Welcome Cole

Budget and purpose should be your guides. As a machinst you have skill sets That I'm struggling to acquire and can make using a RT lots of fun. There are very costly precise store bought rigs or you can choose a pdestal style RT favored by many. Or you can design build your own. Reading http://www.routerforums.com/table-mo...ter-table.html is like a comprehesive review of all tables but a great starting point.

Feel free to post questions as you go

Learning is an exciting adventure

Make one, like my avatar.
You can find bath vanity bases at Habitat stores for cheap, or make your own base.
I used 2 pieces of 3/4" MDF for the top. Mounted the router with an insert plate, and good to go.

Here's the build thread.

Cole, if I was going to go out and buy a table it would be the Grizzly 10432. Nice work area, adjustable face fence, vacuum port, bit guard and a nice light weight steel stand. The mounting plate has removable centers for using larger bits, it accepts PC style guide bushings and includes a safety starting pin. This meets all of my requirements; the fact that it only costs $129 plus shipping is just icing on the cake.
