Porter-Cable Router Edge Guide

Appearances: Episodes 9802, 9803


I was surprised that after three or four times through the episodes I hadn't caught this until my April '07 run through. I just didn't remember Norm using anything but the fancy, schmancy 42-690 (or-700) with any of his routers. I had to go dig up a picture.

It turns out there are at least a couple of model numbers for what appears to be the same edge guide. Checking my own manuals confirms—the 690 and 693 use the 42160 and the 691 uses a 39120. The difference is in the spacing between the bars. Otherwise, I'm not going to break my neck trying to differentiate the indistinguishable.
