JessEm - Router Table 03140
This top-quality router table from JessEm has a sturdy anodized aluminum base and good optional fence accessories.
The author evaluated 13 router tables for the sturdiness of their tables and fences, for dust collection, and for ease of operation and setup. A good router table is flat and has a stout base and a fence able to support jigs and hold-downs.
The JessEm was his favorite. The quality is top notch. The anodized aluminum base is exceptionally sturdy and fits together with a welcome precision. The fence, one of the two best in the survey, is mounted securely with brackets at both edges of the table. Large, easy-to-reach knobs lock it to the brackets. Scales on the brackets make it a breeze to place the fence precisely. The fence also has a scale to provide accurate jig, stop, or hold-down placement. The optional Mite-R-Slide miter gauge provides for accurate crosscuts without requiring the fence to be mounted perfectly parallel to the miter slot.
