I really like the way my new router table turned out with the ProMaxRT top and the Incr lift. The cabinet is Norm Abram's design with a couple of minor modifications.

Great Router Table Top!
Great router table top - pricey but worth it. Had to slighty modify to accept my Kreg router fence (epoxied/screwed hardwood block on right side to accept mounting bracket for the Kreg fence - very simple and quick modification) but well worth the effort. Table top is very heavy, close to 100 lbs and extremely stable. Kreg fence/Benchdog top make a phenomenal combination - extremely accurate set-ups!.

This is an extremely solid, stable router table. In my opinion it substantially enhances the accuracy of the work I do on my router table. I bought it with the enclosed metal cabinet, which I also like very much (especially after adding the drawer fittings and building a drawer for my router bits and accessories). A router depth adjuster is a must with this router table so bit depth can easily be adjusted from the top of the table.

Can't beat cast iron!
Had the Pro Phenolic table top along with the Rockler Router Lift FX. Was working on some small parts and notices I couldn't get an even cut. I put a straight edge across the table and could see a dip in the center of the table. I wasn't able to get the lift and the top in coplaner. That's when I decided to go with the cast iron Bench Dog cast iron router table top.

When it arrived, I found I had a problem as I wanted to mount my Rockler Dust Bucket underneath and it wasn't drilled out for that. I mounted some 2x2 stock underneath after drilling holes through the castings. I then planed off wood from the 2x2's so they would match the curve of the casting. This worked like a charm (see photo).

I mounted my dust bucked and then mounted the top. I inserted the router plate and took my time to align it to the cast iron top. Absolutely flat! Was worth the price of admission!

wish I'd bought this years ago
was trying to use a new lock miter joint bit and could not get it to work. Finally figured out that my Bench Dog composite top was no longer flat. The cast iron top was just what the doctor ordered. However the Jessem Router Lift wouldn't fit into it. I finally had to file down a few protuberances on both the aluminum lift and the cast iron opening. Took about an hour. Works perfectly now

Easy install
A perfect fit on the right side of my Laguna Fusion table saw. Required 4 M8 1.5" bolts & 2 T slot bolts. No drilling required, but I'll probably add a bolt on the back rip fence angle iron, just because the top adds weight and I use the angle iron to tilt the saw onto it's wheels. My Rockler lift dropped in and leveled up in minutes. This is one of the best space saving choices I've made.

BEST ANSWER: Sorry, did not mount the cast iron top, but curious to know your results? the cart top is solid angle iron and flat so modifications should be minor, please advise me because I am interested in acquiring the top myself. I purchased the wheel kit and the stand is sturdy, strong and maneuverable.

Will this mount to my Grizzly table saw G0771?

BEST ANSWER: I assume that your Grizzly table s award has a cast iron top. Therefore. I don’t think trying to mount the Kreg plate will mount wiwuthout t a tremendous amount of work.

The lift years ago. My set up time has reduced by 75%. I'm not up to date with the Jessem Master-R-

Will this unit bolt up to my riggid 4512 table saw ?
Paul F on Jan 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This model is intended to be a stand alone unit. I did, however, bolt mine to my Jet tablesaw by drilling new holes in both units. Either which way, it won't bolt on without a lot of drilling & tapping the holes into the tablesaw table.
