A router table top is a requirement for a woodworking shop

It’s said, when you plant your work piece on the router table, it’s a cut of wood, and when you detach it from there, it’s a cabinet. A Bosch or Bench dog router table can be a pro’s tool for any wood worker.

A router table can be a handy magic wand to render top notch furniture or crafts with wood.
The services a router table renders are too many to be listed here. But some are worth mentioning:
– Allows variable profiles for edges
– Can follow templates
– Groove and dado cutting
– Extremely useful for cutting precious joinery
– Doors building (raised panel)
– Wood rounding
– Comes in lots of different sizes like bench top.
– Varied types of router bits are cheap
– Table for routers can be easily made, but table saws can’t be.
– Many Additions are usable with routers to make numberless projects easier.

Router bits are magic. You don’t need to own 100 individual cutting or slotting instruments in your shop. If you have a simple Bosch or a Bench Dog router, a router table and own a dozen router bits, that’s enough to produce 50 different types of cuts by just changing the router bits. Routers can be used for many tasks like:

Biscuit joinery
Face framing bits
Box joints
Laminate trimming
Lock mitres for strong joints
Round overs
Rabbets
Fluting
Dovetail joinery
Mullion cut
and much, much more

Routering on a table is desirable for the convenience of use, and it helps you keep your work area or workplace clean and composed. When the workplace is organized it will make your job a satisfying one and boost your proficiency as well.
So how do router tables keeps everything clean? Simply, by employing dust collectors. I use a dry-vac with my table. They are great for removing saw dust as the router cuts.

Talking about my personal router table and bits, I keep everything organized and at the right place, next to my hands with a router table cabinet with multiple drawers. Other wise it would have been very difficult to keep all those Allen wrenches, bits, Collet wrenches and speed controls in one places. You too, can have things grouped and ready for use, if you keep everything stored using a under table cabinet.

Search the net will help you find out what’s available for your router table needs. Do some study, learn about the products and pick the right one for your tasks. To name a few, Bosch router tables and Bench Dog Router tables are among the best quality tables available in the market today.

2 Great Jobsite Table Saws for Heavy-Duty Users

Purchasing a jobsite table saw is a serious investment and one that will surely affect you in the long-term. Consequently, finding one that will continually meet your needs as a craftsmen is possibly the most crucial step in the buying process. The most industrial, heavy-duty users clearly require the most high-quality equipment, and, fortunately, in the world of jobsite table saws, there are two that seem to cast shadows over the competition. With commanding power and innovation these saws come from Makita and Bosch, two manufactures that have continually shaped the industry with high-performance tools and technology. Makita’s 2704X1 (10″) contractor’s table saw is a superior quality saw designed for superior accuracy. Its precision machined, die cast aluminum table top delivers exactly that, an uncommon degree of precision and strength throughout every project. The table-top is designed to remain flat despite heavy work and wear, and with a large cut capacity, even without its standard right extension table, (3-5/8″ at 90 degrees and 2-1/2″ at 45 degrees) the saw roughly rips 4x material in one pass. With its extension table, on another hand, the saw’s capacity is even larger ripping 4 x 8 sheets of plywood with surprising ease. The saw also has a built-in storage area with the capacity to hold your most frequently used accessories like a saw blade, rip fence, miter gauge, and etc. This on-site storage keeps your most returned to items all in the same place and perfectly within reach. Additionally, the table saw features wider, deeper T-slot miter grooves to accept the most industrial T formed shanks, even those made by different manufacturers, rendering the saw versatile and universally accommodating. For the most efficient and smoothest blade depth adjustment the saw also offers a simple two pole slide system for raising and lowering the blade. Lastly, but certainly not least, the saw packs a 15 amp motor, to perfectly couple supreme power with uncommon precision. Bosch builds another jobsite table saw to compliment the most heavy-duty users. Their 4100-09 (10″) worksite table saw is built with a seriously heavy-duty construction designed to withstand the many bumps and bruises of jobsite life. Built for durability the tool is coated with a powder paint finish to maximize overall longevity, and with Bosch’s patented Gravity-Rise stand, the saw is surprisingly simple to manage. Ensuring the motions of set-up and take down are a much less frustrating process, the stand is uniquely impressive. Additionally, the tool is supremely portable, and with a collapsible design the tool stores well and transports from one jobsite to another with terrific simplicity. The table saw additionally boasts 8″ treaded pneumatic wheels so, like a fierce, all terrain table saw, the tool confidently maneuvers through difficult jobsite environments. Ultimately, Bosch’s 4100-09 table saw is designed to bring heavy-duty craftsmen a table saw and stand that will consistently up the ante with brilliant power, precision and authority. Exemplifying the most elite of the jobsite table saw community, these saws will prove a sound investment to those heavy-duty craftsmen searching for long-term commitment.
