Frank, consider building the economy table top shown in the sticky thread in this section. It is easy to cover Baltic birch plywood with Formica and then rout the mounting plate hole. This will give you the most options for a low cost. I think the Grizzly Presidents special router table is still on sale for $106 with a $10 over sized charge plus shipping. That gives you a nice table, mounting plate, fence, dust collection and steel stand.
