I think what I'll have next weekend is the aluminum table, not the MDF.
Doesn't mean it'll be any better, but like I said I'll let yall know.
As far as cheap tables go I like the Ryobi intermediate table.
If you go with a Rockler plate, and change the miter track to an aluminum track you have a decent table.
For around $176 after the upgrading you get a split fence, bit guard, vacuum port, power center with two outlets, laminated top, feather board, starting pin, and one insert. Just add your own router.
