Two new router tables from Grizzly Industrial feature built-in, micro-adjustable router lift assemblies and cast-iron tables.
Model T28780, with a table measuring 32” wide x 24” deep, sells for $795. There are two extension wings on model T28781, creating a 56” x 24” table, which sells for $1,095.
Both tables are ideal for making raised panel doors, molding, decorative boxes or embellished edges on workpieces destined to become tabletops, bookcases, cabinets and more, says Grizzly product manager Todd Young.
“Many cuts that one would tackle with a hand-held router can be performed with improved efficiency on a stationary router table. This type of setup allows for greater cutter capacity to make cuts with larger bits not designed for use with a hand-held router. These tables provide cutting capacities that are nearly equivalent to a smaller dedicated shaper,” says Young.
He adds that the tables particularly excel when working with small stock, which can be difficult and risky to make with a hand-held router.
“The entire workpiece is supported, and the router is held firmly in place, so there’s very little chance of bit bite or other irregularities caused by an improperly supported router,” he says.
Both models are sold with a 32” x 2-3/4” aluminum fence, an aluminum table insert and stand, and have T-slots for hold-down accessories.
