Anyone know of another source for one of these bases for a 690 router?
I can't even find it on the PC website so it may be a Rockler
exclusive. I like to price compare.
No, it is certainly not a Rockler exclusive. The PC part number is 1001.
You may have better luck finding one at a service center.
Not very many places carry these because they are standard equipment on the
690 series routers. Thus there is little call for
Me too - accidentally. I bought a base for my PC laminate trimmer,
but the seller shipped the 690 base instead, and then shipped the
correct base, and insisted I keep both. So I re-eBayed the 690 base.
IIRC I made $30-35 profit selling it used, so the Rockler deal doesn't
sound too bad.
That's a cheaper price than I recall paying at Rockler some years back.
Considering that you can buy the router motor and base for maybe $119 on
sale, what do you really want to do.
It is a PC part, though.
Its not a Rockler exclusive, its a PC proprietary part, as a few
others have posted. The cost of the part approaches the cost of a new
690 router. If you're not in a rush you can hunt for a used one
particularly that you don't need the motor.
