Topic tags/keywords: router

I found and bought a Made in USA PC 6902 Router of e-bay, it aint ship yet. Because it takes a few for Pay-Pal to move the funds but anyway. I am wondering how much is the case worth? I problemly pay to much $89.99 Plus shipping.

It’s a good basic router. I have two of them and that is all I have used. I think you got it at a decent price. Now to sink a bunch of money into bits! I have way more in bits than in the two routers.

From the picture, it looks very well maintained. I mean, it’s priced a bit high but there are worse things in the world. I think you’ll enjoy it more than you paid for it. Nice score.

That’s a keeper for sure. Don’t have any idea about the case value.
That was when the PC stuff was well made.

I bought an older version of the same router nearly 20 years ago. I was wavering on the decision while the salesman was helping me. A rough-looking fellow walked up, jammed his thumb at the router and said “That thing is F&^%$#g indestructible!” and walked off.

The salesman said “Well, I guess my job is done”

Still using it. The guy was right. Enjoy your purchase.

Nice little work horse, a lot of wood worker prefer the older 690 to the newer ones. I
guess they were built better a few years ago as compared to now. I gotta 1980’s craftsman
that still works good so a lightly used PC will probably last you a long time.

Mine’s still going strong after many years. The metal storage case has to make it that much more valuable.

Great deal, I think I have about 5 of them. More then I use or need. placed 2 in a garage sale for 50.00 each and got one look but the fella did not like the price and walked away. I am glad he did not buy them actually.

I have two PC690 series routers … a 6902 (like yours) in my router table, and one of the later variable speed models with plunge and fixed base. They are workhorses … I’m betting you will be very happy with your purchase!
