KREG BENCHTOP ROUTER TABLE REVIEW UPDATE.

Well had the benchtop router table a fair while now .Overall pretty pleased with it ,however another small problem i have discovered is concerning the table overhang.Its really non existent, so it does not lend itself well too clamping any auxcillary fences too the edge of the table .Which i have needed to do at times, you can clamp too the edge but you need a spacer block between the metal frame of the table and your clamp so it sits flat very fiddly.So just a suggestion to kreg would it be…

Triton trb001router

Hi this is a review of the triton 2000watt router.I think its the most innovative router i have come across.The triton has 3 modes of depth setting,including a winder handle facility for table mounting.It is variable speed and loses no momentum under load.A big bonus for me its very quiet in use .Overall i give it 9 out of 10.

kreg benchtop router table

Hi all just road tested my kreg router table , i give it 8out of 10.

                                  PRO/s

Its well made with a nice flat table.

The insert plate top notch quality.

The plate levellers are a great idea.

Dust extraction via the fence seems to work well.

Assembly fairly simple good instructions.

                                 CON/s

Table should come with hold down brackets.

No nvr switch had too take off my old…

Hey, Mick.

 Your shop's cyclone cart looks great. I am looking forward to making one myself someday. My shed/shop is coming along nicely. I finally got all but a 3 3/4 ft x 24 ft section left and it will be done. I can't wait to finally showoff the place when it is finally finished to you guys here on the site. Thanks for sharing your cool cyclone shop cart.

Thanks for the compliment Michael - the finish is a sprayed clear satin reaction lacquer - 3 coats.

Hey Mick, great to always hear from you! Sorry that it took me soo long to get back to you. This project led me into skills that I had never attempted before. The internet and woodworking magazines really help with technique. It took me a few months from start to finish on this one (I think LIFE got in the way!).

It's been a while since I've logged-in! I'll have to catch up and see what YOU'VE been putting together since we've talked. I know that you are never idle!

Stay Cool!

Hi Mike:

Just ordered my Festool MFT top for my Kreg Universal Workbench.  Think I'm gonna try making some miter saw wings for my Kapex that will attach to the Crown Stop Extensions I also ordered.  Similar to what Dave Reinhold did if you've seen his video/pics of that project.  Will post a pic when finished!

  Hi, Mick.

 Thank you for the comment on my Shed/Shop. I recycled most of my wood from my old 10x12 shed in this bigger one. Most of the walls were built with the recycle 2x4s from the old shed. The only thing that has new materials is the roof and the clearstory window wall and the 11 foot long part of the south wall. That part is pictured in the 8x8 beam picture of the straight wall on the backside of 24 foot long south wall. I will probably do a tour by side show when I finish the Shed/Shop hopefully this coming summer.
