Topic tags/keywords: porter cable 6902 6931 router plunge base

G’day Lumberjocks!

I’ve got a couple of routing tasks that would be easier (and better) done using a plunge base. I have a Porter Cable 6902 router (two, in fact), each with the fixed base. One I have screwed into the bottom of my makeshift router table and the other is my work-a-day base. However comma I would really like to have a plunge base for doing keyhole slots and similar small jobs.

I haven’t found any on Cragslist around here, eBay has been “iffy” for me buying used tools and, being recently laid off, I really cannot afford/justify a new one.

Anybody have an extra one they wouldn’t mind selling for a low-but-reasonable price? If so, shoot me a message and a price (shipped to ZIP Code 68005) and we’ll see if we can make a deal.

Thanks!

Dan

After my Unemployment Office appointment, I decided to go check out thrift stores and pawn shops. SCORE!! I found a Porter Cable 6902 complete set – motor, fixed base and plunge base, plus wrenches, base plates, collets and a couple of random bits, in the PC case – at a pawn shop. They had $139.95 on it, I mumbled something about ‘a hundred bucks’ and the gal (who apparently didn’t hear me) said “he’d take 75 for it” I said “weeellll… alright.”

Not a bad day for tool-shopping. Now, if I could only find the same kind of deal on a decent router lift!!!
