I actually built my own table on top of a set of Crafsman Radial Arm Saw Legs. I built a box to help contain the sawdust. A side access door to vac out the sawdust and a hinged top for easy access to the Router.

Greetings,
My name is Tom, also known as HD116 both here and at Home Depot's How to Community. I am assisting with some product questions today and saw yours had gone unanswered for a few days.
While as it comes from the factory, it is not suitable for a table mount, (it is a plunge router) in doing some research I found the following excerpt from a post on a review that I thought you would find useful.
Here is the excerpt - "I noted one reviewer who lamented about no router tables being made that will work with this router. I believe just about any major manufacturer of router tables has one that will work. Woodpeckers router plate, for example, (which fits their router table, of course) can be had with a hole configuration that fits the Milwaukee 5619 router. But, since the 5619 and the 5616 use the same sub-bases and hence have the same sub-base hole pattern, you're golden! Basically, you may have to cross-reference and double check a few things, but finding a commercially made table set-up poses no problem. Additionally, many of us have built our own router tables and made our own plates. So go ahead and get yourself a table to fit this router (if that's what you want to do with it) and have fun!"
Hope that helps and thank you for your question. Read Less

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great table router! This is a great choice for a home router table. 13 amps powers through hardwoods with ease. The above table adjustment is very handy. I would highly recommend this router. September 27, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by First online purchase with HD Bought for use in a router table I am building. Price was good through HD. October 4, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Died after 6 months A good performing router whilst it worked. Received minimal use over 6 months, routing some architrave door moldings, then after 6 months started sparking and smoking and died so now have to deal with getting it repaired under the warranty. I expected a product of this caliber from Milwaukee to last a lot longer especially since it really hasn't seen a whole lot of use. March 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth the wait I ordered this router on line because my local Home Depot does not carry it. I received it in less time then I thought and it was well worth the wait. I use it mostly in my router table and it is very easy to make adjustments with it. It is powerful whether you are a DIY or a Pro. I highly recommend it! October 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Router Hooked it to a router table. No need for a router lift as this unit comes with a T-handle that allows you to adjust through the table top itself without having to use the adjustment dial on the piece itself. Runs strong and has a smooth start that graduates to top speed in just a few seconds. Nice feature. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well built for a serious first time user Position and feel of handles and location of start button are ergonomic. I really like the variable speed power. Simple to adjust height / depth controls. I bought the exact bits I needed, and spent about $20 on each for good ones. Overall my project was a success because of the tool, and Milwaukee came highly recommended. January 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I expected I've already used it for making rail and stiles attached to a router table. The only negative is, the wrench supplied would not fit into the hole of the table to raise or lower the router. But it's just as easy to use the control under the table. February 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Product is very good quality works better than any router I've owned would highly recommend this to anyone January 28, 2014
