This is the best value piece of woodworking kit I've come across. The frame is very solid and well up to the job. The top is rigid and accurately machined...the fence moves easily etc. The insert also is very rigid and easily removable. Great product...really impressed.

Excellent product. At first, I was considering sending this back when I unpacked it. I wasn't sure about the quality of the table. I starting assembling it, and once finished, was really impressed with it. I just had to remove the base plate from my router, use it as a template to drill and countersink 5 holes. I had some longer screws , so I could easily fit the router under the table. The insert plate does have a slight hump in the centre, but it is designed this way so the weight of the router pulls it flat. The fence needed some very slight adjustment, and I must say I am delighted with this table. To be honest I'll probably leave my router permanently attached to it. Already had great fun making jigs for box joints and dovetail joints. Superb product and price.

The router table itself is a superb piece of equipment and extremely good value for money. Solid and accurate table, fence and other bits. Delivery was amazingly cheap and next day. Highly recommended. If I have a criticism it is of the metal legs. There are difficult to assemble and once on you wouldn't want to take them off again. This limits the portability of the table. However, if it's a fixture in your workshop then the legs are fine.

Absolutely great piece of kit for the money, no problems drilling the plate for the router, I can't comment on the stand as mine was fitted to my router cabinet.
For the money, a cracking bit of kit.

This is just great quality for the cost ! Its solid, nicely finished, and comes as a nice complete package. I didnt use the supplied legs but instead mounted mine to a kitchen cabinet carcass for a boxed in solution to dust control. Couldnt be happier, and you will be too if you choose to buy one.

Very pleased with this table, the new splayed legs make it very sturdy and the top is solid and flat. The original insert plate wasn't quite flush, contacted customer services who replaced it without a quibble and it easily takes the weight of my Trend T11. Well done for your excellent response. Will definitely order from Rutlands again.
Very pleased with the table, Excellent value for money and well made. The base is very stable and the fence true, and all very easy to assemble. All I need now is a router! Delivery also excellent - about 24hrs.
Ordered the table on Sunday it arrived on Tuesday with no hitch. For the price it is very well made simple to install and excellent value for money.

A solid and very well built table, not the usually shoddy asian workmanship we normally get. Every part of the table has that high quality feel about it. Top marks to Rutlands, I ordered it on Tuesday lunch and it was in my workshop 19 hours later, ready for my wife to assemble :). A 5 star service.

At this price very good value for money. Compelling rigidity, particularly the fence which is a massive chunk of duralumin angle supporting the laminated MDF fences. As others say it is easy to change cutters by simply lifting the insert and attached router out of the table. I have just made two 6' wide pilasters, each with five stopped flutes and, because of their overall length, each had to be made of two pieces; such is the stability of the table and accuracy of the fence that the flutes of one piece aligned perfectly with those of the other. My only criticism - and it is minor - is that the thickness of the applied yellow measures can hinder the movement of the timber past the cutter head. I plan to replace them with recessed metal measures in due course. First rate bit of kit.
I bought this router table to use with large raised panel cutters for making new door fronts for our kitchen. My old Trend table was too small and did not have the stability to work with large cutters. This table is excellent as the top is large enough to support the doors without me supporting them. Changing cutter height is easy as you simply lift the plate and router out in one go and you have immediate access to the collet. I have added a shelf to the stand and boxed it in on three sides and added two doors to the front. Looks the dogs b****cks.
I am impressed with the table. It was very well packaged, easy to assemble, and there were no missing parts. I really like the fact that to change cutters all you do is lift the plate and router out of the table. So much quicker than my old table where I had to crawl on my hands and knees. The table is a really good size and the steel fence does not creep under heavy pressure.
