Product Description

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.

  • 334 sq-in. Smooth laminate work surface

  • Integrated safety switch with duplex outlet
  • Integrated switch shield prevents dust from accumulating in the sockets
  • Extended, adjustable fence
  • 2-1/2 in. Dust extraction port

Router Table
I have just purchased this table, that was bundled with a router. The table was easy to assemble and the router attached very smoothly. The only problem I ran into was the miter track (factory installed) screws stood proud. I ran a grinding stone over them and now the miter runs over it smoothly. The dust collection system works very well. As I started to make the stiles and rails for the cabinets I am making I didn't have the huge clean up as with my old table. I think you should consider this table.

You get what you pay for....
I really wanted to rate this higher but can't. The nice things on this table include the power switch assembly and the ability to screw it to a bench and not just clamp it (I had another brand that was like that). I also like that the fence extends out a bit and can move forward for joining. Lastly for the good, the dust collection on this thing is a good size. My other table had a smaller collection port and was a pain, this thing is a good size thankfully. The box was in great shape but when I got everything out of the box, the table top was damaged from manufacturing/handling. The quality of the top (even though this is an economy-line model it should be somewhat high quality) was poor. The covering has chips in it and the holes for the screws look like a kangeroo drilled them. The routing job done on the bottom where the router base goes is so horribly out-of-round I ended up going over it with my own to make it flat, smooth, and round. The paint around the lip of the table is so thin it'll need another coat to prevent swelling. As far as manuals go, this one is not too bad, not too great. Some things are listed but never mentioned, and they don't give you that handy "tools needed" list. But that really isn't a big deal. The quality of the plastic pieces looks like the factory did not buff off the seams from where it was molded, leaving extremely sharp edges. I had to push a screw through with a block because the plastic was obstructing the whole. Also, the metal track for the miter gauge is starting to corrode already. I haven't tried to clean it yet, but it looks like its been outside for awhile. Overall, I understand I get what I paid for and this isn't going to be the highest quality product. But coming from Craftsman I expect just a bit more as far as quality goes. Because of the cost and what I'll be using it for, it was easier to complain and then fix the flaws myself instead of returning it, but even for a starter table, people deserve a bit better. I would suggest saving a few more dollars and upgrading to table that might have a bit more quality. You don't have to break the bank, but you get what you pay for so keep that in mind.

Good Table For Craftsman Routers

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

Decent table for the money

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

Far exceeds my expectations

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!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A great router table for an unbelievable price

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great for small jobs

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Grab it on sale!

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
