Exclamation Kreg router table

CAN ANYONE HELP ME (I live in the UK)

I want to buy the KREG1040 router table, and need to fit a router to the table.

I do not want to buy a router lift system.

I have been looking at the BOSCH GMF1400ce COMBI router. My problem is, I want a router to rise above the table top so that I can undo the collet and change the bit.

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THIS ROUTER DOES THIS?

If it doesn't you could always resort to a collet extender

Regards

Can't speak to the router itself but offset collet wrenches are available if the collet does not fully rise above the plate.

Hi Frank.
I used to have a Triton 2-1/4 hp in one of my tables because it had above table adjustment. At the time the larger 3-1/4 hp didn't. Then when the new 3-1/4 hp came out with the above table adjustment I bought & installed the new router in the table. They both performed flawlessly. When making raised panels in hard wood the 2-1/4 hp did the job but the 3-1/4 hp did it with less effort. My preference would always be the more powerful router for a table. It's nice to have the extra torque that a more powerful router provides.

It really comes down to what type of projects you will use your table for as to what size router you could get away with. I know they label them differently in Europe so I say for a table mounted router go with the most powerful one you can fit in your budget. You never know what types of projects you will end up doing in the future.

Have a nice & safe day!
