frozen in the machine. It'd be great if Porter-Cable could come up with an alternative to needing two wrenches for a bit change, but this minor inconvenience is far outweighed by the tool's overall quality. In fact, Porter-Cable's focus on simple, quality engineering is the reason for this model's long-lasting success. The router doesn't offer electronic variable-speed control or enough power to effectively double as a shaper, but it is among the smoothest-running routers we've tried, producing consistently clean results. For most applications it offers all the versatility and muscle you could ask for. --Brian Trinen

From the Manufacturer
A convenient D-handle with a built-in locking trigger allows easier operation and better control of this 10 amp, 1-3/4-horsepower router. The motor has a machined aluminum housing for durability and heat dissipation and has 100-percent sealed ball bearing construction. The included 1/4-inch and 1/2-inch collets have an auto-release design that prevents router bits from becoming frozen or trapped in the collet after use. This eliminates the need to tap on the arbor to break the collet free, a practice that can damage the motor. Adjusting the bit depth is as simple as loosening a wing nut and turning the motor within the aluminum base. A micrometer ring on the base acts as a reference for fine adjustments to within 1/64 of an inch. The motor is also interchangeable with the #1001 fixed router base and the #6931 plunge base for added versatility. Includes motor #6912, base #6911, 1/4-inch collet #42999, 1/2-inch collet #42950, two collet wrenches #42596, and operator's manual.
