Jim!
I can’t believe that.
I thought you must have every model of every make since Noah.

I am as well shocked that Jim doesn’t have one. I’ve seen the photos. It’s like a router museum/warehouse in his shop! I bet he has 3 of them and just doesn’t know it, or he can’t find them under all the other routers ;)

I have that one, from what I can tell. I’ve had it for about 5 years. The posts are .788” in diameter. I can’t measure the exact distance between on center, but the posts are exactly 4.460” apart inner side.

Troy – A trick for measuring centers is to measure like edges, like left edge of one to left edge of the other. This gives you a reference point, and, for example, a place to hook a tape measure.

Inner edge to inner edge plus the radius of each post will give the CP to CP. So, 4.460 + .788 = 5.248. And I to am shocked Jim doesn’t own one.

Leave it to those Yankee LJ’s to bail you out Mate.

(I wish someone would surprise me with one of your Torque Workcentres !!)

Come on Jim, you expect us to believe that you don’t have two or three of that model, probably in different colors???

I’m pretty sure 690 & 693 would be identical. The last number, if I recall correctly, just designates whether it was part of a multi-base kit. So if someone has a 690 in a plunge base, that is what Larry needs.

I can get it for you in a few hours when I’m back home, Larry…. if no one jumps in before then.

I’m coming up with 18.5 mm diameter on my digital caliper, and 150 mm o.c.

I hope between David’s measurements and mine this is close enough for Australian government work. :-)

I also have the 690lr sorry.. if its like the 690lr at all. Its hard to mount under the router table, when you adjust the depth of cut you have to turn the whole motor.
