Ratings & Reviews
The 334 sq.-in. Router table features a smooth, oversized table (14-1/8 x 23-5/8 in.) and is 11-1/4 in. tall, providing clearance for most fixed and plunge base routers. Above-the-table height adjustment makes it easy to adjust bit height. An integrated safety switch, with two outlets, has a total capacity of 20 Watts and a switch shield prevents dust from accumulating in the sockets. An extended fence feature can be adjusted 3-3/4 in. forward and backward to provide maximum support for the work piece. The miter gauge adjusts from 0-60 degrees in both directions for increased stability and the fastening holes (11/32 in. diameter) allow the Router Table to be fixed to a stable work surface. A 2-1/2 in. dust extraction port has also been included for easy cleanup.

Good table but you may not be able to mount a non Craftsman router to the base. Make sure you check your router mounting pattern with the base before you go to the trouble of assembling the table.
I have used this table for a few projects and everything works well. I like the adjustability of the fence. I also really like the hook-up for attaching a shop vac to suck up the debris. Works very well. The safety is easy to use also which is great.
I had an old table that I threw out a couple of years ago and needed a new one. This table has so much more features that it is not even comparable to the old one!
This is my first router table, so I don't have a whole lot to compare it too. But for around $50, you'll never find another router table that even comes close to this one. What really drew me to this table was the fence. On other router tables I've looked at, the fence is in two pieces which I feel would make adjustments difficult. I like the fact this fence is one solid piece. The fence also slides out on the left side for jointing, and it has a dust collection port that really cuts down on the dust. The table includes a miter slot, which I haven't used yet and don't know when I will, but it's nice to have. I use this table with the craftsman 12 amp 2 hp router which is perfect because the table has a hole that lines up with the routers height adjustment, making above the table adjustments a little easier. The top of my table was also true and square. There are only two negatives, well maybe three, I can see. First off, the measurements on the table aren't inline with the fence and don't really make a whole of sense. Secondly, there's no plastic insert for the hole in the top, which can prevent problems for routing smaller items. Finally, the last (possible) negative, is the fact that the table surface is small. All in all, for $50 you can't beat this router table. I noticed that the next model up includes feather boards for 10 dollars more, which probably means they are phasing this model out, and for an extra 10 bucks the feather boards would be worth it.
The router table works as advertised. I have craftsman router model 17543 and it fits perfectly (as it should). Both the fixed and the plunge bases can be used to mount the router. Above-the-table height adjustment does not really works, but I wasn't surprised. This is not table, but rather issue with the fixed router base. I have solved the problem by adding a DIY router lift (using the plunge base from the router) without modifying the table and it works great.
For casual use novices, and you buy it on sale, you can't go wrong. I like the one main switch that controls router motor and vacuum at the same time. Yes it's small, light and cheap but again, depending on your use and needs, it fits some some people well.
