Default Can't Get PC 690 Cut Depth Adjustment Ring to Work

Thanks for the replies. I understand now. My previous router had a
micro adjust feature and I somehow assumed this more expensive and
more widely used router would too.

From my perspective this isn't a very practical way to do fine
adjustments under the router table. Even hand held it seems like it
would be awfully easy to bump it out of position. Oh, well. Thanks
again for the clarification.

First, this router isn't really designed for fine adjustments while in a
router table. I have the PC 690, but I also have a PC 8529 that goes in the
router table. This router is designed for above the table micro adjustment.
If you want to do micro adjustment on your router, you're going to need a
router lift, but honestly, by the time you do that, you could get a plunge
router with a micro-adjust feature for about the same price.

Second, I've always used the ring as a relative rather than an absolute
guide. Say I'm at a particular setting and I do a test cut and need to go
another 1/8" deeper. I set the ring at zero and then rotate the router
until it gets to 1/8. Again, it isn't designed to tell you exactly how deep
your cut is.

Unless you don't want a router lift in which cae, learn to adjust the 690. I
use one in a table and have no problem at all.
