Plunge base for PC 690LR type 2 router
#11
  
Decal  on my PC router says "690LR type 2"
Looking for compatible plunge router base.
When I bought it [yard sale], seller said he had a plunge base for it but couldn't find it.
Seller DID HAVE owner's manual for 6931 Type 2 plunge base
Search in cyberspace had models suitable for 690 series routers. But fine print listed models but not 690LR type 2 router.
Help?

Type 2 was just a small change (usually upgrade) from Type 1 base. Could have been the knob was changed...etc etc.

All 690 bases will fit on 690's, 690LR's

I have a 690 LRVSK kit I'm trying to sell which has the type 2 plunge and standard base. Not sure how you'd feel about having a second router. I actually have three 690s right now. The other two are non plunge dedicated for my dovetail jig.

Vark - if you have the single speed version  -  I would not spend any more money on it.   I’d put the $100+ towards a variable speed plunge router, preferably from someone who still makes routers  Wink

The 6931 is the plunge base for that router. Type 1, Type 2, or Type 8 will all work just fine; as was noted earlier, the "Type" change was minimal.

I just sold one earlier today on eBay for $81. I plan to list another one (coincidentally, a Type 2) tomorrow, if the Second Chance Offer I sent to the guy who bid $80 doesn't get taken. If I do, I can let you know.

Actually, I just went ahead and listed it.  Here's the link, if you're interested.

Right now on the sale thread there is a complete 690 kit including the plunge base.

I did the same form my dovetail jig.  I no longer avoid the dovetail joint.  The setup is almost immediate.

Mine was kind of happenstance.  Both were garage sale finds.  I use the one with variable speed for the dovetail bit, and the very old one (has a real toggle switch) for the straight bit.  I like to be able to double check the first joint before doing the rest, or do a test piece if I think I need to (usually don't with the Akeda).

I don't know about others experience but I had a 690 combo kit. The router and fixed base were fine, the plunge base was not. The plunge action was sticky and required too much effort, the base would move a little while I was pushing down. I tried lubing the plunge tubes and everything else I could think of. I sold those and bought an 890 kit. The fixed base of the 890 is mediocre though the dust collecting handle helps. The plunge base for the 890 is MUCH better.
