Product Description

Amazon.com

The JessEm Rout-R-Slide Sliding Router Table allows you to move the router, not the stock. Mounting the router to a sliding carriage, it enables it to travel in a straight line in the center of the table. The fence also moves, swiveling up to 45 degrees in either direction. With more precision and versatility than a traditional router table, the Rout-R-Slide makes dovetails of any size, angle, and spacing, sliding dovetails, box joints, mortise and tenon joints, stopped dadoes, and edge trimming. It features 18 different aluminum extrusions and a 14-inch stroke capacity with adjustable stops. This sliding router table comes with a 1-year warranty.

From the Manufacturer

Move the router, not your stock, with Rout-R-Slide. It mounts the router to a sliding carriage, enabling it to travel in a straight line in the center of the table. The fence also moves, swiveling up to 45 degrees in either direction. Just two simple design changes create a routing system that gives you versatility and precision, and it can still do everything a traditional router table can, and a whole lot more. You can make dovetails of any size, angle, and spacing; sliding dovetails; box joints; mortise and tenon joints; stopped dadoes; and edge trimming. It makes easy work of your toughest jobs. There's no more having to maneuver the wood through the table center for joint cutting, just position the wood and slide the router. It's that simple.

I am not usually one to "promote" products, but this table is amazing. Like a grand piano, this machine allows you to produce works of beauty, and it is wonderfully attractive as well. It has quickly become the heart of my woodshop. I have used several "traditional" tables, where the router stays still and the wood is moved across the blade. But for years, I knew there just had to be a better way. When I wanted to rout a dado, I used to have to do it free-hand; to cut dovetails across a 1x10 or a 1x12 I needed a jig; and I simply could not cut box joints on anything over 1x6. There are many other examples of limitations that exist when you can't get the router out across the wood far enough with a table.
The Jess-Em table is an amazing breakthrough. It allows you to be very creative about how you do routing because you can reach just about any spot on your boards -- you're not limited to the edges as you are with traditional tables. The way it does this is by having the router slide through the middle of the table. You control it with a handle, connected to a router base plate. You either push the router through the wood from front to rear, or you pull it through the wood from rear to front. You can also, if you want, use it like a traditional table, where the router remains stationary and you slide the wood over it. The fence, which is composed of high-grade aluminum, adjusts to all possible angles, and can be moved to either the back or the sides of the table, thus providing a straight-edge anywhere you need it. The splinter guard allows excellent visibility, and can be moved in many positions relative to the wood.
The overall craftsmanship is tremendous. Starting with the directions, everything is done with care.

At $400 this routing table isn't cheap, but on the sound recommendation of a trusted professional tool rep. I decided to give the Jessem table a try.
First, I'll comment on the construction. Simply put - It's first class. This table enjoys the same attention to detail I put into my work. I can't say that about many "off-the-shelf" products manufactured today. It falls into the same mfg. category as Powermatic tools (read high end detailing). However, at 40lbs, this is not a big and heavy table or shaper base. It provides the advanced craftsmen or woodworker with a way to produce finesse and precise routed product.
All-in-one flexibility is where this table really shines. When I'm asked to consider the benefits of "all-in-one products I usually assume "it does many things, but it doesn't do anything well.
I'm happy to say this isn't the case with the Jessem table. As a high end craftsmen, I produce a variety of woodwork - ever more difficult and challenging. The Jessem has yet to fall short. It's joint making flexibility is outstanding.
Because you move the router using micrometer like adjusters, you can produce accuracy you can't achieve with handheld routers and jigs. Plus, to shape an edge you simply lock down the router and use the unit like a standard routing table.
The bottom line is this... If I could afford only one routing tool this would be it. If I could afford more, but I needed a place to start, the Jessem table would be my first step.
Happy woodworking - I hope this helps,
Ben

After reading the above reviews I am shocked at the poor quality of this table.
After recieving the table I was quite excited. However, the excitment went to disappointment as I removed one part after another.
First the base. Constructed of oak, it is clear that the pieces were run through a planer with very dull knives as gouges were taken out of half of the parts. The bolts did not match and 2 were actually short. The edges were sharp and you need to be careful not to catch any splinters. You will need to sand over the edges before handling.
As far as the table mechanism itself the aluminum scales were scratched, dinged and showed signs of wear. Two of the brackets for the fence were actually different models. The support bracket for the plastic gaurd was actually pitted and weathered with some of the anodizing coming off.
I called Jess-em and they could not understand how I would get such poor quality and suggested that the dealer had misused this product before I recieved it. They assured me that it was not Jess-Em's normal quality and indicated they would send me an entire new table.
When I recieved the new table, Although the legs were no longer gouged, most of the same scratches, dings, etc were there. I called again and the person then asked me to describe the problems. I started with the pitting in the support bracket. She went to thier inventory and actually looked at their part stock. She agreed that the bracket was pitted discollered, etc However, she said that it was not Jess-Em's quality rather it was a problem from their supplier. As far as the scratches, mostly from handling in their own shop.
She finally asked if I was from Canada. I said no. She said "Canadians are very fussy about this stuff. Most Americans are not."
I would not recomend this product.
