Having built a new router table to replace an aging one, I had purchased a router lift that required the PC 7518. The problem was a new 7518 router, even on sale, was about $350. I checked with all local tool dealers and they actually wanted more for the motor alone, than they did for a whole new router. Only needing the motor I found this on Amazon for about $100 off the price of the whole router. It came in three days and ran just as advertised. Mounted in my new Woodpecker router lift it became one of those, "where have you been all my life" moments.

I purchased this router because I decided I wanted to make my own kitchen cabinets. I have 2 other Porter Cable routers which didn't have the HP to handle the larger bits needed for the raised panel doors. I also purchased a JessEm Masr R Lift to handle the heavy router. What a combination. The router exceeded my expectations. With the variable speed I was able to safely control the speed of the larger bits. The router had more than enough power to handle anything I could throw its way. It cut through the oak like it was butter.. The router arrived a few days later than I expected it but was extremely well packaged. This router is a real workhorse. It wasn't any louder than my other router and never over heated with constant use. I would highly recommend this router. I checked all over the internet and at other woodworking stores and couldn't find it any cheaper than Amazon. Well worth the investment.

I have used quite a few routers in 30 plus years of woodworking and the porter cable is by far the most powerful I have ever set hands on. The multi speeds work as well with a small roundover as a full sized panel raising bit. The easy release collet makes bit changing very easy. I would compare this router in my table with some of the dedicated shapers I have used. A great tool and the best price anywhere.

I've been reading router review articles and web sources for some time now. I bought this model, because the PC7518 is obviously the industry standard high-power router to stick in a router table. All the accessories, router lifts, etc. come standard for this model. For me, it's too big and heavy to use in hand, so there was no reason to get (and pay for) a fixed- or plunge-base -- I just wanted the motor, and that's what the 75182 model is. Mine is going into the router table and staying there, so it's the best choice for me.

I would have given 5 stars, but the runout at the collet was a bit excessive for a router this pricey. It's only really noticeable with my largest panel raisers, but this was why I invested in this particular router in the first place. It sits in a benchdog tablesaw extension and router lift. This router really complements this particular setup, it makes for a very heavy duty, robust and professional setup. I'm very pleased. Like others have mentioned, I ordered machined collets for it, which cost about 40% of the total price for this router. I wasn't really happy about it, but I did get 1/4 and 1/2 collets in the set, which fit my other PC routers(and many others) as well. Again, only really noticeable with my big raisers, and checking with a dial indicator gauge I use to check slot-to-blade and fence to blade runout. I'd like to report that I noticed a huge reduction in vibration, and vast improvement of bit performance with the machined collets, but honestly I didn't see that much difference. Bottom line: This router HAS to sit some type of router lift, but I doubt you'll find a more versatile router with this much power, that fits as many router lifts. Since I had no plans to try to manhandle this thing as a straight up router, it was nice to save almost 100 not having to buy the fixed/plunge bases.

I bought this router motor to use with an INCRA-SW420HD router lift. Setup was easy, as the router lift came with brackets designed for the 7518. The motor has plenty of power and so far I have been pleased with its performance. I agree with other reviews that it is loud, but not necessarily any louder than other routers I've used. I use ear protection so the noise doesn't really bother me.

The variable speed is nice, allowing for high speed with small bits and slower speeds with larger bits. If you're using it in a router table, I recommend adding a power switch such as the Kreg PRS3100, as reaching under the table to turn it on and off would be a pain. (Note that the Kreg mounting holes are on one side of the switch and are not adjustable from side to side - as you might guess, I had to make an adjustment in my setup to account for this). Otherwise, the power cord is plenty long (actually longer than I need) if you intend to plug it into an outlet and turn it on and off manually.

Bought this to replace my Bosch 1615EVS as a dedicated table router. Has the about the same power as the Bosch and about the same amount of loud. Installed it in a JessEm Master lift. Runs with very little vibration. I can stand an unsharpened pencil on end with the motor running (no bit) on the table. I like the slide switch for the setting the motor speed.

I bought this router moter about 3 months ago, it handles my freud rised panel bit with back cutter with no problem,I use an after market router collet from think and tinker. My 7518 is mounted in the woodpeckers sidewinder, its the cat's meow.The collets seem to be made different then when they were made in U.S.A.That why I buy the american made after market collets they are easyer to use and have less run out than the new ones from China, the motor is made in Mexico.The speed control is easyer to see and adjust than other types of routers when mouted in a router table,its bigger than the little dials found on alot of other routers.
