To anyone that knows. I found a Porter Cable 691 router with 3 bases, several guide bushings and bits, plus a PC trim router at a yard sale all for $64. All practically brand new. The bushing are still in the packages. I’m thinking it’s worth much more than $64.
Any input is greatly appreciated.

sounds like a good deal – the 691 kit is around $200 alone and the trim router is at least $115…

If they are in good condition and work well a very good deal.

They are all in very good barely used condition. The guide bushings are still in the original packaging. Never used.

I’ve bought (on craigslist) three 691’s – each for about $40-50. With the other stuff coming with that router, its a good deal.

Naaahhhhh . . . bad deal . . . I’ll give you $65 to take it off your hands and make you feel better . . .

You dog! Nice take! Hope you enjoy using yours as much as I enjoy mine (though I paid CONSIDERABLY more!)

Cheers!

I’ll post pics tomorrow. As soon as I got home today I had a big “HONEY DOO” list, so I didn’t get a chance to take them.
