Default Rockler router table question

Found a router table on craigslist. It comes with a cabinet below but I just want the top. Seems like it has a plate installed and maybe a few inserts. I haven't gotten a response yet on whether it has a fence. They're asking $50 for the top...is it worth the money?

Looks like a great deal to me from here. $50.00 is nothing in tools these days. Go for it! You can research routers for the table once you decide your main purpose of use.

HI Dask

That's not to bad why not get the bottom cabinet too.

I say go for it .. $50.00 is worth the top if nothing else save and build a new table at a later date.....

Hope you will let us know how the deal turned out for you. Looks like a great table. Never enough storage in any shop!

I bought their rolling table kit that did not have a cabinet and built one. It's a good place to store all your router related items and keep the dust out of them while keeping everything right there.

Oh and i'm sure I paid more for the table kit than $50.00 so I'd say it's a good deal. If there's no fence you can either buy one from Rockler or make your own.
