Woodcraft has a trade in on routers? Any info on this, it might be a nice way to ditch my 1/4” collet, single speed B&D that I only paid 10.00 for on craigslist. I really do need something better.

Here's the link to Woodcraft’s sales flyer. $50 instant credit towards what looks like Porter-Cable routers with a trade in router.

I’m trying to figure out how to put all my routers on a rotating wheel so I can set each one up to do a different profile and then just spin the routers instead of changing bits..I would only need 2 wheels with my current number of routers….........................Schloemoe

Great deal. I got one just like it last Summer from a Craig’s List ad. It came with two router table tops and two Woodpecker phenolic router plates and the entire bunch of stuff was $50! I felt so guilty that I gave a woodworking friend one of the router plates for his router table.

Nope. No April fool. I thought about that because it was April 1st but nope. I still did go look at another router, they wanted $25. It was an old small Craftsman and it came with a small table, offered $15 for just the router and they said no $25 with or without the table and I said bye.

So if I were to pick up a used router for $10-$15 I may still do the Woodcraft thing. With a gift card I have and the $50 trade in that put the 690LR around $60 out of pocket, well worth that. I think I’d have enough routers then. That put me at 11. :-)

very nice deal. I always love to see people score great deals. Now you can flip it for 100.00 and make a quick 50.00. Just kidding. I have 3 of those combo kits and they are really nice.

The beauty of that model is that there’s nothing wasted on gimcrackery. Motor, collet, base, switch. Ready, set, rout. I own seven of them.

I have four larger PC routers and I’d have a hard time arguing they are better in any meaningful way.

Great deal, great story.

Kindly,

Lee

Well I did it anyway, picked up a $10 Craigslist router and traded it in at Woodcraft for a Porter-Cable 690LR. Total out of pocket cost, $68 including the $10. Used a Gift Card I had from Christmas andI couldn’t find anything I really wanted. Guess I could have bought more Bessey clamps…

Think I’ll sell my Bosch 1613EVS, seldom use it, probably haven’t used it in years, can’t even remember the last time I did.
