Porter Cable Router Closeout At The Depot


I just picked up a 2 1/4 horse variable speed router at the Depot.

U.S.A. made--was $189.---Marked down to $89.

I've had one like this ---mounted in a router table for three years.

Will run large panel raising bits --easy to adjust.

If you need a big router --check it out.--Mike---

Yeah, I'll be popping into the Repo to see what's up. I've been stalking for a good deal on a router. I've had good luck with the 1.5 horse PC.

If they still have this it's a great deal. I think it's the porter cable 892 and if so it's a very good router. I have it in my router table and have no complaints.

They only marked it down to $141 here. I need it cheaper than that to pull the trigger.

Same here. That's a good number, but not good enough.

Re: Porter Cable Router Closeout At The Depot


It's still a good router, even though it was made in Mexico, instead of Tenn..

So you have a sku number for the Fat Max tapes?
I checked my local store and they don't know squat.
Said if I get them a sku they may be able to help.
Thanks,
Jeff

The HD in newark, de has the display for 99 and it's in pretty nice shape. May be missing one of the collets and the wrench though, can't see where the cord goes.
