Rated 3 out of 5Â by Chuck This product has great quality but is not as adaptable to other routers than Bosch.
The table itself it great, but I am disappointed with its ability to handle a different brand router. The locations for my router mounted it to left of center, making it difficult to use larger bits. I had to redrill the mounting plate to make it fit my machine, even though it was listed specifically by model number. I am disappointed. Once retro-fitted, it works great. Just like I thought, but a lot of re-engineering to get there.

I've got a Dewalt router, and it fit perfectly. Easy to assemble; great table for the money.

An excellent router table for the price point. I looked at all the major bench top router tables, Benchdog, Kreg, Bosch RA1181, before selecting this one, and I'm happy with my choice. It's built sturdy and is flat and square. I liked that this RT was a cabinet style with an external 2 plug on/off switch. The fence is surprisingly sturdy and straight. I was a little disappointed in the router plate, it's nice that it's Al, but it's cast Al, which makes it feel a little cheaper, but it's sturdy and can't complain for the price. If you have the time/money/space, I'd recommend getting a full size router table top and building a table under it, but this little table is perfect for my needs for now.

Overall this is a nice little router table for occasional use. There are two main drawbacks to the table though.
1) Accuracy of the router fence - the alignment marks are only good for a very course adjustment - to within a 1/16 or so. This is dependent on the positioning of the router mounting plate and the milled recessed area for the mounting plate on my table has a bit of play and is not square to the table.
2) Durability of the fence hold down - the fence is held in place by two square bolts in a slot cut into the table top. Because the surface is particle board, the slot to prevent the square bolts from rotating when tightening or untightening wears very quickly.
I ended up routing two slots for Rockler's T-Track and buying some T-Track knobs. The cost to do this far exceeds the difference between this Bosch table and the all-aluminum one (RA1181)

I was so easy on this tool because I knew it was made out of MDF. The slots in the table rounded out in the first month, I used it only a few times. Maybe a metal runner along the slots would solve the problem.
