just got this email from Grizzly is it a good deal?

July 18th – July 31st


T22091 690LR 1 3/4HP Router
Powerful and efficient, the Porter-Cable 690LR Fixed-Base Router utilizes a hefty 1-3/4-horsepower motor to generate an impressive 27,500 rpm for precise cuts. Two ergonomic handles are strategically placed to make routing easy and comfortable, even during all-day jobs. For added convenience, the router includes collets that will accept 1/4-inch and 1/2-inch shank bits. For user-friendly performance and consistency, the router includes an auto-release collet system for easy bit removal. An under-table stop prevents the motor from inadvertantly rotating out of the base, and ergonomic molded grips keep your hands and wrists comfortable, even during extended jobs.

11 amp, 1-3/4 HP fixed base router
One-handed lever-release height adjustment; 1/64” micrometer depth-of-cut adjustment
Precision-machined aluminum motor housing and base; 100 percent sealed ball bearing construction
Includes router, 1/4” collet and 1/2” collet
Weighs 8 lbs

Yep- its a good deal. Shipping will be another $10-15 though. Still a good deal if you need a router.

It’s $114 shipped….still not a bad price relative to other retailers of the same router. It’s a nice router, however it doesn’t have variable speed, so won’t be great in a router table.

Other options include the Hitachi M12VC with variable speed for $119 shipped. $89 shipped for a refurbished unit. And the DW616 for $120 shipped…also a single speed.

It’s a very good price; watch for amazon though; they sometimes put the 690 on sale for the same price but you don’t pay shipping.

I use 3 dw616’s in my plunge bases and they’re great. I love how compact they are.

My router table router is a 690; it works fine, so long as you aren’t using gigantic bits. It’s been a workhorse in my shop. When I add another circuit I’ll upgrade to the bosch 1617evs; it’s $159.99 shipped at cpo bosch.

You can’t go wrong with a 690. They’re hard workers.
