Report Post Report This Post!

Hi all,
The company that made my Vertical/Horizontal "goto first" router table is back. (I have three other router tables (Rockler and MLCS) for other setups.)
Hawk went out of business in 2009, and was bought out by Hawk Woodworking Industries in Kansas and the latest version of the RS-29 is once again available.
RouterSHOP RS-29 is available for $800 plus s/h. A Caster set is available for $45.00
The RouterSHOP RS-29 comes complete with the sliding miter gauge, zero clearance inserts, feather boards, free hand guide pins, stop blocks, and step by step instructions.

The sliding miter gauge works as a built-in coping sled.
This all but eliminates the need to build jigs so that you can get on with your project.

You can see my "tricked out" RS-29 RouterShop on this forum by searching for:
"x-y-z router table" or "x-y router table"

I could surely buy a lot of tools for $800.00+, but not a router table.

Harrison,

I totally agree!

For me that's the price of admission for having a ton of fun in my shop.
I make everything from wood pens to standup desks to murphy beds using my RS-29 router table setup.

Thanks for looking.
Mark

IIRC, the router mounts on the fence part which tilts up, effectively going from a "standard" vertical table to a horizontal table.
