PORTER-CABLE has identified a safety issue with the bases on some 3-1/4 HP fixed base production routers. The router bas does not have insulated gripping surfaces, and could present a shock hazard.

The following models are affected:

PORTER-CABLE Speedmatic 3-1/4 HP Router, Model 7519

PORTER-CABLE Speedmatic 3-1/4 Router with extended chuck, Model 7519EC

PORTER-CABLE Speedmatic High Voltage 3-1/4 HP Router, Model 22-7519-60

Affected models have date codes before 2014 14 and have uninsulated handles on the base.

The model number can be found on the nameplate of the motor or bare base. The date codes can only be found on the motor nameplate. The improved base will be readily identifiable be the insulated gripping surface on the handles.
