Description

Unmatched Versatility, Incredible Adjustability
The new Kreg Precision Router Table System combines unmatched versatility with incredible adjustability and ease of setup to take your woodworking projects to the next level. This powerful system offers a large, durable table top, a one-of-a-kind T-square style fence, and a durable steel stand that work together to create a router table that meets all of your precision-routing needs. 

Multi-Purpose, Self-Squaring Router Table Fence System
At the heart of the system is the Kreg's Precision Router Table Fence. This innovative, anodized-aluminum fence features a table saw-style T-Square adjustment system that ensures the fence will always stay parallel to the miter-gauge slot.

The fence adjusts easily with just one hand and locks firmly in place with dual locks: a large paddle lock on the infeed end, and a quarter-turn lock on the outfeed end that prevents fence deflection. 

To ensure exact positioning, the fence features a measuring scale that allows you to position the fence and make adjustments based on the bit you are using. An included micro-adjust wheel makes setups simple to ensure precision. 

Built-In Dust Collection and Jointing Feature
Independent sliding fence faces can be positioned exactly where needed to provide workpiece support close to the bit and to maximize chip collection into the fence’s built-in dust port. Plus, two jointing rods are included. Just slide them into position behind the outfeed fence face, and the fence doubles as a jointer for putting perfect edges on boards. 

High-Performance Precision Router Table Top
The fence sits on Kreg’s large, durable Precision Router Table Top. This 24" x 32" (609mm x 813mm) table has a 1"-thick (25mm) MDF core that absorbs vibration and offers mass to help create a stable router table. A tough surface, made from high-pressure laminate, helps workpieces glide easily. Underneath, steel-reinforcing struts ensure that the table will stay flat to provide years of dependable service. 

A keyhole slot in the table accepts the quarter-turn fence lock and allows the fence to be removed easily for freehand routing operations. In addition, the table comes equipped with a combination miter-gauge/T-track to accept a miter gauge and other accessories. Four (4) included Precision Insert-Plate Levelers keep plate and table top surfaces perfectly flush. 

Heavy-Duty, Easily-Adjustable Steel Stand
To make routing even easier, the table and fence sit atop a heavy-duty stand. Made from heavy-gauge steel, the stand can be adjusted from 31" to 39" (78.7cm to 99.1cm) high, and has levelers to compensate for uneven floors. Plus, the stand has predrilled holes that make it easy to mount accessories and to customize the stand. 

Create a Custom Router Table System
Create a custom router table system to meet all of your routing needs with the Kreg Precision Router Table Top and Kreg Multi-Purpose Shop Stand. Or, create your own system with a shop-made table top and stand. 

Note: Router bit hole must be located 16" (406mm) from the right side of the table. Fits 1"-thick (25mm) tables without modification. Thinner or thicker tables may require modification.

big shout out to Kreg

My router table is almost 10 years old, used almost every day,and works like a champ, no problems at all. I use a Porter cable router in a JessEm lift, it is still as accurate and stable and flat as the day I bought it. Due to my ignorance I needed a part that was no longer available, but the guys at Kreg found one and shipped it to me within a couple of days...WAY TO GO KREG....my next router table will be a Kreg

Top of the line, but scrap the plate.

I made a project out of the installation. I tend to make 30 minute projects into three hours. Adding a LIFT to this assembly is really important, but not the KREG lift. I used the JessEm at a savings of $160! Mounted the table TOP into my 5 x 9 workbench and used the levelers that came with the table top to install the JessEm lift. Can't understand how I ever routed materials without this setup for the last 25 years. Controlling the router for micro adjustments from the top and getting exact measurements instantly is the cat's meow! Also covered my workbench with laminate flooring, the snap together kind, so table and both feed sides are slick like glass. 2 bad there are not 6 stars on the rating! BTW, the tech folks at KREG are as good as the dudes at Penn State, and together, they set the standard.

5 Starts and a few nit picking points

For what its worth to me a 5 star rating is justified- and here is the BUT- Being a retired manufacturing engineer after 30 years in aircraft and lasers- I am a novice woodworker at best so it will do wonders for me. While assembling I noticed a lot of little things that IMO- would add to longevity and customer satisfaction pertaining to a company going just a little further in several areas. Hardware retention to the table top, the leveling mechanism for the router mount- whether an adjustable as I purchased, or a stationary that comes with the kit; is I suppose good enough but the loctite was actually put on the wrong end of the allen screws as they barely get a thread or 2 into the plastic mount- with inserts etc.. The fence hex head screws seemed like an after thought- but they work the screws used for the miter track mount are the last type of screw I would ever expect to see from Kreg- these are horrible as they bubble the underside of the table- just as they are horrible on computer fan installation. The full size stand is a tank!! For the price I expect a little more attention to detail so with this kit and a lift, new router, bits, featherboards etc... darn near a 1000 bucks- this baby better last despite my nit picking- and yes everything was installed with hand tools..

Great System

I do not have this router table, however, I plan to purchase one in the near future. I have seen it use and I am very impressed with the features. I would like to address the previous reviewer's comments that a router should be included with the the table for the $500 asking price. That is just ridiculous. A quality router costs around $330. There is no way Kreg Tool can make a quality router table & sell it for $170. Let's face reality. I have several other Kreg tools, jigs, & a Kreg work bench. I am very satisfied. I would not hesitate to purchase another Kreg product.

Solid top and stand, but some things overlooked

Let me just preface everything by saying that once I got the table up and running, it worked great, and I was able to do things like feed through 10 foot lengths of 1x5 oak to custom mill my own crown moulding, without worrying about stability or performance. I like the fence system -- though be careful about the amount of pressure you place on the featherboards, as the fence can tip back ever so slightly out of 90 degrees if you make them too tight on the workpiece. But there are some weak links in the package that hopefully will be addressed in future upgrades: 1. The phenolic plate: they say it doesn't sag, but outfitted with my Triton 3.25 HP router, there was sagging on all four of the sides, causing the workpiece to catch. I was able to remedy this by fabricating additional plate levelers to place at the midway point between the corners. But maybe in the future Kreg can look into making an aluminum plate option? 2. OEM Insert plate levelers: while screwing in the plate to the levelers (very carefully, with a screwdriver), two of them had their brass screw casings literally pop out as I was tightening them. This was not a case of over-tightening, as I had been warned in advance to be careful during the attachment procedure. For $500, it seems like Kreg could spend a bit more on the hardware that ties the system together. A Router table is a piece of machinery that's only as good as its weakest link. 3. Reducing rings: a concave depression is created in the red reducing rings as you tighten them. This isn't a big deal if they are wide-mouthed, or if you're running a fairly long piece. But for the ones for small router bits, or if the workpiece itself is small, this depression can create some chatter in the cut. Again, this is a case where it seems like they took a shortcut on what should otherwise be a decent set-up. Let me say in closing that when I brought some of these issues to Kreg's attention, they were very responsive and apologetic, immediately replacing the insert plate levelers. They also sent a new insert plate, but I found that the same sagging occurred -- which, in any case, I rectified with the additional levelers.
