Rated 2 out of 5 by from Excellent tool, until it wears out I bought a Porter=Cable 890 router in 2006. It's been a great tool, in my router table and also for handheld work. In 2019, after moving it in and out of the Table, I finally ordered a second one for convenience and compatibility. The new one is called "Model 892-Type3." Both are identical form factors, so the bases are compatible. BTW, I'm just a retired handyman-- not a pro. . Until now, both performed equally well. Today I noticed the newer router motor getting quite noisy-- probably time for new bearings. Hey, it's got a three-year warranty so that's pretty good. . However, the mfr tells me they will NOT cover worn-out bearings because that is "normal wear and tear." That leaves me with a router motor that may die soon, and a repair cost of $135 (plus shipping) if I want it repaired. My credit card provider offers extended warranty support, but they won't help until after the three years are up! What use is the Porter Cable Three Year Warranty??? Not a good feel.

I've used in a couple of Rockler tables, a JESSEM table and a custom one. Only real potential thing is that some tables require an insert, but none of mine have yet.

I want to use Router Guide Bushings on this router. Does the router base this comes with fit Router Guide Bushings, or do I have to purchase the "Frequently Bought Together" center hole router sub-base?
Asked by: MDJ
If you have a Porter Cable router base already, then the guide bushings will fit. If you have a router by another manufacturer, chances are that the guide bushings will fit because PC is the standard in the industry.

I currently have a Porter Cable 690 that I use exclusively in my shop as a hand held router but also in my router table. I'd like to upgrade to this model. Will it fit the same router plate as the 690 or will I have to buy a new router plate for my router table?
Asked by: Sawdust
It should fit fine.

I'm using this in a CNC Shark router machine.How long can I expect to be able to run it before it over heats?

Asked by: Dave
I too have a Shark, and the 891 has been my work horse router for the last few years. I've gone thru 2 sets of bushing, but have never had an overheat problem. But I do keep the RPMs down 12-16K usually, and my feeds and speeds at settings that give me a long life on the bits. So that may affect that. but I've run 20+ hour jobs and never had an overheat.

Asked by: ajl
No, only 1/4" & 1/2" shank collets are supplied with it. You'll have to order a 3/8" shank collet separately.
