My Router Table (RT) has taken a beating during my current project – a combination of large & heavy wood pieces, and near-continuous movement across the Formica table – routing tenons. I’m in the market for a new table, and want to consider a non-formica, non-phenolic solution. Everyone seems to selling the same table top.
I know of 3 metal tables tops – Sommerfeld’s, Festool’s CMS, and Bench Dog’s ProMaxRT. I assume there are others. My requirements are 1) above the table height adjustments; 2) above the table bit changes; 3) non-dedicated router manufacturer support (I happen to have a PC89x, but want to be free to change-out); virtually everything else is unimportant.
From what I can gather – Sommerfeld’s fails some of the requirements; Festool is typically self-referential (most probably are locked-in to the OF 1400/2200) and the table appears to be quite small (though, the slider is a hands-down godsend; and the ProMaxRT is new to me; though, looks promising.
I’d appreciate any insight from the Forum on this.
