Unlike some of the budget router tables on my list, this one comes with a 1,500 Watt router already installed. Controlled by a safety switch and speed selector wheel on the front, there’s even a big stop button in case of emergency. The motor can spin bits up to an impressive 28,000 rpm. Although this router table takes a bit of DIY and ingenuity, remember it’s a sturdy table for 1/4 inch routers. It also has useful features, such as its wide enough working surface and the fence with three clamps for securing your work. You will also get Perspex guards to protect your face from any chips, plus a dust collection port. Another entry from the router experts at Trend is the bigger brother to the excellent CRT/MK3. The Trend WRT workshop router table is a big machine. It’s capable of working with the biggest bits of timber that you have, and it stands up on its own four feet as well. However, you may find that the insert plate for hanging your router may not fit perfectly so that you end up with an unleveled routed grove. Add some metal strips to solve this problem.

The best router table needs a solid and flat base to minimise vibrations and allow timber to pass smoothly and accurately along it. The accessory slot is what makes the Bosch RA1181 even more versatile because you can add all sorts of optional accessories. For instance, you can add a mitre gauge to keep your workpiece at an angle while you’re cutting. Router Tables Convert a hand held portable router into a workshop machine by inverting it, and mounting into one of our router tables. Universal mounting works with any brand of router. Choose from bench top or floor standing models.

A separate on/off switch connected to the body of the router table is a very important feature that you can activate with your knee in case of an emergency. If you’re not familiar with those large, usually yellow, plastic combs on the table and fence, they’re a handy and safe feature that helps to keep the workpiece tight to the fence without you having to push it too hard. The table size is generous enough for most jobs without taking up too much valuable bench space. At 850 x 335 mm, it’s fine for DIY stuff, but obviously not big enough to pass through sheet materials.

One of the best-known names in DIY around the UK, Silverline have an enormous product line with over 5,000 products spanning everything from concrete breakers to welders. Their 460793 router table is a good example of a low-cost option to upgrade your plunge router to a table router. It’s not built for heavy work, but it’s a great way to convert your trim router into a table one. Besides, remember you can only adjust the rear fence to approximately 80 mm, although a distance of 150 mm would have been better.The best table-mounted router needs a solid and flat base to allow timber to pass smoothly and accurately along it. My preferred material is cast metal like aluminium: it’s hard-wearing, not too heavy and reliably flat. Don’t discount laminated MDF though, it’s a reliable flat surface that might not be as hard-wearing as metal, but it’s a lot cheaper. On the Fence The fence arrangement is simple and effective. The three clamps supplied as standard will hold the work piece securely down against the table and up against the cutter leaving the operator to merely feed the timber through from right to left. A perspex guards protects the operator from flying chips and a dust chute is included for connecting to a vacuum or extractor. A sliding mitre fence, with a replaceable wooden face, completes the standard equipment. What makes this one of the best table routers in my eyes is the depth adjustment wheel– it’s accurate and easy to raise and lower the router bit – an operation that can be a pain with a regular router turned upside down on another router table.
