    Bosh, Dewalt, or PC router for JessEm lift.

    I bought a router lift and neither of my routers fit. Its the Jessem 20310 so an 3 1/2 router is needed. Out of the following three which would you choose?

    1. Porter-cable 890 series
    2. Bosh 1617
    3. Dewalt 618



    A craftsman is listed as fitting as well but with my bad luck from the table saw I prefer not to purchase from them. Out of these three which would you choose. Specs are pretty close across all three, and I don't have a brand loyalty to any of them. If you can suggest another one that fits for under $200(max) I am willing to take a look.

    PC, I've used other brands, PC has never failed me, and I'm talking the 600 series, 800 series look really nice but 690 is what I got..

    Another vote for PC. PC superior race. Also, make sure you get the offset collet wrench for easier bit changes from the top of the table.

    I've had a Craftsman, Skil, and now a Bosch. Out of the three, the Skil and Bosch were standouts. Bosch is on our little table now, use the Skil for cutting circles and baffles and such.

    I cannot compare to the others, but picked up a PC 890.. I have a feeling we're going to make lots of wonderful saw dust together.

    FYI, Porter Cable and Dewalt are both owned by the same parent company. The Dewalt router is actually built by Porter Cable.
