Dewalt makes a router table that is designed to hold the router safely in place and make the process more convenient. The table holds the router securely in place so it is not wobbly or damaging the router bits. The table also features a fence for precise cutting. With the router bit fence, you can cut straight and precise lines. The table also has a built-in dust collection that captures the debris and prevents it from flying around and damaging your router.
The router table is one of the most useful tools in your shop for contractors and professionals. Although Dewalt manufactures router tables, they are not available individually. The table saw comes with a combo if a person purchases one from Dewalt.
Can you use any router with a router table?
Yes, it’s totally possible to use any router on any router table. There are several ways to accomplish this, but the easiest way is to buy an adapter designed to fit your router. We do this on our own router table, and it works great.
Therefore, we can say the DeWalt router fits in a Bosch router table, and the DeWalt router fits in a Kreg router table.
In order to use a router mounted on a tabletop, it must be supported on the table with a rail or miter. It must also be secured to the table with a track. It is surprising to find that routers that are not designed specifically for table use are the least expensive and perform just as well.
Do you need a router table to use a router?
If you’re like most woodworkers, you already own a router and you’ve got the bits to keep it going. You can’t deny the fact that an extra tool in the shop is always nice to have.
The router table has many benefits over a handheld router, but one thing you’ll notice is that it makes switching from bit to bit much simpler. Try using a handheld router with a guide fence and you’ll quickly reach for the router table. It’s a no-brainer. So, handheld routers can be used without a router table.
Is it worth buying a router table?
Dewalt routers are some of the most popular routers on the market, and they’ve made a name for themselves with their cost-effective, versatile router tables. That said, do you really need a router table to make your router work?
If you’re using a router table to cut molding, yes, that’s definitely a good idea. However, if you’re using the table solely for routing and cutting smaller project pieces, a router table may not be necessary. Even if you’re going to do some of both, you can still use a regular router table.
Do I need a router guide?
When using a handheld router, the edge of the workpiece you are cutting needs to be supported at both ends. This is easily done using a router guide. Through the years, router guides have evolved into different shapes and sizes. There are some very specialized router jigs that make it easy to accurately cut from one edge to the other. However, routers can also be used without a router guide if you are careful.
The Dewalt saw is more than a table saw, and you get all the components that you need to assemble a router table that is durable and dependable. You would have to buy the parts separately and build the router table to have the same features as the Dewalt router table.
