Default Router table suggestions

I have searched the forums and have found some god information. I made a mobile workbench and was going to drop a router plate and router into into it but have decided on a stand alone unit. My remodeling/woodworking business is getting to busy for me to take to make a table so I started to look at the options out there. I stumbled across the sommerfeld table and fence and it looks pretty nice. Does anyone have this set up with the triton router? Any other suggestions for a router table and fence. Thanks

Default Router table suggestion

So I have made a decision to buy a router table and fence. I stumbled across the sommerfeld table and fence and it seems pretty nice. I have also seen posts thaT people like the Indra #3combo. Does any one have any experience with these tables or any suggestions for another brand? Thanks

Looking at Jessem, they do look nice. Price of the top and fence is a little more. They do have a fence that I can us to do jointing which is something I have looked at doing for a while. I don’t use my wood shop and have been doing everything mobile out of my 21ft trailr. I haven’t tried to use my festool track saw to edge joint, I imagine it would work.

Jessem looks nice. I have considered an adjustable fence for a while to do edge jointing on a router. I could probably do it on my festool track saw but haven’t tried. Being mobile I have to leave the jointer at home and don’t have the room for it at the moment, and it’s too heavy to drag into my 21ft mobile workshop. Do you have any experience with there router fences?

Welcome Eric. Triton has an excellent reputation as a table router. I'm not familiar with Marc's table though. Some guys who need one at work have built tables that are just a top and clamp to a pair of sawhorses. One or two others have made a top that clamps in a Workmate with strips around the edges that spreading the Workmate into holds it from sloding and the router sits in the opening. Those are easy to make, take, and store. Then you just need a fence. I can make a 1st class fence in 2-4 hours (never timed it, made 3 of them so far like my current one).

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Edge jointing on a table can be done with a split fence but getting the offset relative to bit exposure can take time. Faster is to use a straight edge and run the router down it.

I have a Woodpecker table and like it very much. I also think I would like the Jessem, and Incra tables. I really don't think you can go wrong with any of them.
