Kreg Tool Co. introduced its redesigned Precision Router Table System, model PRS1045, featuring updated components.
Product manager Dave Stone says the system offers now offers woodworkers the advantage of a self-squaring fence, a feature-packed tabletop and insert plate and a sturdy stand that provide an all-inclusive routing solution.
“The heart of this system is the new fence. It features a T-square style design that always stays parallel to the miter slot and is adjustable using just one hand. It has a micro-adjust wheel that simplifies setup and dual locks to keep it in position once it’s set in place,” Stone says.
The fence is made of anodized aluminum for sturdiness. It mounts to 3/4” to 1-1/2” thick tables and includes a dust-collection port and bit guard.
“Another updated component is the new tabletop that provides a 24” x 32” work area. We know it seems like just a simple tabletop, but this is an updated design that features our Easy-Slide laminate surface that allows workpieces to glide easily and has reinforcing struts to ensure a flat table surface. This durable design also makes fence removal easy for freehand routing.”
The top is made of 1”-thick MDF and it has heavy-duty insert plates that are easy to swap. It includes a set of four insert plate levelers for a secure fit.
The third component is a multipurpose shop stand featuring legs that can be adjusted to a height range of 29” to 35”.
“The individual components of the Precision Router Table System, the fence, table and stand, are also available separately allowing for people who wish to design and build their own router table or upgrade an existing router table can purchase only the components they need,” Stone adds.
The Precision Router Table System sells for $499.99.
