The Bench Dog 40-001 router table is a fantastic piece. It came with a few pieces of nice (baltic birch?) plywood, and about 50 million screws and bolts and other doodads. It was actually fun to set up, it was more like building a model than actual work.
I got Bosch 1617EVS as a dedicated router for this table. So far it seems great. Typical solid Bosch contruction. It’s actually not as loud as I expected it would be.
The router mounted to the table pretty painlessly, no drilling or anything required. I don’t think there is enough room to change the bit without taking the body out, but that is basically just just a clip and a twist. A second clip locks in the height.
I did some test runs with some rail and stile bits and a roundover, everything cut clean. The fence was a breeze to adjust properly and locks down tight with a half-turn.
Very happy with the whole set up.
Next up: Porter Cable dovetail jig, and finding a place for some of these things!
