Default Recommendation on router table

I'm considering buying a router table. Appears that Kreg may have what I want and wonder if any of you have any suggestions as to what may be better to consider?

Welcome to the router forum community. The Kreg is a nice router table before you make your final decision take a look at the RT1000XL on sale at Best router table

BA, there are many decent tables available depending on which methods you are most comfortable with. Bob and Rick Rosendahl of the Router Workshop (One of the sponsors of this site) teach that you should "Keep it simple." When I joined this site I had just finished building an excellent table from the plans in ShopNotes #1. Rick convinced me to try a Router Workshop table and I will never switch back. I find that jobs are easier using their methods. If you want a furniture style table the RT1000 that Joe sells is an excellent way to go. My second choice for a table would be one of the Kreg's which are better quality than many available. Decide on which features are important to you and how you plan on using the table. Any of these will make you happy.

Hi BA - Welcome to the forum

Kreg seems to have a decent table. I'm not to thrilled about the fence. It wants to clamp itself straight across the table and there are often times I just want to move one end of the fence or the other. In some ways it's a good thing as it is usually parallel with the miter slot but there are a lot of times I don't want nor need that. JMHO

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