  • ISO: router that fits a Woodpeckers QL-350A (PC 690 or 890)

    This weekend I am taking a look at a router table with a Woodpeckers QL-350A lift. I understand that these Porter Cable routers should work with this lift: PC 690 or a PC 890.

    I saw some posts where folks on this site have multiple routers...I don't think that my old Craftsman router (315.174921) will work.

    Does anyone have a PC 690 or a PC 890 in good condition that could be shipped or is in driving distance to Clayton, CA (94517)?

    I think the PC690, 890, Bosch 1617 series all have the same diameter housing so that any router lift that clamps to the housing and has a raising mechanism independent of the router's original.

    That give you access to a lot more routers, including I think certain Dewalt (618 series) models. My router lift takes all routers with 3.5" diameter motors.Generally router rated 1.75-2.5 HP are 3.5" dia. motor housing.

    Your Woodpecker QL350 model number I will bet it means it can take 3.5 inch motors.

    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.
