no previous part Part 1 of What is your fav Router Table ? series no next part

I want to get a router table and there are so many …...I would love all yer ideas as to what is working for you …My Bro in law has a JessEm with ALL the bells and whistles and i got to use it a few weeks ago …It even has a Red and Gold crank handle that cranks from the right side under the table.. that of course was not the selling point ..but the JessEm is quite a jewel …..I think the BenchDog looks like a good one also …I was just perusing the MLCS HORIZONTAL and it looks nice but limited ….but the price is good …
So who else uses what and what works for all the LJ sawyers …..
thanks …I will take your answers off the air …

An Incra fence is about the best you can get. I think they also sell tables. The woodpecker
is a great router lift.

I made my own table with an incra fence and the woodpecker lift.

I have the Jessum – but without all the bells and whistles. The lift can give minute changes to tweek a cut. The only thing I don’t like about my table is the lift handle is right where most people would stand and it’s easy to bump.

I used it on my Bro in laws and of course i only used it for a bit and i did not have a prob with it .tho i have not used it for an extended time …...but I liked the handle crank so much i called the JessEm folks and ordered one of the Cranks for my Radial Arm Saw …I figd it would cost an arm and a leg ..but she said …19.95 and would you like it in Red or Blue ….
I got Red …

Make your own. It will be custom built to whatever specks you want and cut a lot of cost.
I also recommend the Incra system.
