While it may sound like the perfect router table for both professionals and DIY users is an improbability – we are glad we were proved wrong in this case! Finally, there is a complete system that saves you both time and space in the workshop. Our review is off to a good start so let’s go into more detail on exactly why this might be a great new addition for you.
Adapts to Your Requirements
Being a multi-purpose table is an achievement in itself seeing how we all need to shift position and swap places on our woodworking projects. When precision demands it no one should spare on their gear to cut corners and spend more time unnecessarily. The key to efficiency is to not spend most of your work on the move. The PRS1045 Table system promises to keep you in one spot with the only occasional movement for repositioning.
It is fully adjustable and we appreciate the fact that there was lots of thinking during the design process by the manufacturer about all possible usage scenarios. The thoughtful layout allows users to fit powerful saws and keeps vibration of the whole platform at low levels. This helps precision and also reduces fatigue, especially during long hour sessions.
Moving around the working surface and pivoting is non restrictive and allows for lots of movement freedom. Because of the smart design, you will be able to fit big cabinets and dust storage space with ease. Anyone working in smaller size workshops will appreciate its compact size the most.
You also get a micro adjustment measuring scale, heavy-gauge steel stand that offers from 29” and up to 35” height setting and four leg levelers.
As for the table saws that you will be able to use on this table system – from our experience – we were using models with up to 3 hp without any issues. The platform is stable and secure and offers total precision no matter what you’re working on. The user manual is easy to understand which makes the whole set-up an easy experience and relatively fast at that. For more details be sure to consult the online manual too.
Things We Didn’t Like
We dislike the fact that the fit and finish of the whole system are lackluster at some places and it is disappointing to see that there are manufacturing mishaps on a relatively expensive product.
Experienced users will manage to correct some misalignments while DIY enthusiasts might possibly struggle to perform corrections. The higher complexity of the whole package will also appear daunting for beginners that might not need the whole system especially since there are more affordable alternative router table models available on the market.
As your skill improves you will need to invest more in your gear so why not do it all at once at a reasonable value.Whether you’re a pro or a beginner craftsmen we feel like you gain a lot with such a great all in one system.It will certainly be a perfect addition to any size of a workshop for sure.
