A bit ordinary and not up to big jobs

published

Workzone router bits are great and I have already used them on an old Ryobi router. I needed a good bench and should have paid more as this one doesn't have the capacity for heavy and long tasks, just hobby routing of short lines. Ok at the cheap price, but I am back to using a good old timber bench and ancient clamps.

For $42.00 what can one expect, you get what you pay for, in my case I use it around the garage and find it does the job very well. I have even purchased extra cutters. Just follow instructions, take your time and all is good. The guide rail is a bit poor, but its easy to fix that with a few pieces of wood.

Strong metal frame, a bit flimsy attachment of router

published

Good price, same as the Ozito one from bunnings. Not a bad product, but it could do with a better connection piece for the router to the table which is basic and flimsy.

The other annoying thing is the multitude of small bolts to assemble it. Wish they could make a more easier design.

A simple table at a knock down price (£30 at ALDI 2014)

Adjustments can be hit and miss with no proper vernier adjustments (spend 10x more and you get them!!)
Hard to use to make accurate cuts of a chosen size so cut and try and adjust before machining your workpiece
For simple diy tasks it is fine.

I live in the United Kingdom and I am thinking of buying one of these tables and noticed the switch is on the front of the table. My Makita Router has a dead man's switch. My question is how does the table defeat the switch and allow you to start and stop the router from the switch the table?

Fit router to table no bit fitted! switch on, won't start until green button on table switch is pressed in. Power runs from mains to TABLE SWITCH from there to your router. So yes table switch does control the router. Recommend play around with it first, with no bit in it, get familiar with it.
With switch cover down & router running for emergency stop you just hit the flap, switches off straight away. The screws that hold router to table are poor quality, don't last long., suggest be ready to get replacements.
Fence is inaccurate, I used piece of MDF lined it up with a square on table, checking from both sides. Was far better than plastic fence supplied.
I was puzzled by the switch question, so your not alone on this. Took me a while to get my head round it. When I did it was fine.
Good luck with it.

Best regards,

Roger.

Hi Roger,
Thanks for your reply, I will give it a try. I find that most fences are too flimsy like the one on my table saw, so had to make my own. There are plenty of options on youtube.

Hello David, I am from England. Have owned 2 of these tables & have the manual for the one in picture above. Bit of a nightmare to assemble without the manual. You will need it.

Aldi have excellent After Sales Support Tel. No. In England, is,
00800 925 837 88. Dialed in England. Hopefully Australia will have an After Sales Support No. In Australia.

Aldi After Sales Support here is excellent, they even sent me replacement clamps & fasteners free of charge. Hopefully you will be treated same in Australia.
Suggest Tel. or go to your Aldi store ask for After Sales Support Tel. No.
They should send you a manual.

If nothing works for you contact me & I will send you my Manual Free of Charge,
My Email address is rs271945@yahoo.co.uk.

Hopefully Aldi After Sales Support Australia will help you, if not I am your plan B.

Word to the wise, I found nuts bolts poor quality some failed. You can buy better quality replacements locally if needed.

I found fence was inaccurate, not square. Easy answer use piece of wood as fence that is square, (Full length of table) Held in place with 2 F clamps (blocks of wood under table so that jaws of F Clamos can hold evenly) can be accurately squared up with Tri Square. Worked for me could do for you.

Hope this helps,

Best regards,

Roger.

The handles of the Aldi router touch the inside top of the table before the bit is completely through. What to do?
