Other features to consider when choosing your router are the ease of height adjustments and bit changing, the handle style (D-handles are most commonly recognized as being best) the plunge smoothness on plunge routers, vibration and available dust control. A few key points that you need to bear in mind when deciding which router is best for you include:
Next Glue the sides down and even wrap around to the bottom of the rail. Then trim off all of the excess using a utility knife.
Another important feature not often thought about is quality and customer service. With a tool like a router that you will most likely keep for the rest of your woodworking life, having a company that stands behind its tools and is willing to help you answer questions about features and options is more then just important: it’s critical. Many users have complained about various customer service centers even from the major players, but several have stood out in recent reviews. Perhaps more important even then the service is the need for it – some units such as the Bosch 1617EVSPK have recurring complaints about the switch brakes, probably indicating a persistent problem but no brand is immune. Users seem to have the most complaints about Bosch and Porter-Cable but it may be that these models sell in greater quantities and not that there are inherent problems with specific models.
The next step is to assemble the rail. These pieces will be glued and screw together. Dry fit the 3 pieces together to see which way they fit the best.
The three things you need to consider when it comes to router table plans are the accuracy, the skill level required, and the price.
If you have tried to cut grooves or dadoes in a small project you should think about making a Sliding Top for your router table. It is very handy and safe and makes jobs go faster.
