Porter Cable Router Recall
This recall notice was sent to me by John Bronson, who is a member of the Guild's Executive Board.  Thanks John for watching out for the safety of our members who  might have this tool.
  "H
i Don,
I don’t know if you are aware of this, but Porter-Cable has issued a recall for their 3-1/4 HP fixed-base routers.  The issue is with the non-insulated (aluminum) handles on the fixed base could present a shock hazard.  Here is a link with the details.

 I own one of these routers, but I keep mine mounted to my router table.  I never use it with a base."

If the links does not work, try this link Porter-Cable has recalled over 100,000 routers in the 3-1/4 H.P. family
