Default Router table, slide, and fence?

Do any of you guys have this whole set up? http://www.rockler.com/findit.cfm?page=10935
If so, how do you like it? and pro's or con's to the setup? I'm just curious, I have a couple of projects that are more of a mass production type project and this setup looks to be what I am looking for without having to piece all of the parts together myself.

Wow.... That is about the nicest table I have seen yet. I just hate to think of investing that much in one though since table basics are so simple from a general standpoint.

Sure makes one drool though....

Rockler makes quality products. Are you planning on buying the $350 router that fits the masterlift? What about bits? You did notice that the stand is an additional $80?How much production are you going to run to cover the cost? If money isnt an issue you will be delighted with the performance. I look at the $930 before bits and taxes and shudder.

Right now I have a new 893 porter cable and they do have a reducer collar you can get so it will work with the table. I think I am going to go ahead and get the whole set up. I just wanted to know if anyone else had the table and how it preformed for them. I've got to say I am very excited to get this product. My wife will never see me again.

Thanks for your input guys.

Does anybody out there knowwhere the Router Workshop guys get those handy looking "C" clamps - the ones with the rounded knobs on them. Have some hands that don't work like they did when I was younger and they look like they would be easier to get a grip on to tighten down. I'm thinking that the knobs are something that they made themselves.

Bill: Those clamps that Bob And Dick use are from Oak-Park, who sponsers this web site. They are not very expensive and are certainly handy. I would also suggest the
brass set up bars for setting the bits and measuring distances.
