Best router I own
This is the newest of the 4 routers I own.
I was looking for a router that i can securely control. The "D" handle with the secondary knob does the trick.
Routers tend to be top heavy, with smallish handles down low. So when you run off an edge or have to extend your arms the whole tool tends to tip, meaning taking off material you wish you hadn't.
The "D" handle control keeps it flat and the side knob controls side-to-side. Love It!

Dependable and Proven Router!
I originally purchased this Router 16 years ago, it is a dependable and proven router. I've always preferred D-Handle over regular Fixed Base, it gives better control. This router can handle any handheld task that doesn't require plunging and has plenty of power. I like it so much, I now own 2 of them. This router was also the main router used by Norm Abram on The New Yankee Workshop. Highly recommended.

Porter Cable routers have always been the best! :-)
I have won awards in 3 states and have been a cabinetmaker for 45 years. I have used many different brands over the years, nothing holds a candle to Porter Cable routers!!!! Nothing!

D-Handle provides excellent control
I purchased the router mainly for dovetails and the Dhandle makes it excellent for that purpose and probably for other jobs. I also have a 3 1/2 H.P. Porter Cable Router and there is no stopping it. I highly recommend both for anyone who is considering purchasing a router. I was also pleased with how quick I received my purchase.

I now have four of theses Routers
Great balance, easy to change bits, easy to dial in depth of cut, plenty of power for most things. I have three Porter Cable routers of this size and one big one, they are all great.

Better than ever
I love the D handle 691 router. My last one finally got too hard to tighten and I have to "trust" my settings as I work with expensive hardwoods in trim work and furniture. My last one went about 20 years. This new one has some minor improvements and I got it slightly cheaper than what I paid 20 years ago.

if installed under table can you adjust bit from above?
A shopper on Apr 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not directly from the top like some high-end router table base plate does, like a Jessem, or the Bosch combo PCBN895PK. But since this one adjusts by rotating the entire motor, it's fairly easy to loosen the lock bolt and rotate the motor to set fine depth. The D-Handle may not fit some router tables.
Will the Porter Cable 6931 plunge base fit this router?

BEST ANSWER: No it will not
