Where's My Porter Cable Model Number?
Porter Cable uses a pretty standard model/type system for their tools. The majority of their tools have the model number on a nameplate or warning label located on the side or the bottom of the tool. On some tools, such as air compressors, the model number is usually located on the top of the equipment. The location has become more standard over the years, so be prepared to do a little bit of sleuthing if your model is a little older. On the plus side, once you have located the nameplate or warning lable, Porter Cable makes it pretty clear to identify the model, listing them alongside the words “model”.
With a lot of their models you will also see a “type” number. It is very important that you take note of this number. The type number identifies the version of a particular model. In some instances the type number will follow a dash in the model number, for example an HFAC3030-1 is a Type 1 tool. Keep in mind that the parts for a type 2 model can be, and often are, greatly different than those of a type 1.
Once you have search for, and correctly identified, your model the results will list the various types to choose from.
In some instances the type number will follow a dash in the model number, for example an HFAC3030-1 is a Type 1 tool.
The most common place you’ll find these numbers is on the nameplate or warning label.

How Are We Doing?
I just wanted to thank you for the great video on how to repair a Porter-Cable router. I broke the spindle pin on my router and had to disassemble it to get the chuck off. Your video was exactly what I needed to make the repair. It took a while, but seeing what had to be done before completing the project was priceless Thanks again.

Tools on Display
Porter Cable developed the first portable belt sander, as well as the first helical drive circular saw, and portable band saw. In 1996, the Smithsonian Institution began collecting many of the tools they’ve made in their long history, making them the first power tool company to have such a collection. The collection includes an unusual array of company artifacts, such as their original inventions, photographs, and even a bowling trophy from the 1930s.
