    The set up blocks work well, I just find them a bit limiting as I don’t really stick to the set sizes a lot of time.

    I went and bought these two Wixey gauges. One is on the planer and the other moves around. They are both pretty good. REALLY good for how cheep they are. I use them for setting initial heights.

    I have been debating which router to get.
    What other differences are there besides .05 HP? 1617EVSPK and MRC23EVSK

    One big advantage on the MRC23EVSK is the power button in on the handle. It also has LED light.

    I had a hard time deciding which one to get also, But I ended up getting the MRC23EVSK kit and I use it in router table. I think it fine for that, I thought I was going to be using it for both in and out of the table but so far that’s where it lives. And now that I’ve got the Colt it’ll probably stay there till I come across a job that the Colt can’t handle, Was it the best option? fiik but it does the job

    If you are only going for one router set, get the MR23 IMO.

    From there replace with an 1617 for the table and then get a colt…

    You need them all!

    cannot have too many routers thats for sure

    I keep hearing that…not sure why though! I have three, but one almost never gets used.

    @crotalusco why do you need so many routers? Do you leave them set up for a specific use?

    I have 1 trim router, used for laminate and for rounding over uses. I have one set up for a table. Then yes when building furniture i prefer to leave one or more set up. Typically I have one always set with a plywood bit for dado work

    Yep Sven’s router table/workbench really came out nice. Anyone building a bench that does a of routing can get some good ideas from that thread.

    Yeppers LOL, I went through it all last year. I finally just did it with the MRC23, I’m not sad about it and have no regrets. And if it’s not the best for you then get the 1617 later, You can never have too many anyway

    IIRC Sven’s thread gave pretty good instructions and photos on how he did it.

    Wow I missed that one but that looks great. I’m feeling inspired to build mine into a bench now. I had thought about building mine into the extension table on my table saw but I’m not sure now.

    I can’t wait to order that table to attempt this build! Thanks Sven, and Frank for finding this for me.

    No, Thank Sven for all the hard work he did and pictures during the build.
    I can only dream I had the room in my shop for this build.

    it seems like it would work better in my shop too, to have the router table inserted in to the workbench. It’ll save much more room then if i had a dedicated router table.

    No guys, it really wasn’t hard to do. Just take your time and remember, you can always take away if you need, but can’t add if the hole is too big. I traced the top where I wanted it, then cut on the inside of the like. Where the top was too tight to fit, I sanded the opening out to get everything to fit.
