Porter Cable's 6931 Plunge router base is an excellent buy. It adds versatility to the #693. I highly recommend purchasing this item for anyone that does not want to go to the expense of purchasing an entire router just to have the plunge feature.

A company like Porter-Cable should realize that the "Out of Box" experience for any product includes GOOD instructions.
Porter-Cable gets a big "F" for the "manual" that comes with this product!

I rated this product a "3" because Porter-cable went the route of using a cheesy, generic, instruction pamphlet-style manual that requires a magnifying glass to read...sort of like those manuals you get with cheap alarm clocks but bigger in size to cover alot of products. It covers router and plunge-base products and allocates about 4 lines to converting your (6902 motor in my case) to the plunge base. You really have to hunt for these 4 lines.

I almost sent the unit back because I followed the scarce directions and my 6902 wouldn't slide far enough into the plunge base. "Finally"...I figured out that taking out the "Motor Clamp Screw" (allen head) completely with the small plate and barrel-nut it attaches to, allows the 6902 motor to slide all the way down and be seated correctly in the plunge-base.
Re-install the "Motor Clamp Screw assembly" after the router motor is in the plunge-base.

Directions say to loosen the "Motor Clamp Screw" approximately 1/2" but that's not enough. Not the best design as it takes patience to use the little allen wrench supplied to re-tightened that "Motor Clamp Screw".

If your planning on going back and forth alot between fixed-base and plunge-base; save yourself the aggrevation and just buy a plunge router to go along with your fixed-base router.

Once I completed the install...no problems. Worked very well as advertised.

The base is well-made, with thicker construction than the standard base.

The only two small cons I could find with this base is that if you let it travel to the top quickly, it can stick in the upright position, and require a gentle tap with a hammer on the left tower to release; the second is that it's a tad harder for a leftie to use-- I'm used to that by now, though.

In the 'would have been nice to have' category, I wish it had a dust collection port adapter. If you're routing signs or doing inlays, you spend a lot of time removing chips to check progress.

To be honest, even though I have been an avid woodworking hobbyist for 40 years, I have never used a plunge router. Already having a pretty healthy herd of routers, the last thing I need was another router, so instead, I ordered this plunge router base. I am absolutely amazed at how it changes my previously fixed base routers. It is almost infinitely adjustable, very well manufactured and has completely revolutionized the inlay work I do. With the plunge base, it becomes a breeze to take progressively deeper passes, to a predetermined depth with each pass, simply by turning the depth turret.

This is a surprisingly useful addition to my router arsenal. I love it.

I had an old 690 router that only had a "D" handle base. I decided to upgrade the router with the Plunge base. The base fit perfectly and gives new life to the old 690.

Good purchase, excellent service from Amazon.

For the hobbyist or professional, the 690 series routers are the go-to for reliability and precision. Not the fanciest but certainly tough enough for the money, this plunge base can be relied upon for all your mortising projects. I have been using Porter Cable products for years and have been consistently impressed with the build quality and precision. Your 690 motor will drop into this base and you are in business. I would recommend this to anyone with plunge routing needs.

Excellent accessory for your router. I was very surprised at the quality of this tool. Easy adjustability and accurate. My fixed base is rarely used since adjusting depth of cut is so easy and quick. The chip shield works great and keeps a large amount of saw dust off of my clothes. If you are thinking about getting it then stop thinking and buy it. I have no cons for this plunge base.
