Hello ladies and gentlemen, hope you are all doing well. Thought I’d ask if anyone in here owns the Rebel router table, and if so, what is your opinion on it’s performance and how does the fence stand up? Thanks for the help, have some fun and make some dust.

No experience with it but looks pretty solid for a benchtop model. I don’t like the independent fences though. Seems like a lot of trouble if you want them aligned.

Hello Ken, yep, that is one of the less attractive features for sure. Thinking you could make one solid fence with a little modification though.

Independent fences let you use the router table like an edge jointer. Easy to attach one solid piece of wood to the faces if you like a one-piece fence. I like the solid cast iron table. Haven’t had one of those, but did have the earlier iteration in cast aluminum, but I don’t like aluminum tables because AL can mark the wood.
