Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 79 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding Easy to assemble. Most time will be spent on leveling the table. Table is aluminum and should last way beyond the MDF style tops . As others have said, switch assembly is a little chintzy. No down grade for this since I have always used a foot switch when using a router table. Much safer. While access to the lower shaft nut can be made from the back, and the collet nut from the top, offset wrenches will ease the task. The Bosch wrenches are "pot-of-stock". Specialty woodcraft stores do sell these at $20 each. They're top-of-the-line quality and worth the price if you're a pro of heavy user. I'm waiting for the Bosch wrenches to come in.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OK for the price. I've had this router table for about a month now, and I would say that it is a decent general purpose router talbel that is adequate for non-critical woodworking. There are a couple of issues with this router table, however. The first is that some of the locking knobs don't tighten down very well, as on the fence and the feather boards. There were a couple of times when routing a board, the fence would move a little bit on me. The feather boards also need constant tightening when running boards through. The other issue I have with this table is that the cast aluminum table top is not perfectly flat. There is a "hump" in the exact middle of the table, which presents a problem in some critical work like cabinet door making. For most other general purpose woodworking, this router table is fine for the price I paid for it. Plus is is very portable. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Router table top I had a craftsmen router table I upgraded to a Bosch professional router table the table top is so solid and wide making it easy to run long trim through. The fence is easily adjustable and is easy to make perfectly straight since it's all one piece unlike some. Plus it comes with 2 feather boards with indentations on the fence and on the table so you can easily mount them without even using clamp. Plus it has a cubbie hole on the side making a nice place to keep wrenches bits, etc. February 10, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quality Product I just bought the table today and have a few comments. Commpared to the Ryobi Tables this one is far superior. The Feather boards are sterdy and strong. The plastic base looks cheap but is very stiff. My opinion having a large base to mount to a table beats the four point sheetmetal legs. Took me 1hr to assemble and I consider myself to be very mechanial, just a lot of hardware. Router plate is very strong and takes a few minutes to level up. The on off switch is small but in a beter location than the Ryobi. A very clever design. The Brush steel top is very corse and has alot of mass. The fense is made of an anodize extruded aluminum that is far superior to the Ryobi. It comes with a side comparment that stores all the extra hardware and most accesories. I would recommend this for the woodworker that wants something better than the a cheap "good value, good enough" version and the $900 Rockler "Superduper, do it all, digial, I want to be Norm Abram" version.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a very good buy The table was very eazy to install it works excellenty nothing bad to say at all A very good buy April 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good table the table is fine with most routers except I have a Porter Cable 7518 and trying to find a mounting plate is a killer. the mounting plate should have had this hole pattern considering the 7518 was one of the highest rated for a router table. Still trying to find a way to make it work. January 17, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by quality table The table took a couple of hours to put together but the instructions are clear. I installed the Bosch 1617 2.25a router in this table. I am new to routers, but this appears to be a good combination. As the instructions state, the table should be secured by the front legs to a workbench or something sturdy, as it will tend to tip over backwords when routing larger pieces (found out by experience).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A little getting used to but overall good product. I bought this after a week of reading different reviews. It's a good value for the cost. Not to tricky to put together. I bought this not realizing that Rigid routers were not listed as "compatible" with the Bosch plate. Turns out it is compatible (Rigid 2hp 1/2 inch). The plate did't take me that long to level. "You must do this to cut reliable results." Don't rely on measurement markings on table, they are only good for making sure the guard is true. Instead, I use a square for depth and a test piece for height. The only design flaw I have seen is in the right side of the plastic base. I had to notch out some of the base so the adjustable guide could be easily removed. June 20, 2011
