      A:  Hi! We have not tested the RA1181 router table with the Ridgid models; however, the mounting plate will work with several manufacturers models. If your router does not match up with the pre-drilled holes, you can mark them off and drill the holes needed to mount it.

          Not quite what I expected, but passable.
          I was expecting an all metal router table, the legs on this are plastic. When I opened the box it was taped not glue sealed and there was damage to the box. When I open it up and get all the parts out I carefully examined all of them and found some damage to the fence. I had to wait till Monday to call Bosch Customer Service. After an hour on the phone they said they are sending a new fence.

            I ordered this a few months back and just set it up this week. The package it was shipped in it was a mess and one of the legs was broken. There was no padding other than some bulled up packing paper. I pieced it together, but there were random pain splotches all over everything. Once the table was together is seemed to "work", but my router table combination was extremely loud and the table was only slightly more stable than the routing table I replaced. It is a little concerning that it doesn't seem like this went through any quality control process.

              You get what you pay for - barely good enough precision
              This is the second table I've got because the first one was not even close to being anywhere near flat. The insert plate is cheap and they seem to have a natural bow to them. You can eliminate most of this if you win the machinery lottery and by adjusting the leveling screws to flatten it out. The miter slot isn't even close to usable with my Incra miter. The slot is oversized and there's a ton of play. The table near the miter slot has a noticeable dip in it as seen in pictures. You get what you pay for and maybe this is good enough for someone just starting out and wants to get better and inevitably upgrade. Otherwise don't waste your time and save up for something better in a different league.

              Hi! Home Depot is focused on ensuring complete customer satisfaction. As the manufacturer, we are very interested in supplying consumers with a quality product that delivers the expected performance.Our RA1181 has an acceptable flatness of.020 across the table top. Even if not perfectly flat as long as it is within tolerance the table will perform. As for the miter slot, it is designed to be slightly loose, which is a safety requirement.

                I have had mine for several years. I have had several brands and models, this is by far the best.

                  Router great but problem with table assembly
                  Bought the bundle and am well pleased with the router. Didn’t assemble the table until a couple of weeks after the purchased. I checked the parts list in the instructions and all present and accounted for. However, upon assembly, I found the the “Front Fascia Plate” was too small (see photo). I could probably return everything to Home Depot but don’t want to, so called Bosch & they are sending the right part N/C. Will probably fab a new fascia whilst waiting.

                    This router gives the table saw a run for its money being the most versatile tool out there.

                      I like the steel deck, but the fence is really difficult to get squared and lined up with the bit perfectly. Also, the channel for mitre dealie is too wide. I did some beautiful cabinet doors with it, but that fence was a pain.

                      This is a fantastic and very versatile router with plunge base. The design seems to have focused on making every little aspect of either the router, the fixed or the plunge base very controlled and precise. The handles are wide and comfortable for prolonged work, and variable speed is has enough spread between 8-25k rpm to work with range of wood from soft to hard woods. I needed the router type that can work with both 1/4 and 1/2 collet without having to buy an adapter. At 14 amp (1700 Watts) motor and top RPMs it leaves nice, clean, razor-sharp edges and cuts even on the hardest types of wood. It is definitely worth buying a router table with it, as it expands the functionality of the tool tremendously. I loved every aspect of the tool, the built quality is superb, with high level of precision and materials used. https://youtu.be/WQbvR5Ztr44
