Default Obvious (Unanswerable) Question

Howdy. I have the one question that doesn't have one answer. Still, which router table is the best to purchase? I really don't want to build my own table and I do like the idea of having a pre-manufactured table and maybe some jigs, too. Also, what's the best router that will fit the best router table? I know these are big questions with mulitple answers, but any advice offered will be much appreciated since it will give me something to think about and to use while I consider my purchase(s). Thanks.

John, as you no doubt expected, there is no single answer to those questions. Try this forum link, you may find a suitable answer.

Hi John - Welcome to the forum
hehehehe, some question, which is better, a red ford or a blue chevrolet.
Since your primary query was things to consider in looking for a table, I think Harry probably gave you the most constructive advice.
The real value here, as you peruse the various configurations, is that you can contact the owner/creator of the table as to why they incorporated this or that feature or what they would do differently. Most, if not all who have contributed are proud of their possesion/creation and are more than willing to share their experiences, reasoning and successes with anyone who asks.
Hope you enjoy your stay with us.

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

The Ford, of course.

Cool Red ford!!!!!!!!

Right on Mike. Especially if it is a 1964 Galaxie 500XL, with a 427 CID and 4 speed.
