Router table recommendations?
Guys looking for recommendations for a descent one. Willing to pay a little for quality. I was leaning towards Bosch but when actually reading reviews don?t seem to be that great. Thanks

For an upper end router table I'd look for something like the following.

PRO. ROUTER TABLE PACKAGE WITH 3-1/4 HP ROUTER & PLYCORE ROUTER TOP (infinitytools.com)

On a budget I'd consider this package.

WoodRiver - Bench Router Table (woodcraft.com)

I have a router table set up on my table saw. I replaced the left side wing with melamine and then inlet a JESSUM router table base. I keep a fixed router base attached to the Jessum and then attach the router motor when needed.

Saves having a dedicated router. I have a Hitachi M12VS.

I have a similar setup. I'm not sure if D. wants an out-of-the-box solution or is considering building his own. My preference is for a shop solution like mine and yours. Having said that, even though I regularly use my router for bearing guide work and simple edge profiling, I find the shaper to be much more versatile and capable, and in the same ballpark in terms of space requirements and cost.

I didn?t realize the table saw set up was an option. Considering that now because real estate is valuable in my little area

The nice thing about a table saw setup is you use your existing table saw fence. i made a sub fence that attaches to my table saw fence.

Several companies are selling cast iron tops that can hold a router lift and be your table saw wing. I'd look into them while you are shopping.
