        Comments about Benchtop Router Table:

        This is a decent piece of equipment, but I think they could have done better on the feather boards. The way they attach to the workbench is way more trouble than they need to be. Aftermarket feather boards are a lot easier to use. That's my only criticism so far.

            Really nice table, very large and accommodates a number of different routers. A lot of adjustability but not overcomplicated.

            Only negative is I thought the sides were cast aluminum also but they're plastic. Not really a big deal but expected to be heavier than it is.

            Overall works really great and I wouldn't change anything!

              Comments about Benchtop Router Table:

              I have a Bosch 1617EVSPK combination router, have used it for several projects - medicine cabinets in which the shelves go into slots, hinge mortising for three new bedroom doors (with a door hinge mortising kit), and a mounting base for a Hanukkah menorah made from an old wooden hockey stick. I realized after these that some of them would have been a lot easier with a router table, so got this one. It was easy to assemble except for leveling the mounting plate, which is pretty tricky. I still don't have it quite right, but it works fine at this point, having just done a bunch of rabbeting for a table frame. It is a pleasure to use. I was able to insert and change router bits without removing the router or the mounting plate from the table. The wrenches get in from under the table and the bit drops in from the top. Height adjustment was really easy. If you position the router on the plate the right way, there is a hole in the plate that aligns with the access to height adjustment from the top of the table. The 1617EVS router comes with a T-wrench for this. No extra accessories needed. The fixed base works just fine. Two things could be better, otherwise it would get five stars. The dust collection port is not too effective, and lots of chips accumulate under the table and off to the side, but it is not a big problem, just a little extra cleanup when you are done. Also, it would be nicer if the switch would be on the right side of the front panel instead of the left, since that would make getting the wrenches in position easier. Nice addition to a very small shop, only about 110 square feet, but I found a spot for it.

                Q:

                I bought theRA 1181 router bench table with the 1617 router and I cannot match the holes up to mount the router or the holder to the plate on the bench top. These are compatible correct? Can you send me a better diagram because when I follow the instructions nothing matches up....Thanks
