    Powerful

    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.

    Don't Expect good service

    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

    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.

    Good machine but could be better

    Should come with the 1/4 inch collet and not have to order it separately.

    Incredible Power

    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.

    Well made motor

    This is a perfect fit to my router table. Will power through your continuous feeding of material and than some. Have not use the variable speeds, but like the ideal of having that option.

    Perfect match for my Kreg lift table!

    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.

    Motor w/muscle

    I bought this motor to provide the routing muscle for my new router table with lift. The speed select controls and on/off switch are easy to reach....much easier to manipulate than a lesser HP Porter Cable router that I own. Electronic speed control keeps the motor turning at a steady RPM under all loads.

    Just the motor

    Recommended for building your next table router setup or replacing an existing router on a table. Plows through the work and does not slow down. Perfect for my furniture and cabinet work. Workhorse.

    Awesome power at a great price

    Installed in a Woodpeckers router table. This thing is practically a shaper.

    Porter Cable Router Motor

    I have a small, custom cabinet/furniture shop. My 7518 is one of five routers in my shop. I've had this router for a year now. This router stays mounted under a Jessem router table with a Jessem Master XL lift. What a combination! Fantastic. This router is powerful. Feed stock as fast as you want. It spins large bits with ease. Slow start, selectable speeds and electronically controlled power make this router easy to use and operate (I believe safer too). The 7518 may be Porter-Cable's best router effort. I highly recommend it.

    Good for your router table

    Works great for a router table if you cannot afford a good shaper.

    Jessem Router Table and PC 7518

    The Porter Cable 7518 and the Jessem router table are a dream come true. Powerful, safe, accurate, stable and a joy to use. This router motor replaces the PC 893 which does not fit the Jessem table like the PC 7518.

    The way to go

    This router has so much power that it never strains. The small runnout makes for very smooth cuts.
