Comments about Router Table:

I purchased this table because of the Porter Cable name of quality and that had metal work surface. I had one minor assembly problem and that hole not lining-up on the dust shut attachment.
I also think they could included a feather board.

    Comments about Router Table:

    I want to use a half-round to cut a grove into the center of the the bottom of a fret board. The chips fall right into the opening of the router so, I need to figure out how to keep the chips out of the inside of the router. That is my only problem so far.

    Comments about Router Table:

    I've been working with a table saw, mitre saw, hand drills and a sander. I saw what a router could do and thought I could build better projects with it under a table. I like the porter cable 698 because it had a metal top. I did not know the stand was metal, but was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box. It went together very easily and I did not have to level anything. I was confused when I called CPO requesting information regarding what routers would fit this table and no one could give me any models except the porter cables. Really? You would think that with all the equipment they sell, someone might know. So I had to do research myself and found an article in popular mechanics that reviewed some of the model routers I was interested in. This helped a lot. I was also disappointed that the table came with very little safety equipment. It did have a flimsy shield attached to one side of the fences, but it just seemed to get in the way. So I picked up a piece of hardwood and some T track and built my own fence. This way I can use feather boards to keep material where it's supposed to be and my hands away from the moving parts, especially the bit. I did use the table and router to build it and was happy how it performed. It is easy to move from point A to point B and my router allows for above the table bit chanes. I know the more I use it the better I'll get to know it's capabilities. CPO, get your staff up to speed on product knowledge. I would have probably bought my router from you too, if the guy on the phone would have suggested a couple of models that would have fit the table. I did get hung up on when I asked and was put on hold. Oh well, your loss.

          This product is very modifiable, with multiple starting pin locations and quick-adjust split-fence design with independently adjustable halves. It has the specifications on the page, but all of the reviews for it are positive, so I would assume this product delivers. You don't say exactly the size of the routers that you want to fit, so I can't precisely answer your question. Thank you.
