Default wolfcraft table

I've got a Wolfcraft "Master RT540" router table, not knowing that my Bosch POF1200AE router wouldn't fit.
I'm now looking at a Porter Cable 690 router instead. Any comments please?

I've had another look at the Porter-cable specs: 110v. Not much use here as our supply is 230v and I don't want to fork out for a transformer just for one machine!

Hi Jim - Welcome to the forum
I guess I have to ask, Why won't the Bosch work for you?

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Thanks John, I had another try today, removing the baseplate from the Bosch and locking the springs down. Now the bit is just high enough to use!

Great, making progress
I haven't got a Bosch but seems to me most recommend removing the springs completely. I looked at that table when I was shopping. Looked like a decent little table.

Removing the baseplate for depth is the norm, Jim..
