Welcome Walt, I would go for the center mount but that is just a personnel preference also I prefer aluminum insert ..... Good Luck

Walt, I use the Oak Park table which is 16" x 29.5" with the plate at one end. Unless you are going to be routing long/large pieces, I doubt it will make much difference.

Ask yourself the question, Do I need the Incra table or do I want the table. IF your projects call for the features of the table and you are a newbie then make your own with a drop-in aluminium plate, you will gain from the experience financially and as a woodworker.

Best wishes, whatever road you take

Walt,

I would look at the potential fences and other add ons you might want in the future. I am interested in the Incra LS Positioner along with the Super Fence. The table I bought previously is not deep enough to accomodate it. Good thought to think this through. I would buy an offset table if I had it to do over.

Walt, instead of using an incrementally adjusting fence I use an infinitely adjustable fence. Here is a photo of the fence and the fine adjusting tool.

I would go for the longer table and the one that has the most room in front of the bit. You can never have too much support for what ever you are working on. However as mentioned you might want to consider making your own table. An adjustable fence like the Incra has looks nice but in reality the precision will seldom be needed or used.
