  • Unpacking the shop and have too many routers

    My wife thinks I have too many tools which is just completely insane. When it comes to routers, however she may have a point.

    For sale are the following:
    SOLD - Porter Cable 693 Fixed/Plunge Base Set - $85
    SOLD - Porter Cable 6912 motor in a fixed base with a Rousseau Table Plate - $50
    SOLD - Ryobi R175 with the template bushing set - $?? Make me an offer
    SOLD - MicroFence Edge guide and circle jig - $100


    Porter Cable 693PK set with both plunge and fixed bases in a fancy case. Includes 1/4 and 1/2" collets both wrenches and the manual. Note that this router will need a new end on the cord as the grounding pin broke off a couple of years ago and I stopped using it at that point. I bought the set new in March of 2003.

    Porter Cable 6912 motor in a fixed base with a Rousseau Table Plate. This was in my extension table for years and works great. The motor has a has a 12" cord. It is in a fixed base mounted to a Rousseau Phenolic plate. I'm certain the sub base for the fixed base is long gone. This also has 1/4" and 1/2" collets and the original two wrenches.

    Ryobi R175 with the template bushing set. This is my first ever router and has seen tons of use over the years. It only has a 1/4" collet. I think I have the manual somewhere, but haven't found it unpacking the shop yet. It comes with the set of plastic template guides.

    Finally is a Mircrofence Edge Guid and Circle Jig. This was an impulse buy at the woodworking show in 2005. It is a really well made product, but I really have no use for it. I've used it a couple of times and haven't even taken the circle guide out of the packaging. It has the "Model A" interface plate which is required for all their additional jigs. If you have a router that isn't listed on the box picture below, you will also need an interface for your router which is $40 from MicroFence.

    That's excellent prices, even with shipping added to it. If I didn't have too many already, I would jump on at least one.

      Yes, thats some good prices on classic PC routers.
      If I didn't already have 5 routers I'd be tempted to pick up the 6912 to mount in my Jessem router raising clamp, the 69x motors and the Bosch 1617 series and the popular DeWalt and Hiitachi routers all have the same diameter motor. $20 for a motor speed controller and you'd be all set.
