jessem xl

I have a bosch table with a router raizer, and a 1 1/4 spindle shaper, both of which took too much time to used and set accurately. Doing many tasks frequently, and having little patients I highly praise things that speed common or repetitive tasks. So I opted for the Jessem XL table with built in lift. The lift is control by a handle on the side of the table, which means adjusts happen in a second, and bit changes are through the top with a couple of cranks. I love this tool!!!!. I debated on the fence for a while, each having its strong characteristic, and finally went with the incra LS system. While it is fast and accurate, it has so many options that some simple set ups become complex. And the dust collection is only OK. Incidently, Jessem is only a single screw lift, while woodpecker has a double, but the single has not shown any limitations yet.

I bought the red and black unit and went with the makita router. The smaller router does hamper the tables built-in dust collector. I bought the table from a guy "toolman" over the phone, and paid less than anyplace else. There is another place in Newyork that offered free freight, which seemed to be the second best price, but availability was also an issue. Sorry for not being more specific but its been 6months, if still intersted I can do some research. Bob
