Default What router table?

My name is John. I have been an automotive instructor for the past 28 years and will be retiring in about a year and a half. I am getting ready to enjoy woodworking as I once did, and am in the process of accumulating tools.
I want to know what your opinions are on the best router table to purchase for under $500 including fence and plate.

Thanks

hi John, think seriously about building your own. there are lots of threads and posts here to show you how.

just my .02 cents.

light travels faster than sound, this is why some people seem bright til you hear them speak.

Please Please Please edit your profile with a name and location so we can better assist you and make for a friendlier forum
