    Changed My Mind About Building A Router Table

    Ran across this same identical Bosch table on CL (CL Listing deleted, so can't show the actual listing). The CL listing was for $120, but the seller accepted a counter-offer of $100. Looks totally like new & includes all the accessories as noted in the L's description.

    Had fully intended to build my own router table, but when I ran across this, I realized it would do everything I want to do, plus it would cost less that the materials & time I would have to expend if I did it myself. Probably built better than I could do.

    Tomorrow, I plan on installing Glen Bradley's old Craftsman router on this table. He graciously gave me his old router for just the price of shipping. This should be a good combo. Thanks again Glen!

    Removed comment about insert levelling screws. They were already there & I hadn't noticed them.

    Sounds like a good call. Why re-invent the wheel if you don't need to?

    That was my first table. Matter of fact I still have it and use it every now and then. Great little table. Congrats on the score
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
