Smile Enco 240-7162 cast iron table

Hi ,
Does anyone have any info on this table.It looks good but I have not seen any reviews on it.I have a Freud 3 1/4 hp Ft3000vce that sounds right for this table.
The table looks like the Mlcs aluminum table or the grizzlyGo528.
Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks Rich

Rich, the only reason to have a iron table is for an industrial operation. Since most members are asking for home use I would say it is a terrible waste of money. Buy or build a decent table and use all the extra cash you save for bits.

Handy for magnetic attachments, e.g. Magswitch.Magswitch

I don't need the mag switch. Add a clamp and a feather board, or any thing you need. Also a lot lighter.

Saw table, band saw table are both cast iron as are their basic fences. A sheet of tinplate or steel fastened to a wooden table, can use the magswitch featherboards if you share them on other equipment. Buy one and become flexible.

I like that! It would work with the Triton Table. I looked on Axminster and thought the Pro Featherboard was dear at UKP36, then checked J&L who expected would be cheaper, but who wanted a whopping UKP47 for the same thing!
Rockler want 59 bucks, EagleAmerica about the same, with Lea Valley at USD51. Hey, Axminster are looking reasonable !! That makes a change on a regularly priced item. UK prices are usually the same digits in Pounds that US ones are in Dollars.
