Problem is, out in the real world - few if any "certified retailers" have any stock.

Looks like English is not the primary language of the DeWalt csr.

It seems that Porter Cable found themselves competing with DeWalt in the same price point/market space.  It seems that one of those products either had to move to  a new price point, or disappear.  The DeWalt designs seem more modern, so I am guessing that drove the decision to end production on the P-C routers.

We may see similar moves on their random orbital sanders and circular saws.

Doe this apply to just PC or to Dewalt routers also? If just PC, it was only a matter of time. Kind of like GM shutting down Pontiac and Oldmobile. Too much redundancy.

I own a few PC routers, but if I was looking to buy a router today, I wouldn't look at the PC routers.

Prob. just as well. 

And good thing you aren’t waiting on Grainger as was suggested round here earlier cause they just removed most of the line from their website and changed the expected delivery from Oct. to Nov. on the few they didn’t remove.  Which was changed from Sept. before that. 

Meaning, it’s darn near impossible to buy a new one even if you were inclined.

St. Roberts MO. Lowes store had a shelf full of 690's the other day. May be the last of the stock.
