Topic tags/keywords: question

So I built this router table when I had my previous table saw. Well after I sold it I decided I would put the router table base on Craigslist to see if anybody wanted it.

It would include the kreg insert plate, kreg levelers, but not the actual router table. When I sold the table saw the router table went with it without the plate and fence. The base was never actually attached to the table, just sat below on levellers to bring as close to the router table as possible.

So they would have to build a table or I put in ad I can make one if they didn’t no how.

I don’t want to sell it to make a profit, but can’t figure out a good $ for both parties.

Any ideas

-- Thank You Trevor OBrion

I try to shoot for around material costs. Obviously, the labor that went into yours exceeds materials.

What’s the very least that you’d take for it? Add maybe $50-$75 to that to start your haggling from.

You’ll prolly have better luck selling if you
make a top for it. Nothing special but I’d
think you’ll get more interest.

Yeah, I agree. Make a MDF with plastic laminate top.
