I was using my Porter Cable 690 router mounted in a router table, using a 1/4 straight cut bit, routing grooves for a panel to fit in. The bit snaped and fell INTO the router! I unpluged it and ran. When it finaly stopped i took the router motor out and dumped out the broken bit and a handfull of plastic and copper wire.
My question is; Has this happend to anyone else?
Why would Porter Cable make the air vents that large? I went monday and bought a Bosch 1617 router. The first thing i checked was the vent size and it has small screen size vents.
690 owners beware!
