 Very seldom can you improve on "perfection" but when you look at the changes on the infamous 690 router you will agree that is exactly what Porter-Cable has done. Since quality couldn't be improved, we attacked horsepower by increasing it to 1-3/4 and incorporated a new one-handed lever-release height adjustment. No more fumbling with the T-bolt, now just adjust your height "snap" it and rout. This new mechanism is extremely beneficial in router table applications where space is limited. To top it off we have added a dust proof switch and larger, more ergonomic handles for better control. Of course, you will find the same stand-by features that made the 690 famous; Precision machined aluminum motor housing and base, 1/64-inch micrometer depth-of-cut adjustment, 100-percent sealed ball bearing construction and 1/4-inch and 1/2-inch auto-release collets to ensure bit changes are as smooth as the router itself. Combine that with the Porter-Cable 1 year parts and labor warranty and you have a complete package that will be around for a very long time.
