    Bought the 7518 last year and have it set up in my Kreg table using the Kreg router lift. Amazed at the power. Never bogs down, all operations are smooth. No problems right out of the box. Wish I had bought one sooner! Highly recommended upgrade.

    The new router appeared to have all parts when unpackaged. The Collet did not have any threads in it. Calls to Porter Cable customer service in Ft Worth Texas was useless. They told me I was wrong and refused to offer any assistance. After numerous calls and getting blown off, I got one on by own.

    P-C 7518 Router - Disapointing

    Comments about Porter-Cable 3-1/4 HP Router Motor Only Model #75182 :

    I just purchased a Porter-Cable 7518 router and the while the router itself may be excellent, the two wrenches are very poorly done. They are pressed from sheet metal, the surfaces of the jaws that meet the collett are rough with no attempt to machine them, and the wreches are not sized well the fit the collett.

    This motor has great power. It is perfect for use in a router table with a lift. Mine is mounted in an Incra PRL-V2. The 5 speeds and soft start are great.

    Perfect match for my Kreg lift table!

    Comments about Porter-Cable 3-1/4 HP Router Motor Only Model #75182 :

    I bought this to mount in the Kreg 420 router table lift, which is specifically designed for use with the Porter Cable 7518. This gives it all the routing versatility and features to allow for a range of routing speeds and fine-tuned accuracy for virtually any router bit from very fine work to hogging off large amounts of material with power routing. The thumb-dial adjustment wheel means no more back-straining adjustments and the quick-adjust lever means rapid change over of bits and quick setting to rough height adjustments. All in all, a near perfect marriage of functionality and performance.
