WOOD magazine review

Premium router table delivers accuracy, robust performance

Review Summary

Excalibur’s deluxe router table eliminates all the problems I’ve had with other router tables. First, the dead-flat cast-iron top prevents sagging and eliminates vibration. And the aluminum-plate router lift delivers pinpoint precision for making bit-height adjustments with no measurable backlash (a brief hesitation in height change when you switch directions). The lift works with any 1-1/2-hp or larger router motor, raising the collet high enough that you can change all bits above the table.
The removable crank inserts into a hexagonal hole on top, far enough forward to change bit heights even with the fence in place. To keep dust and chips contained, a metal enclosure surrounds the router and lift under the table. The 4" dust port combines with an adjustable inlet to draw in fresh air, moving the chips and cooling the router motor. Also, a 2-1/2" hose channels chips from the fence to the port, giving superb dust collection. Finally, this table has plenty of slots for using accessories, such as featherboards, hold-downs, stops, coping sleds, and miter gauges. Granted, this table ranks among the highest-priced on the market, but I can’t imagine one that’s better made. —Tested by Ruth Walker for WOOD Magazine
