7529 Router Review
This router from Porter-Cable has a smooth motor with comfortable handles and a smooth plunge
This midsize plunge router has a smooth motor with comfortable handles and a smooth plunge. Its plunge-lock lever is spring-loaded and easy to access while the tool is operating. In addition to the basic optional fence, Porter-Cable also offers a microadjustable fence that’s one of the best available. The dust port works well. This router has a bizarre trigger switch and lock-on device. It’s on the handle but is difficult to manipulate without reaching over with your other hand to help. Another oddity is that the depth rod rotates instead of the turret; we had a tough time grabbing the knob at the top of the rod and thought it was a little dangerous to grab the bottom of the rod, at least while the bit was running.
