Default Record RPMS-R roouter table

Hi there....I'm about to purchase a Record RPMS router table and was wondering if anyone has any experience with one of these? I'm a real novice as far a routing goes so any info would be useful

Hi Robin

The RPMS is almost identical to the table once sold by Ryobi as the RT6000 and which has also been retailed by others including Woodford in Stockport and the now defunct Woodcut firm of Bexhill. My experience with these leads me to say that at 250 to 300 they are potentially worthwhile purchases - at 500+ I'd say they aren't. The upsides are that they are large and stable and the sliding table can be a plus. The downsides are that they have a poor and sloppy fence design (which can flex), the sprung hold downs are inadequate and the clamping mechanism for the router is crude and sloppy (couldn't get a DW625 to fit very well - difficult to centre). The maximum table opening is also not that big . I also found it difficult to set the mitre fence absolutely square on mine, possibly because the fence plate flexed. I'd recommend taking your router along and trying it for fit before spending so much money

Regards

Phil

Many thanks Phil. Your experience of this table is consistent with many other reviews I've read. Although I could pick up this table at around 320, I think I'll bite the bullet and build my own. Thanks again
