There must be a better way.
At first glance the table is quite solid . However the manner in which the router is attached is very poor and lacks any consistent positioning. The doco says it fits most routers but I've found it virtually impossible to accurately attach a router to the table. I'm very dissappointed.
Purchased in February 2020.
This Router Table is so poorly constructed that it is near impossible to get accurate and square cuts. The sliding table is not flush with the stationary table and it also slides poorly. The clamping system moves out of square when tightened. I cannot recommend strongly enough to buy something else.
Poor quality. High price.
This is vastly over-priced for the quality. It has several faults. Some faults can be fixed – for a price – and some I just can’t see a cure for.
I got this table from Machinery House (Hare and Forbes). Their service was excellent. This is the same router table that Axminster sell in England and the price is the same at current exchange rates. I paid almost $500 including shipping ($42). I’d advise you to check out the reviews at Axminster as well.
It arrives on a cardboard pallet, in a tightly packed cardboard box....The assembly instructions are just about useless. You need to look at the pictures and hope you’re doing the right thing. At $500 surely they could get an Australian to write out decent instructions in real English with meaningful photos. Once I’d built the table frame, it was extremely stable and I was impressed by that. I wasn’t impressed that two holes which had to line up were over 12mm out. I finally got the rest of it together by looking at the pictures. The exploded view at the back of the instructions can be a help. The cast iron table is not flat. Now, in my opinion, it’s just about theft to advertise a tool with a cast iron table and then not make sure it’s machined flat. Mine is not too bad – but it’s visibly not flat – but one guy reports getting one that’s 1.5mm out! Can’t fix that.
