I've been contemplating getting around to building a router table for far too long. I've been limping by with my tablesaw router insert. I had gotten a great deal on the Bosch 1617 Plunge/Fixed combo a while back. I thought that this would be a good pair, using the fixed base mounted in the table, with above table adjustment, and the plunge base for handheld use.

The table is cast aluminum and it was as square as I was able to measure. The router mount plate is a strong cast aluminum piece as well. It shouldn't sag from leaving a router mounted as I have seen in some other plates. There are adjustment screws for each corner and each edge (a total of 8). This allows you to mount the plate perfectly flush of the table top. The fence is an extruded aluminum piece with adjustable MDF faces. It was square and true. Also included were two 1/16" plastic sheets to slide behind the MDF for using the table as an edge jointer. This is a nice idea for someone starting out, but I prefer a real jointer.

The power switch is a little odd. You lift a plastic lever to turn on a rocker switch. If you press down on the lever at all, it will shut off the switch. This should work well, but I can see a possibility of breaking the plastic lever. That would not prevent the switch from functioning, it would just be harder to turn off.

The featherboards included will be usable and are pretty well designed. The storage area in one leg is a great idea, but it is impossible to put everything not in use in there. I will most likely mount this on top of a rolling cabinet with some drawers. I could also see eventually keeping the aluminum top and replacing the plastic legs with a cabinet. The top should last for a long while.

I bought this table to run a bunch of moulding for several rooms in our house. I have run a couple hundred feet of stock through it now and have to say that it is a good little table for the price, with a couple of caveats.

Assembly was a bit complex, but not to bad. The parts list was rather hopeless for identifying the various bolts but everything was specialized enough that it was pretty obvious what was supposed to fasten "where" when everything was all laid out and compared to the diagrams. (If the parts list had either had actual "real size" illustrations for the hardware, or had sorted the hardware into various plastic baggies with codes on them, it would have been much easier.) I like pictures better than words and the pictures were lavish and detailed. The step-by-step instructions were pretty straightforward as well, once I was able to identify which bolt was which.

The lock nuts that were supposed to keep the bolts to the legs and the main table all failed. All the nuts jiggled out from router vibration and a couple got lost before I noticed the problem. In its favor, it has a total of 8 bolts to mount the table platform to the legs and remained stable during use with 4 of those bolts completely loose! But, it was a simple matter to replace the missing nuts and lock washers (common sizes) and add a little teflon tape wrapped around the all bolt shanks to secure them in place. The original hardware (that wasn't lost) now is holding fine with the addition of the teflon tape under the nuts.

The mounting plate for the router is a nice solid plate with a total of 6 different mounting configurations for various routers. It will mount just about anything on the market, apparently.

I am a novice as this is my first router table. However, I spend a lot of time watching skilled people use tools. Long story short, this is not a cabinet maker's router table. If you're a REAL pro, you probably want to build one that is larger and with better work piece control attachments. But, if you are like me (father of 2 who likes to build stuff like cabinets, benches, desks, etc) then this router table is fantastic!!! The mounting plate is pre-drilled for a number of commercially available routers. The table allows for very precise cuts, the drop in plate is thick steel and easy to adjust, the fence is sturdy and easy to adjust, it comes with three inserts that allow you to use the router/table with a number of different bits and finally, the table is NOT flimsy!

I previously purchased a craftsman router table that I returned because it was flimsy and I would have needed to drill out the drop in plate for my dewalt router. This, in my opinion, would have reduced precision and greatly reduced my satisfaction. For me, you can't beat the quality for the price. IMO, this table is the only one to start with.
