3 Replies

I have a Porter Cable 690 and 890 series routers.  Is the Kreg table designed at all to be able to adjust the router bit height from ABOVE its router table (at least for the 890 series?) or do you…Continue

"GREAT Idea!!  Aren't the Rocklers a little narrower than the Kreg stock plastic versions and therefore with less 'bearing' surface? Did that seem to have any downsides? Thanks for sharing"

"Well, I bought one at Woodcraft in Cleveland this past weekend and although I don't have it completely together yet, I WILL say that the table is very very solid and strong in my opinion. Very well put together."

"It's back ordered at Woodcraft.  I have not been able to find many reviews on this either. I am wondering how sturdy the table is. I would like to use it lights for bench work as well."

Seems to be awfully quiet about Kreg's Adaptive Cutting System

The last posting here on the ACS was back on March 10th.  Has no one had the time to use it yet and give us your opinion? Would love the hear some feedback and if you know of any good online reviews (pro and con) please post them as I'm really interested in people's first hand knowledge of the thing.  There isn't much outside of Kreg's in-house videos on it so far (which are very good). Here's one I stumbled across today that seems well done. He uses the ACS to make a TV Stand.…See More

"Thanks Marshall. I would agree but my shop is too small to have room to store the table, cart etc even vertically. I was actually thinking of suspending the table surface from the ceiling when not in use, if it's not to heavy to move around on…"

"Question:  Is this something you could buy the surface, track and saw  and then just clamp it to you regular workbench when needed, rather than buying the whole rolling table structure as well?"

"You would have to drill a hole for that. The Kreg router plates don’t have any mounting holes in them. They do have a template that will help you center your router though. Then you mark the screw locations and the location for the height…"

KregCS replied to Deac Manross's discussion 'How easy is it to adjust router bit height adjustment with a Kreg Router Table? Can you do it ABOVE the table?'
"Deac,  As long as the router is installed properly onto the plate you should be able to raise the router high enough to use the wrenches to loosen your bit.  If you have any other questions please let us know.  "

I have a Porter Cable 690 and 890 series routers.  Is the Kreg table designed at all to be able to adjust the router bit height from ABOVE its router table (at least for the 890 series?) or do you have to do it all from down under?ThanksSee More
