It seems like we’ve been making a lot of hardwood trim in the Toolmonger shop recently, so we’re looking for a quality router table. This Bosch model came up in discussion recently, and we’d love to hear your thoughts about it. As much as it looks like a floor-standing unit, it’s actually a bench-top model. The top is 25″ x 15-1/2″ and the holes you see in the base allow you to bolt it to your bench.
The router mount plate is aluminum, as is the fence, though the fence also includes adjustable MDF components. The two featherboards in the picture come with it and help to protect against kickback. It also includes two dust collection ports.
It’s pre-drilled for a variety of Bosch routers as well as some models from DeWalt, Milwaukee, Makita, and Hitachi — check the specs online for a full list of models. We’d buy a router specifically for the table, so that gives us lots of options.
Street pricing starts around $170.
