I was having trouble routing wide panels standing on edge on my router table. I made a jig to stand panels on edge for trimming solid edge moldings on plywood but was unhappy with the results. After reading reviews http://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shopsite_sc/store/html/smarthtml/pages/review1.htm#Horizonal_Tab_anchor and watching the short video http://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shopsite_sc/store/html/smarthtml/pages/horizontal_router_table.html I ordered the table and mounted a Craftsman Model 320.28190 12.5 Amp Variable speed 2-1/4 HP fixed base 1/2” router . I ordered the “special” that included 4 raised panel bits. Assembly was fairly straight forward with the exception of the raising block drilling template was under sized and caused the lift mechanism to bind significantly. I contacted MLCS and they said the template was off and promptly sent me a new block pre-drilled with the correct measurements. I had also messed up the router plate and MLCS tossed in a replacement for free even though the fault was mine. The table is an outstanding addition to my shop and the customer service folks @ MLCS are great! Using a flush trim bit makes lowering solid edge banding to the same level as plywood a piece of cake. I am looking forward to using the table to make raised panel doors in the future.
