Looking for a quality router table

Recommended Posts

I am looking to get a good router table for my garage. I don't need a lift, I just need the table, fence, and stand. My router setup will consist of a Porter-Cable 7538 with Router Raizer installed. This is a pretty big router so a good top and mounting plate that won't sag would be ideal. I am not interested in something that mounts to another tool/table I just want a stand alone floor standing unit. I have heard the phenolic tops can be hard to work with/hit or miss so I would probably go with a cast iron top if I can.

 

Any suggestions?

Honestly I’d shoot over to a Rockler or Woodcraft if you have one and check out what they have, quite a few table set ups, the Incra are supposed to be pretty good

I am thinking I would probably go with either the Benchdog cast iron, SawStop cast iron, or Jet cast iron. All have their pros and cons. I am leaning more towards the Benchdog because it includes the correct mounting plate for my specific router. It may not include wheels, an on/off switch, or a lift but I already have a lift kit that is compatible, the wheels shouldn’t be too hard to add, and there are plenty of on/off switches available. The switch should be reasonably easy to install.
