I haven't been able to use this newly purchased table yet because I learned that there isn't any standard when it comes to different brands of routers and tables. I did not see this noted anywhere on the description of this table. I had hoped to attach my Porter Cable to this Craftsman table but the mounting holes don't line up. I will look at using my router base as a template to drill new holes and see if that works. So unless you are using a Craftsman router, you might look to your own brand for a table.

This craftsman router table is a great size to fit right on top of and existing workbench or by itself on the floor. The double outlet switch lets me run the router along with my shop vacuum at the same time so this is no time for shavings to collect. As far as I can tell the table is sturdy and reliable.
nice router table, unit was easy to assemble and built very sturdy, I have not used the table much since I just got it but tried some different bits and it was much easier to move the wood than moving the router
For an entry level table this does well. I have a craftsman router so it mounts into the table easily. The legs are lightweight plastic but reasonably strong. I strongly recommend fastening this table down with screws or temporarily with clamps or it will walk on you. The dust collection works well. The fence is the weakest area on this table. It is a two piece fence so you have to line it up perfectly or you'll have a seam to get hung up on or a change in depth which will cause ripples and burn marks in the wood. Bottom line: you get what you pay for, and for $60-$80 for this table you're doing better than what the other stores will sell you.
I am pretty new to wood working and I bought my first router last week. I bought this table a few days ago and used it for the first time today. As soon as I started, I thought my router's blades were bad or I was doing something horribly wrong. The top of the fence, the pictures of the attached featherboards, EVERYTHING, says the feed direction should be from right to left, so without even looking at my blade's direction that's what I was doing. I couldn't hold on to my workpiece for anything. Every inch was a battle and I quickly lost confidence that I'd stay out of the ER. Then it donned on me what was going on. I LOOKED at my blade direction, then started feeding the correct way and all was well. My router is a Craftsman (The 2 HP combo fixed/plunge base model), so I can't imagine why or how this happened. I'll just say BE CAREFUL and don't blindly follow the table's stickers. Aside from that mixup, the table seems to be OK. It's small, probably small enough that it will only serve me for a short time before I want to upgrade. The legs are "Ok," probably one of the first things I"ll be doing is building a base cabinet and putting the tabletop on it without the legs. The fence and featherboard adjustments seem a little finicky to me, but for the most part I think they'll do. I like the second outlet for the shop vac, I wasn't expecting that. Like said before, this table is best suited for the light user and/or beginner...and that's what it's meant (And priced) for.

For those looking for a professional level table, keep looking. It is a decent table for using smaller bits for moldings, etc. Assembly was easy, about 20 mins. +/- Only problem incurred was mounting a router to it. I used a 25+ year old Craftsman router. The screw pattern actually matched up, but the screws provided were way too long. Had to go to ****** to get shorter screws. I needed a smaller router/table to do some finish work inside the house. My "professional" setup was too big/heavy/bulky to bring into the house. Everyone must remember the name "Craftsman" is not what it was 20-40 years ago just like so many other valued names. I owned one of the "good ones" from that era and this one has better features. I have looked for 3 months comparing prices and features. This seems to be the best of the lot.
Since this was a Craftsman router table, maybe I expected too much. It was sold as a discontinued item and was reduced. The table area is too small and too light. It could have been made with a thicker grade of material.
