I am new to the forum and computer use. I am a retired dentist and have enjoyed woodworking for the last fifteen years. I have a new workshop and would like to purchase a router table. I have a portercable 75182 and it is very difficult to change bits. I am looking for a table and lift and want to spend my money wisely any suggestions?

Hello Claud! Glad to welcome you here. I would take a look at the Oak Park table. They are a very good table used by Router Workshop on PBS a few years ago. The system is not a table with all the bells and whistles, but i think you will find that it will do every bit as much as far as projects co. There are many good tables, but i like the system used buy Oak Park. I think that the cost is reasonable also. http://us.oak-park.com/catalogue.html?list=RT01- Take a look at the demonstrations for table, and accessories as well

Welcome aboard and I hope you check into wood carving. Your past experience would give you some leg up in that area of woodworking if the interest level is there.

Greetings Claud and welcome to the router forums. If you would be so inclined, building your own has great merit. There is great satisfaction in doing so plus if you need to change things down the line it would be less traumatic then cutting up one you paid 100.00+ $$$ for. It will give you some good experience in building things, not to mention you can get as much help as you want from the forum.

I have a very good memory, just short is all.
