Default Ryobi Tabe Router featherbard

Hello,
I received the Ryobi Router table with the 1.5 HP router for Christmas. I am new to routing tables and thought this would be a good starter package.
I cannot find a suitable featherboard for this router. I checked with Rockler and theirs fits the Rockler table and theBench Dog brands.

Any suppliers make one that fits this router table? i checked Ryobi as wel and they do not offer that accessory,
Thanks

Hi Sam, yeah, I looked at that table before I bought a different one. Miter slot is narrow and shallow. You may end up having to clamp featherboards onto it somehow. I don't think the top is thick enough to cut a dado for a t-track even. I don't remember for sure whether it is an aluminum or plastic top. Maybe a magswitch with a piece of flatiron under the table???

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Default Ryobi table too small for me

Your right, this is a lightweight table. it was a gift, and an opportunity to see what routing was all about. The aluminum machined top is nice, but the track is not wide or deep enough for featherboards from Rockler or anyone else. This and some of the adjustable plastic fences makes it hard to do larger serious work. This small table is perfect for the hobbyiest cutting small frames or panels.

I will of course be looking for a larger table soon. Now how to move up to a larger router without offending my mother in law. LOL

You'll have to keep it, of course. Put it at the end of the bench with a small light over it, so it's always in the spotlight, so to speak.
