Bench Dog 40-300 Protop Contractor Benchtop Router Table

The first thing that comes to mind is Mac Daddy of Router Tables! If you’re a serious woodworker and have the floor space in your shop, this table was designed for you. The only thing that would be better than this table would be maybe some type of industrial router table that was designed for factory use.
The cast iron table and solid aluminum fence means flat non warp work surfaces and a fence that allows for zero clearance routing or very little to no wood blow out.
Heavy duty steel framing and birch plywood make up the base. The design includes an extra large dust port that allows dust collection from behind and below the router. This makes clean up a breeze.
The sliding door makes for easy access to the router table. It comes with a pull out tray to hold your router bits.
You can add either doors or slide out shelves for the bottom compartments. Bench dog sells these or you can build your own. The wood absorbs vibration and helps contain noise.
If you need to move around the shop, heavy duty casters are also available. Realize the cast iron will make this heavier and harder to move than other tables.
Price can be a deterrent for this router table. But you really can’t compare this to a low end, low price table that you might find at Home Depot. However, if you are the type of user for which this table is intended, you’ll realize that this table is an investment and what you receive will far outweigh the initial purchase price.
Realize the insert plate is not included. Plates are about $50 and the bench dog plate sizes are unique to bench dog tops and particular routers. Before you buy, simply make sure you have the right plate for your particular router.
So if you’re looking for a top of the line benchtop router table that you can use for a lifetime, this is your choice! Click here at Amazon to find the best prices
