I am a beginning woodworker and I’m not sure what I should do. Eventually I will upgrade to a bigger shop but for now….
I have a small shop (12×16) and would like to mount my router to the table saw and use the aftermarket fence on my table saw for the router as well. I don’t think I will be using the router a ton but I know it can be an extremely helpful tool in the shop. I’m much more interested in using hand tools but I know I will use it.
Would I be better off in the long run to buy the table top system and mount it to its own stand in the long run? I’m very much of the mind to “buy my last tool first”. I simply don’t know enough about router table to know if the router table insert plate system can reasonably hold its own against a dedicated station.
