Default CMT Industrio Router Table System (orange cabinet)

I'm starting a new discussion thread on the CMT Industrio Router Table System (the one with the orange cabinet) so that most or all of the information members have about it can be compiled in one place for ease of access now and in the future.

Several forum members, myself included, just purchased this table/fence/cabinet package from Amazon in a close-out deal and the boxes of parts will be arriving any day now.

The Amazon page where this router table system can be found (as of this posting date) is:

CMT 999.500.02 Industrio Router Table System With Precision Fence, Phenolic Insert, Cabinet, Zero Clearance Inserts, Centering Tool & Insert Plate With 2 Aluminum Rings

$304.50 with free shipping AND if you purchase a qualifying power tool (as little as $15) you get the 20% "accessory" discount of $60.

I, for one, am looking forward to reading and posting member tips on putting the cabinet and fence together, installing a router, and an ongoing discussion of various highlights and lowlights of using the table and fence.

Ladd, I don't know if that qualifies for any of the money or not

I did get my table in today. The tracking info said 3 boxes were shipped. Didn't say anything about 3 "HEAVY" boxes. This table must be a hunk. Hadn't had time to open the boxes yet, but maybe tomorrow. Will keep you posted.

If I recall, the fence weighs about 24 pounds and I assume that the top weighs considerably more. The cabinet must really weigh a ton. Gotta love "free" shipping!

Mine is coming out of PA -- I live in MD so I'll I might get it as early as Monday if the UPS folks work over the weekend, which you would think if they don't always do it they certainly would this time of year.

Took mine out of the box today. Going to look over instructions before I get started putting it together. I thought I had ordered a router table, I think they shipped an army tank instead. This thing is built to last. Can't believe how much it weighs. Shipping would have been as much as the complete thing if we had to mail it. Also, there is a 3' yard stick in each picture, to let you guys know what to expect:

I added another picture of the front of the fence.

Thanks Bule Goose


Looks about the same , but I don't have the orange cabinet..YET..


Here's a small tip, get a tube of clear silicone and but a dot of it in all the set screw holes,,,screw the set screw down and set the plate and the ring true and flat,the silicone will let you adjust it up or down but will hold the set screw from backing out..don't use Loctie......(use a credit card to level and set true) I did replace the ones that came with the top with some that are called dog point,,,they are flat on the ends and will not dig in and just a bit longer, if I recall they are 1/2" long...for the big drop in plate...

Default Rockler Safety Power Tool Stop Switch on sale 1/3 off, free shipping

Not really the right place to post this I suppose, but in case any of the folks who just purchased new tables are interested, I just received an email from Rockler and, among other goodies, the Rockler Safety Power Tool Stop Switch is on sale for $20, down from $30. And with free shipping.

As a raw noobie, I know I'm way more attracted to buttons and flashing lights when it comes to tools and accessories than is needed, but being able to turn off the power by just bumping the switch with your knee, no hands required, seems like it could come in handy some day.

Geez! The one guy that reviewed it didn't think much of it.

"After 3 hours of assembling, which was a nightmare, the table was finally complete. There was an array of extra and missing parts. The fence took two people to move. The alignment of fence to router was juvenile. After being a master carpenter for 25 years, I would not recommend this table to anyone."

It'll be interesting to see what you guys think as it sure looks like a real nice setup.

It sounds like a ridiculously skewed review to me. Missing parts happen but no doubt that they will take care of that if that is the case. But I take this whole review with a grain of salt. The system is nearly identical to the bench dog set up. The fence is fairly stout but it's one of the best out there in my opinion. Blue Goose can give his impressions since he just unboxed his but I sure like what I see in his pics.

BJ, Thanks for the tip.

I got started on putting the table together tonight. Have about 1 hour and 45 minutes in router table so far. That was putting together, taking pictures, and working on a light that kept going out. I believe I could do it in 30-45 minutes if I had another to put together. Very simple if you read directions. There was a couple of places that the directions were not clear (might have been me) where I had to do a little figuring. Everything fit together perfect. Looking over the instructions, the hardest part is over. I am through with the cabinet and just like installing the top part. I would have gotten through tonight but my battery played out on my camera, so I thought that was a good place to stop.

A lot of these pictures will make more sense when you start assembling the table. Could not attach all the pictures so I will post another message.

Pictures are numbered.

Will keep you updated.
Doug
