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
  • Dust sealed switch and sealed ball bearing construction enhance tool durability
  • Includes router, 1/4" collet and 1/2" collet
  • Weighs 8 lbs

Great Tool 07/31/2020 10:23:17 PM

We bought this router for our son for his birthday! He was thrilled with his Porter Cable! I have a PC with the D handle and I love it!
Grizzly had a great price!

Porter Cable Router 07/20/2018 3:22:36 AM

Very handy for my use, frees up the Router in the Router Table to stay where it is. I like these Routers for hand held use.

This is a great router. 12/14/2017 5:32:40 PM

I really like the ability to use 1/4" and 1/2" shank bits. Works well in my router table too!

This router replaces an older Porter-Cable router which I wore out after many years of hard use. I anticipate many more years of woodworking enjoyment with this new router; it is well-built, versatile, fine features, rugged, easy to use. Good old Porter-Cable quality.

The industry standard for half a century. 01/30/2017 9:03:51 PM

Got this on a super deal from Grizzly for $89.99. This is the go to standard router for all hobbyist's. Every vendor makes sure that any attachments, jigs, fixtures, and other tools are compatible with this router first. Plenty of power, great reputation, durable and great quality. I intend to keep this mounted in the router table and use my plunge router for the rest of my work.

Awesome router for the price 01/29/2017 2:47:01 PM

I have needed a few more routers to add to my dovetail machine and one for my pc plunge base to keep from having to change bits and setup. And I have never seen this price and already owning one I jumped on it and bought 2. Grizzly your the best.

Workhorse router 01/28/2017 1:10:40 PM

This model router is the first we reach for in my cabinet shop. It also fits the Castle TSM 21 Pocket Hole Machine. It has proven to be tough and dependable.

Well worth the money 01/26/2017 1:36:47 PM

This is a great product and I really enjoy using it. Easy setup, good viewing window with a comfortable feel in my hands. I couldn't be happier with a tool which I knew I would be the case as has been the case with all of my Grizzly product purchases.

Excellent router 01/23/2017 9:27:16 AM

I already own one of these Porter Cable routers and it is everything a good tool should be. So when I saw that Grizzly was offering them for $90 I couldn't resist. Like Norm Abrams once said " I don't change router bits, I change routers".

Scott B
Just what I needed! 01/22/2017 12:18:07 PM

I needed to add a router so I could easily switch between cutting tails and pins without having to change my setup. This was a great addition at a great price.
