« Part 3: Delta 950L Drill Press Part 4 of Setting up a wood shop in my 2 car garage. series Part 5: Delta 37-866 6" Jointer »

Everything ready for assembly:

Stand Complete: The casters are not the set for the Kreg table. They are $4.00 HF items. Not sure how well the will hold the table steady but it’s an easy swap if they don’t work out.

Top Attached:

All of the parts for the fence etc.

Complete and ready to drill the holes to mount the router. The router waiting to be attached is a Porter-Cable 893 2-1/4 HP.

This is a realy nice router table and I would recommend it to anyone.

Kreg makes excellent products. You will enjoy your new router system alot. I replaced the twist knob on the left side with a cam lock from Rockler and found it easier to use. It will spoil you and probably make you want to get a router life with above the table adjustments.

That is a nice router table. I have always been impressed with the quality of Kreg’s products.

Thanks Guys. Greg: The Porter Cable router came with an extention to use with a router table that go’s through the table top and attaches to the highth adjustment on the router that seems to work really well. I’ll post a pic tonight when I get home from work showing the router attached.

Here’s a pic with the router attached. Notice the adjustment handle going through the fence to adjust the router height. This came with the router and works very well.

Looks great and will sure do the business. I sure wish I had that adjustment knob on top of mine. It would make life a lot easier.
