Hi there

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

Thanks for your response. I'm not sure that I'm confident in such a renovation of the table at this time.

However in looking at the photos it is the same table as mine and I can fully understand why you have made such a change.

I concur with you that the router attachment mechanism could have been designed somewhat better. The ability to accurately and consistently position a router in/on a table I would have though was a basic entry level.
