What experts liked
Both the infeed and the outfeed are able to extend for up to 2 inches to support your working piece. The jointing fence also offsets by up to 9/16 of an inch.

The router itself is quite powerful, running at 27,000 rpm and operating on 9.4 amps. The table has a power strip included so you can keep your tools plugged in at the workstation itself and use the extra long cord to plug them in at the wall.

The Craftsman’s fence is both extendable and adjustable. Both the infeed and outfeed stretch out to two inches, so you can fit a variety of larger bits through the holes.

The fence can easily be adjusted for a proper bit clearance, with the infeed and outfeed extending up to 2 inches, and the miter gauge can also be adjusted up to 60 degrees in both directions. Furthermore, it comes equipped with a dust extraction port, and 3 insert rings that have opening diameters of 1-1/4″, 1-1/2″, and 1-3/4″.

Its cutting depths can lock down in microfine adjustments and the fence adjusts for proper bit clearance, with the infeed and outfeed extending up to two inches. The cutting height adjustment works with most of the Craftsman routers.

As this set comes with its own router, you don’t need to purchase that tool separately. You also get a power strip on the table that let you plug in other tools that you need.

The table’s fence adjusts for proper bit clearance, with the infeed and outfeed capable of extending up to two inches, and the jointing fence offsetting up to 9/16 inches. A standard dust extraction port is available for shop vac hook-ups, keeping the cutting area cleaner during use.

When compared to other router tables, this unit is more cost-effective, and one of the reasons for that is its surface. Rather than using cast iron or steel, this table is lighter and more maneuverable, which can help you out if you have to keep it in storage when not in use. Still, the laminate is durable and smooth, ensuring that you don’t have any issues while working.

What experts didn't like
The main downside to this router table is that it isn’t made from especially strong materials. The table inserts are plastic, as are the knobs and tabs. They can break pretty easily, so your table might not last as long as you’d like.

No rubber caps on the legs; the table may wobble.
