Pros
Easy To Use
Value for the money
A lot of features for the money eg aluminum top and plate, fence, feather boards, stop switch. Assembly was straightforward, it took me ~2 hrs, considerable time spent on leveling the router plate.
Improvement needed: 1)Mitre slot is slightly wider than .75in, my standard mitre gauge and feather boards need to be shimmed to fit snuggly, 2)The spacers used with the supplied feather boards and bit guard are a pain because they are not afixed to the said equipment eg if you need to remove the bit guard the spacers will fall off their bolts, 3)When used in the horizontal position (mitre slot), the feather boards are secured by bolts that go through slotted holes in the bottom of the mitre slot, so you are constrained wrt their position.

Pros
Easy To Use
Exactly what was wanted
I use this for general home projects. I wanted a sturdy, safe and precise bench for my Dewalt router and this is precisely what I wanted. I did expect metal sides, but the heavy gauge plastic should give long life.

Pros
Easy To Use
Mostly good
I like this table, and it was easy to put together and use. Like some have commented the table top is somewhat warped. The first one I got was about 1/16th of an inch low on one side. CPO was really good about sending me out another one, and that one was less warped, and I decided to keep it largely because for this price I figured it was a good deal. So far I haven't noticed any problems because of the warpage, but I hope I don't come to regret this in the future. Surprisingly, when I called Bosch about this, they said that the table has been discontinued and no parts are available for it, even though it's still listed for sale on their website. Go figure.

Pros
Easy To Use
So So Router Table
Average Product, Easy to assemble, Storage Pocket falls out. Thought it was German made, not so. Made in [*]. Disappointed. Router Base plate is not perfectly flat. Have to do several adjustments to make almost perfect cuts. Nothing perfect about this item. For the average do-it yourselfer i would recommend this. For the professionals, suggest you look elsewhere

Pros
Easy To Use
Nothing else comes close at this price
So many good things to say, but one of the best things is the ability to level the mounting plate with the rest of the table. This avoids so many problems while working. Unit is well built, reasonably priced, and sits high above the competition. Little extras like a cord wrap and storage pouch show a great deal of thought went into the design. You would have to spend another 4 - 5 -$600 to improve on this design. Very useful, very functional, very user friendly. A great product.

Pros
Easy To Use
Great table!
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!

Great Product!
I used it with my Porter & Cable router and it connected effortlessly. I then used it to rout edges on picture framing stock to countersink a backing material so it would be recessed. It was very easy to use and did a perfect job.

will this work with my Ryobi R163 router?
Charlie on May 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you go to the Bosch Tools factory website, you can download the user
manual for this router table, and on page 14 is a schematic of the
baseplate. The next page shows known compatible routers‹and there are Ryobi
R161 and R162 routers listed. Perhaps you can go to the Ryobi factory
website, and see if the baseplate of the R163 matches the R161 or R162, and
that should answer your question.

Your two router tables are so similar that it is difficult to choose. I see the slight specification differences but there must be some intention behind making two similar products. Do they accept different routers? Are there subtle feature differences? Is one a higher quality tool than the other?
