Default Bosch 1171 Table

my bolts that hold the fence to the table, the bolts turn when tightening the knobs, due to the slots getting sloppy. Is there a fix for this, maybe someone else had this problem? Thanks

I'm not familiar with the table Bill but if they use t tracks then a t-bolt should work. The t stands for toilet bolt for holding toilets down to the drain flange meaning you can get them at hardware stores in the plumbing section.

The C clamps also work. That's all that the Rosendahl's ever used on their table in the PBS Router Workshop series. Their "fine adjustment" tool was a claw hammer.

the bolts are good, the mdf is crap. I like the clamps better now when using it. The bolts slide in a slot with a carriage bolt.

My last router table I installed t tracks onto and used those to clamp my fence. My newest table I've gone back to clamping down. I didn't dislike the t tracks but the clamps are simpler and I think they hold better. If I change my mind I can always add them later. There really isn't a right and wrong answer, it just comes down to preference.

I think you are talking about the two carriage bolts on each fence that hold and adjust each individual fence...?

If so, take the fences off...with a forstner bit (I think 1/2" but make sure), widen the hole by nibbling a little each side of center...then use toilet flange bolts in place of the carriage bolts... A drill press for the forstner will make you happy...

...works like a champ...

nick the bosch table has a one piece extruded aluminum fence with two carriage bolts thru keyhole slots in the table for securing the fence. When you go to adjust you constantly wiggle it to move it it does not slide well. The router workshop videos encouraged "C" clamps it didn't take me a minute to change.
