Product Details

A motorised router table has one distinct advantage over standard router tables; it comes with its own motor meaning you don't have to tie up your hand held router in your table. This router table is perfectly sized for any workshop and can be bench mounted or floor standing when mounted on the optional stand.

The 1500W motor is electronically controlled and gives a speed range from 8,000 - 27,000rpm; perfect for all diameters of router cutter. For added versatility, this table is supplied with both 1/4" and 1/2" collets giving you the freedom to carry out most routing projects. Cutter height is controlled using the hand wheel at the front of the table. This gives a seamless rise and fall along the full 40mm of travel and the cutter height can be set and locked off anywhere along this. Also at the front, the power switch is easy to access should you need to switch the machine off in a hurry.

Made from steel pressings, the 600mm wide by 460mm deep table top features a full length accessory slot allowing it to accept the supplied mitre fence or featherboard. The adjustable fence also features accessory tracks allowing it to accept the included featherboards. A 70mm dust port to the rear of the fence gives you dust extraction at source for cleaner working. Supplied with 1/2" and 1/4" collets, fence, 3 featherboards and a mitre gauge, this router table is excellent value for money. 230V.

Specifically designed for the DK2080 Motorised Router Table, the optional DK2081 workstand turns the router table from a bench mounted machine to a floor standing one allowing you to keep your work bench free for other jobs. Supplied flat for ease of delivery, this stand requires assembly by the user and should take around 30 minutes to assemble. The design and shape of the stand means it is strong without being too heavy and fits the motorised router table perfectly.

Drew

I picked this up at sale price really to explore how much use I would give a table router Vs using my plunge router & jigs..... The answer is "a lot".

The not so good.
The bed is not flat, the plastic inserts round the cutter can deform under load, the fence is poorly made to a poor design and the mitre track / gauge is most suited for decoration.

The Good.
The fence design makes it very easy to replace with a design of your own. 5 bits of conti board latter and I have independant movement of in / out feed featherboards and fences, all of which are flat and square. Fence design was one apect of using a table router I really wanted to explore and it was great to be able to modify the tool as I needed.
The Mitre gauge I replaced with a shop made coping sled which, lets face it, on a circular tool just makes way more sense than trying to align the fence to the slot anyway. The T track is now only used for feather boards and serves it's purpose well.

Though the bed is not flat and the insert can deform under load I have not found either to be a problem so long as I use feather boards. They also give a better cleaner cut than hand feeding alone.

I have now been producing just about every job with sliding dovetails and lock rabbet draws. A tennon jig with my fence takes care of any vertical needs. The fence also allows me to use it as a jointer ......

The lift is smooth and has a lock - not mentioned in the spec - The router has performed well under some heavy loads with a 20mm bit, its the biggest bit I have. I have also really liked having the depth and speed controlls to the front of the table rather than having to ferret around under the table for adjustments.

I am very happy with the table and would recommend it.

Harry

Recently bought another of these machines the delivery was super fast, my first machine burnt out after four years so for the price and the amount of work it did it was worth buying another one one niggle the plastic guard has a crack in it so just hope it lasts overall excellent service and products

Nick Wright

While this is cheap, it is a bit disappointing to be honest. When I first received mine it was supplied with insufficient holes in the fence to secure the guides. When that was sorted I found it impossible to make accurate cuts because the steel deck is not flat (nowhere near) and I ended up taking the lifting motor out (which is alright) and fitting it to an aluminium topped table with a resin insert. After a lot of faff I now have an accurate but still small router table. The table as supplied is useless for any accurate work at all but alright I suppose if you are just cutting some rough profiles. So £150 for a budget motor on a basic adjustable height mechanism, is that good value?

Bob

Good value for money. As others have said, instructions are poor, but sorted out eventually. The tip about using a toilet flush connector on the dust extractor was excellent, thanks!
Mitre gauge fits poorly and I was looking for something better, but the T-slot is non-standard, so others sold by Rutlands don't fit, which is a shame.

John Peterson

Have used this a couple of times now and it works very well and good value for the money. Reading the assembly instructions should be a last resort as they are none existent. The other reviews helped me in locating the spindle and elevator locks. I fitted a WC Pan flush pipe internal connector to the dust port (£2.02 from B&Q)this takes a 40mm pipe or in my case the end of a Numatic Henry hose it works ok unless you get a chip large enough to jam in the hose ( I was rebating into a section of Beech block worktop. However as others have said a large amount of dust drops through the spindle aperture.

Michael Harvey

Very impressive little router table which has all you need except the router bits. The assembly instructions are very poor, so just look at the pictures on the Rutlands website. Locking the chuck is by a latch beneath the table and likewise, when you've adjusted the bit height there is a locking wheel on the adjustment spindle.

Ken Pemberton

Initially setup was fun, as the instructions are worse than useless, but it was an enjoyable challenge and honestly not that difficult. Two of the lock-down knobs supplied were missing their threaded inserts, but a quick email to Rutlands resulted in replacements immediately being dispatched.

Nothing to complain about here. Haven't used it much apart from a couple of test runs, but it's quieter than I'd expected, and very low vibration. The dust collection could be better, as a fair amount falls down around the motor. I'll address that by boxing up the bottom and splitting the vacuum between top & botton. Or maybe just box it up and vacuum it out periodically.

At this price-point, it's an absolute winner. I already had a home-made table (basically a board with a hole in it), and this is a major upgrade. It's big and solid and sturdy. The front-accessed height-adjuster is WAY convenient, and with the included motor, fence and feather-boards, it's a true bargain. Nice one, Rutlands!

Steve Kirby

I have not used the piece of kit yet but it feels robust and good value.
Only problem was the instuctions were very very poor for assembly.
The bonus point for me was the speed of delivery. I ordered on Tuesday and got it delivered by UPS on Thursday to FRANCE! SUPERB SERVICE. Please pass on your system to other major retailers i.e. Amazon

I wanted a router table so I could route wood in ways which are not possible with a hand router. I decided to buy the powered router table from Rutlands since this gave height adjustment using a hand wheel on the table as well as a variable speed integrated router motor. As others found the instructions need improvement and for me the first two would be a photograph from the back of the table (so that it was clear how the fence etc was connected to the table) and another photograph from underneath to show the hook used to stop the router rotating when tightening the collet and the collar which is used to lock the height adjustment. I am an occasional DIY woodworker but within a few weeks I have successfully used the router to make trays with finger joints to fix the sides together. The finger joints needed a jig and I found on the internet several videos which explained how this can be done. It was simple to use the jig on the Rutlands router table. All in all a very worthwhile purchase. I would add that I also purchased the Digital Height Gauge -DKB100- which has been invaluable in setting the router bit height and measuring the actual depths of grooves that have been cut.

Veronica Burd

I'm a novice woodworker and bought this as a Christmas present for myself once I saw the £60 price drop. The unit arrives with the router already mounted in the table and all that's left is to set up the fence and featherboards and fit a router bit. The instructions could do with a bigger diagram but it didn't take long at all to figure out what screws went where.

As to performance, I've used it a bit and it certainly seems more than able to cope with whatever I'll throw at it. Couldn't test the dust collection as I don't have the correct size fitting to match my equipment.

All in all very pleased with it.

Antti-ville Reinikainen

+ very good value router table
+ powerful
+ dust extraction works pretty good
+ featherboards work great
+ height adjustment is good
+ table is sturdy
- bad instructions (you get the idea without them though)
- collet is really tight at first
- Some adjustments are placed rather clumsily
- router axle lock is placed inconveniently

Colin Chettleburgh

I honestly don't know how this can be done for the money. A standalone, mini spindle moulder for this money? I've only just tried a couple of test pieces on it but the height adjustment is great, the motor has plenty of grunt and the powder coated table is very rigid. AND you get to keep your router for other work. I guess it wouldn't stand up to commercial use but for occasional use in a hobby workshop, it's a bargain! What looks like an identical model (except colours) is available elsewhere for the same money but I felt much more confident buying from Rutlands. Highly recommended.

Rhodri David

I am extremely pleased with this table. In my opinion I would not bother with any of the other cheaper unpowered tables, I would just go for this one. I bought a cheaper unpowered table and soon realised that I wasted nearly £70. I then bought this one and was delighted. The up-down adjustment is excellent, and spot on accuracy. Its also 1/2 and a 1/4" collet size, very handy. Well worth it.

Michael Schofield

Well made sturdy router table. Bit Changing and depth (raise/lower settings) made simple. Although I'm not a pro joiner I was delighted with the raised panel doors I was able to easily make on the table. The supplied 1/4 & 1/2 inch collets make this router well worth the money.

Richard Holt

Some have said the router drops down when in use but there is a locking collar fitted to the shaft of the adjusting mechanism which holds it in place adequately. This however is not mentioned in the manual.
It is simple to put together, the fence on mine IS at right angles to the table.
The spindle lock is located below the table and is easy to find with your hand and simple to use, and it does work, however it is not mentioned in the manual in the collet changing section but is shown in a rather poorly lit photo with no indication what it is.
The machine is cheap so I was not expecting too much, but it does do the job and rather well. I may have been lucky to have a fully functional item, which IS ready to use with no tinkering, or it may be that the manufacturer has paid attention and responded to previous criticisms. If only they would spend more time addressing the poor manual.
Overall, worth the money and far better than the previous table I had with separate router fitted.

Allan Frost

The instructions are not great but it really is common sense. Put together in about an hour. For the price it is impressive, a few issues the main one being the fence is not at 90 degrees to the table, this took some tweaking but got there, I will probably make a new fence. I have put a few metres of soft wood through it with no issues, it is relatively quiet and the variable speed is very useful. I have not had an issue with the height adjuster moving but I can see how this could be a problem in time. The spindle lock was awkward to find at first but it works well. I cannot do anything other than 4 stars just for what you get for the price.

Christopher Buckingham

I found this Router Table to be surprisingly well made for the price, although there is a lot of plastic on it, the wearable parts are steel, I would say that if I only complete two jobs with it, it will have been worth buying, the instructions are very rudimentary, so you need to be on the ball with using these to figure out things like the spindle lock etc, but it all works!

Allan Hamlen

I have been looking for a reliable router table with its own motor for a while. I have two routers, which I use for different jobs and did not wish to tie them up by fitting them to a table.
This table is perfect for my small woodcraft shop. Well made and for the price very solid and well designed, providing all the necessary adjustment you would require to make the cuts, rebates etc.
Two collets 1/4" and 1/2" are provided so all size bits are covered. To change the bits just pull a lever under the table to lock the drive and change you bit. Could not be more simpler.
Great tool, highly recommend it and great value for money.

Peter Slade

Although the first one had an electrical fault Rutlands very quickly replaced it. For the price this is a great piece of kit. Requires virtually no assembly and although at the time of writing have only used it for a couple of jobs it has performed very well.

George Mills

Delighted with this router table. Arrived within the specified time, (I live in Ireland), delivery agent knew how to get to my address, which was a surprise as I live in a remote area. The router table itself arrives with minimum assembly required, however I had the same trouble as the other reviewers, the instructions for assembly were awful, needed a magnifying glass to work out what went where, but the job was done within an hour. As this is my first powered table didn't know what to expect, to tell the truth, never really used a router before but tried a few test pieces on scrap and found it a delight to use, powerful motor, well designed, fenced needed a little adjustment but otherwise very, very happy

Andrew Kemp

excellent machine for the money, only downside i've found so far is the height adjustment needs to have additional locking function as it tends to drop as you're using it but you can make an additional lock yourself although i do think they could have forseen this and rectified it at the manufacturing stage. overall i'm really pleased with the machine though.

Stan Head

Good solid table. I found putting together easy, but did not understand how to lock the spindle to tighten the collet. A phone call to Rutlands made soon sorted out my stupidity. My 2 complaints are: The rise and fall of the cutter - spindle unit, IN MY MACHINE, is not stable but falls slowly with use, Additionally one cannot get back to the same height easily(backlash- hysteresis on the thread), I have fitted a protractor and pointer to the raise/lower knob and 'lock the knob with sticky tape. I find the fence does not really work well and so have re-drilled holes to get the plastic components closer together, AND have purposely used the router cutters to cut their own shape in the plastic fences. This gives a much more precise control of depth of cut. I have now cut over 100 mtrs of solid oak- ( 4"x2")and have blunted 4 cutters, the table is still working well, except for 3 days of being unable to lower the cutting height, fiddling with the raise/lower mechanism under the top, somehow sorted this. I have 2 hand help Routers, this table is now my preferred Router tool.

John

Great bit of kit. Was damaged when received but Rutlands swiftly replaced broken parts. Used it quite a bit and it has performed flawlessly. One criticism is the user manual that could have been better illustrated and described.

B Lycett

I'm very pleased with this powered router table, it is better than I expected it to be both in build quality and performance! I have at last been able to free up my hand held router that I was using in a detached router table!

Martin

Bought this for our workshop to free up a router and as a stop gap before buying a higher end router lift. We cannot fault it, its used on a daily basis and has never failed us. Excellent product for the money.

Big AL

NOT BAD BUT BE PREPARED TO TINKER.
I must qualify this review by saying I have only just put it together and had a play around with it. I might come back and (re)review it again.
On the plus side, it made a surprisingly good job of some test pieces I put through it. It seems quite powerful and while it is a little rough around the edges, it will be fine for domestic and hobby use.
As others have said the assembly instructions are woefully inadequate, and when I called Rutlands they emailed me a PDF of the same instructions that were in the box. So it really was trial and error and using the images from this very page. I cannot really comment on the precision yet, but my gut instinct says it is going to require some tinkering and home made mods to make it acceptably accurate. For the money you really cannot be expecting a quality tool but it seems reasonable value and this is why I have given it 4 out of 5.

David Robinson

Great value for the money, I also spent time try to put together the stand as some of the hole didn't line up, so just re-drilled my own the router lift is great spot on for the work it as already done . The only niggle I had was the 2 self adhesive rulers came unstuck so had to re-align and glue back down . love this piece of kit .I have now mounted on lockable wheels so I can wheel it any where in the workshop

Raymond Floyd

What a piece of kit, Easy to set up and no problem getting it ready for work it came with a broken extractor port but a quick phone call to Rutland's was answered very quickly by a new part in the post next day.
Very quite compared to my last router and large enough to do the work I bought it for.
I got the stand for it as well but when I came to build the stand the instructions were no good at all, so I spent the next couple of hours using trial and error and it all worked out in the end, I am now the proud owner of a very robust piece of kit that should give me many years of service.
The height adjustment is very good and variable speed as well, I have tried out this kit on a few pieces and am very pleased with the result thanks for all your help guys especially finding a new guard for me, brilliant

Chris Curl

It is what it is
Mine came I had to shim underneath the router to level cutters up it works fine now it's D I Y special

Stephen Mance

My first router table and a good choice. I have a small workshop and space is at a premium. The table is robust enough but the fence and feather boards are a bit flimsy though. On the downside, my 5 year old Grand Daughter could of done a better job with the instruction book. Typical of todays culture there a 5 pages of health & safety backside covering and a couple of grainy black and white photos to figure out what goes where. This web page is more useful and by trial an error you will get there. However, all in all I am very pleased with the purchase.

Nigel Wyant

What a great bit of, kit very sturdy with a good steel top. I must admit I didnt even look at the instructions its all pretty intuitive . The only one thing im not sure about is the durability of the mechanics but realistically this is great value for money tool which if it packs up after warranty I will not be to aggrieved to throw it away and buy a new one. The one thing that would take this from 99% to 100% would be the addition of the plastic moulding to hold router cutters. I had a similar table years ago which had the same side mouldings and these had a clip in plastic tray with slots for your router bits.

Keith Calcutt

Great value for the money. A little crude in places but nothing that a little ingenuity cannot fix. The fence is a bit low so I am using my old one but the original is easily modified. If the motor is reliable and I have no reason to doubt that it isn't I'm a happy man. I only have one reservation and that is when the collet begins to wear, and they all do eventually, is this going to make the whole table obsolete? It would be nice to be able to purchase a spare now.

Sean A

A great hobby router table, sturdy and with easy height adjustment and a reasonable powered router included. I'm so far very pleased with the item. However when you get the assembly instructions the best thing to do with them is recycle them into toilet paper. The instruction make no sense at all your far better off using common sense and deduction to work out what goes where and which bolts, nuts, screws and knobs go where. What should have taken ten to fifteen minutes to assemble took me nearly an hour.

Peter Drake

Excellent quality for the price. Cutter rises and falls without snagging, the fence is easy to move and set up square and the router motor itself seems capable of what I ask it. My only complaint is the spindle lock. Situated where it is and the fact you have to keep it pulled down while changing collets or cutters, does make it rather fiddly. However, this is a mere blip on an otherwise excellent machine. When I've made space in my workshop, I'll definitely buy the stand to give me a bit of extra storage.

Charlie Dempsey

I've never been able to purchase a full size router table as quite simply, I do not have the space for one. This is perfect, not only do I not need a separate router, it fits perfectly on my worktop. It's a great piece of kit and one I am glad you have started selling, THANK YOU!
