Default Router Table 171-254841

Looking for a good Craftsman router to fit this table, need both ability to load both 1/4" and 1/2" bits.

Welcome Hammertime. I found the manual for that table but I didn't see in which router models were meant to fit it and they were built for using Sears routers. 17125481 CRAFTSMAN ROUTER TABLE Manual | Sears PartsDirect

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

The manual posted by Cherryville Chuck is dated 1996.

Might be worthwhile to bring the table top to a local Sears store to determine which -- if any -- of the current Sears routers fit.

As an aside, that router table reminds me of a one sold by Porter-Cable in the early 1990's .Had one and found it to be very light. I tightened the router mounting screws before turning on as it vibrated a great deal. Also mounted it to a piece of 3/4" plyw'd. for ease in clamping it to the bench/work table.

Hi Hammertime. Welcome to our little corner of the 'net


Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.
