Default Intro and question

Hi,
My name is Jim, and I am a wood turner. Recently, I have come upon a need for turning different forms for the lathe using a router.

I have an older Craftsman router model number 315.275010. I would like to get a bench top router table for this router, as it runs very well. If anyone is familiar with this unit and can recommend a table/tbles tht are compatible with it, I would be obliged. I want to spend less than $400.
Thanks,
Jim

Hi Jim

You may want to upgrade your router 1st. the one you have will only take on 1/4" shanks bits and you should use one that can take on 1/2" bits as well in the router table setup..
