Has anyone purchased a the large Router Table from the Router Table Depot? It appears to be similar to the T10432 table from Grizzly. The RTD table is available with an aluminum insert. I know many say to build one but I want to start off with a purchased one and build later. I have also thought the Kreg Portable which is attractive to me due to my limited space. I appreciate any thought on this.

I absolutely love my veritas steel router table and would buy it again in a heartbeat.

to start with a purchased one … build one later … kreg portable one … attractive due to my limited space …. Some incongruence here. You will end up with 2 router tables … more limited space.

I have the Griz table. It’s pretty nice, and the price is right. Easy assembly, nice to have the shelf support.

The plastic plate is not great, but it works fine. Everyone knows Griz is easy to deal with, so keep that in mind when you make your decision.

Note that you can also think about using the Griz top with your own base, which makes the purchase less throw away. The opening in the top is standard size, so upgrading the plate is easy. Even with an aluminum plate, unless you have Triton or Milwaukee router where you can raise/lower/change bits without a lift, you will want to replace whatever plate you have with a lift at some point. I would get the Griz, then plan to upgrade to a lift, then replace the base with a shop made one if you decided to do that.

for what its worth if you get the veritas steel one, you could use it AS the insert for a larger table
