Cool Router Recommendation

Greetings.

I have recently taken delivery of a new router table and i find that my Ryobi plunge router will not fit. The plunge mechanism restricts the correct placement of the router bit.

The router table is a Hafco Woodmaster.

Does anyone have any experience with this table and do they have a router recommendation.

Thanks

Hi Destino and welcome. I'm not sure what you mean when you say the plunge restricts the bit. In what way?

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.

Not certain, but I think you have to remove the spring from the plunge base to use it in a table. Someone will know. Did you check our collection of instruction books on this site? I always find the most interesting information in the instruction books.

Oh yes, and welcome to the Forum. You didn't mention where you live (country) because there are huge differences between Euro, asian and America's models of what looks like the identical machine.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

That table is a generic sliding router table. I have one from MCLS branded. The router mounting is kind of funky and my Bosch 1617 didn't fit well. So I tried to drill holes through the table to mount the router, but that did not work well so I cut out the top and mounted a rockler lift with its own plate. Now very happy with the table. Also the fence was a piecs of junk so replaced it with a Eagle 100 fence from Eagle American. Below is the link:

Welcome to the forum.. If it is a Hafco Woodmaster, you must be in Australia?

I have a Hafco band saw, and just sold a Hafco table saw.
