Default Help Buying Required (Aus supplier)

Looking to buy a router table and fence, Loke the options from Timbecon but have come across one from Carbitool for considerably less dollars. Does anyone have any experience with this table?

K118_MROUT1C-6 Think this is the model number, don't know how to put a link in.

I did a search at Timbrecon, but didn't find it.

Hi,yes, I have considered building and have done so in the past but the cost of plywood in Aus almost makes it cost prohibitive.

Go to a shop that makes countertops and ask them how much for a sink cutout or if they have one with flaws that can’t be sold. Sink cutouts make a nice table that’s large enough for small to medium jobs. If they have a flawed one you might get a piece for a large table.

I am not familiar with the Carbitool table, but always bear in mind you get what you pay for. You will get quality at Timbecon, and if you are in a club, usually you will get 10% discount.

Hi Jim,
That's the one that Carbitool are selling. I couldn't post a pic but that's the model number I quoted. What do you think to it?
