    Craigs List find

    This Rockler router table is the older version but was never used. I had to add a switch from my old PC bench top table but will replace it with a nice paddle switch soon. I ordered the Rockler lift that was on sale and it should be here this week. The new lift has a slightly larger plate so I'll have to route out the opening a bit.

    Not the top of the line but for $100 it seemed like a pretty good deal. I had planned to make Norm's table but time and the cost of his table was too much.

    I can't beat that but here is a pic of the top I got for free & the Hitachi 2.25 hp router I got later as a free promo that I put under it.

    I have the same table with the Rockler lift. I enlarged the opening for the lift. It works good for me.

    Congrats Bob. If this is your first table, get ready for a great new way to approach some of your woodworking tasks.
