Bench Dog 40-001, ProTop Contractor Benchtop Router Table
Bench Dog has won a number of awards with this hardwood plywood router table. The top is covered with plastic laminate, just like a kitchen countertop, to offer a flat and smooth surface with low friction. The router itself is supported by twin steel rails to ensure strength. Although small, this router table provides lots of capability with its 24-by-16 inch top. The router is mounted off-center, towards the front of the table. However, if you flip it around, the router is mounted to the back. Dual slots for the fence allow this switch to be made quickly and easily. The fence itself is machined aluminum, to ensure that the front and bottom faces are exactly perpendicular to each other. The front face is then covered with MDF for long life. A 2-1/2-inch dust collection port connects to most dust collection systems or shop vacs. Finally, there is an extruded aluminum T-slot miter rail mounted to the front of the table, rather than a simple slot cut into it.
