You’ll like this router table if… you don’t have the space or budget for a full sized router table. This is a premium router table, just in a small size. Perfect for weekend woodworkers or even skilled woodworkers. This would be a great choice is you need a portable router table for the job site. This table is affordable enough that if you’re looking for a second table (yea I know, sounds extreme until you have a second table and you realize how great it is to not have to constantly change to your most popular router bit).
Kreg prs2000 Router Table Review
By Mark Adams, Senior Editor, Wood Tools Magazine
Is this the right table for you? This router table is for anyone who is upgrading from their homemade router table, doesn’t have enough space for a floor model or who needs a portable table that will last a lifetime and cut with true precision.
You’ll be happy with it if you’re looking for your first router table or you do the occasional woodworking project.
You’ll love this table if you don’t have the space for a floor model or a lot of your work is at different locations.
This table is not for you if you are a serious woodworker who makes advanced projects like raised panels or other complex projects on a regular basis. But I would say that for any benchtop model. A larger floor model is best for this use.
This table has most of the features that the Kreg floor model has with the exception of the tablesaw type sliding fence. The included knob adjustable fence works fine.
For anyone who has ever used other Kreg products like their pocket hole system, knows that Kreg makes a quality product. This Kreg router table is no exception.
It’s sturdy, yet lightweight steel frame provides an excellent base that helps reduce vibration that leads to a better quality cut.
It has a sturdy fence system that assures the fence is 90 degrees to the table. It also has the capacity to easily convert to a vertical jointer. There’s even a tape measure on top to make small adjustments to the workpiece.
The fence also has a dustport to connect to a shop vacuum. This feature is not common on many portable models.
There are a couple of concerns. The plate does not have multiple insert rings. If you would like to use larger diameter bits, this could be an issue. This is not major, I used a router table without any rings for years and was fine, but you at least need to be aware of this. As mentioned above, this table is not for making raised panel doors using large horsepower routers. Since you’re not going to use it for that purpose, the ring size is perfectly spaced for it’s intended use.
The other factor is cost. It does cost more than some other portable tables. But if you believe value is getting what you pay for then you’ll be OK here, because overall this is a really good table for the money.
We have all bought tools based on low price and are disappointed after a few uses. The old saying you get what you pay for applies here.
This table is an excellent portable router table. It routes as well as the Kreg full sized model, it’s just a smaller. Yes, more expensive than cheap low end benchtop tables, but this is a table you could route with precision and happily use for the rest of you life and by the way save a lot of space.
If you have limited space or need portability, the Kreg PRS 2000 is an excellent choice.
