Review Summary

I also entered my review under Porter-Cable 1-3/4 hp Multibase Router Kit because the model was not specified. This router is a very dependable workhorse. I have had this for a couple of years and I have never had any problems with the router itself. The only problem I have had was with poor router bits. I like having two bases, one plunge cut and one fixed base. The varible speed allows me to control my feed rate. This by far is the best router I have owned to date.
