Thanks for your response. The issue with the plunge component is that given the thickness of the table with the router components attached the router bit cannot extend high enough above the table.
I'm very new to this world. I've been considering such a purchase for some time and on the recommendation of the local tool shop i purchased this table. However I don't think i asked the correct questions concerning a suitable router to fit to it. The glossy brochure says it fit almost any router and whilst this may be technically correct the attachment mechanism is i feel a bit of a dodgy design. especially if you want to quickly and easily maintain a constant location. I have a Ryobi plunge router and an AEG 1400 and I'm located in Southern Australia. Cheers and thanks
