I am in the market for a router table and looking for advice. I was leaning toward the Kreg Table top for both cost and space savings. On amazon it has had some poor ratings, the full size Kreg has very good ratings. Is it worth twice the money?
I have the PRS 1020 table top with the Prs1010 Prescion fence and I added a KMS7215 Micro adjuster to it, and believe me, it makes one fine table router. I purchased a JessEm table top and fence at the Calgary trade show. after I bought it I went back and played around with it and the Kreg. Come Monday morning, I canceled the JessEm and bought the Kreg, and I have NO regrets. I made my own roll around base to sit it on. The Kreg fence allows you to do jointing as well by putting inserts behind the fence face.

Mark. Is the 1040 worth the extra cost? It depends on your shop size, depth of your pockets, and frequency of use.
I built an adjustable table so that I would have an outfeed platform for my table saw, jointer, plane and now my router table, the stands are all on locking castors so I can minimize floor space used.
I purchased the 1040 and put it on casters, so I could roll it over to my adjustable outfeed table to facilitate shaping 20 ft. hand rails for my stairs. I use it often enough that I purchased a new router so that I wouldn't have to waste time installing the router every time I need to use it. I am in my shop working on a project at least 20 hours a week
