Charles,

The PC 6900 routers are definitely some good wook horse routers. I have one that I bought new and one that I bought used. My recommendation is that you look out for one on sale new. My reason is that this router is a bit of a workhorse router and a used one at a good price will often be badly worn and one in good shape will often cost as much as a new one. I have seen these on sale for very reasonable prices recently and normal retail price is only approximately $150 for this router. Even if you find it with just the fixed base, then you can find the plunge base on ebay or something liike that. The one that I use most often came by buying the router new and then purchasing a separate plunge base used. Those are my thoughts.

I been looking on Ebay, but I dont have PayPal. I wish E-bay still took checks or money orders.

Have your say...
