Default Freud Router For Table Use.

Greetings Y'All,

Does anybody have any experience with mounting and using a Freud FT1700VCEK 2.25 HP Fixed Base router in a table?

I have a chance to buy a factory boxed REFURB unit for less than $100.00 and want to make sure I won't be sorry later. I have 3 routers I can use as hand held work so I want the Freud as a dedicated table router only.

Any and all input is appreciated.

Ken B.

Hi Ken - Nice buy on that router. I've had one iin a small table for almost 2 years now. Been a real nice little table router. It's a little touchy getting it aligned so the above table access points aren't buried behind or under the fence. I installed it with the front of the router toward the back of the table. I also left the base plate and dust extractor on and that worked very well. Good luck

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