I needed to make quite a few drawers with dove tails. Not wanting to be going back and forth from Dovetail bit and straight bit I decided to buy another router so I would have a router for each bit. Best decision I ever made.

what router table for this router?
gary d on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I was able to get a complete set at a very good price, I want to say $399.00 but not positive as I can't find the receipt. The Table was a High Pressure Laminate Router Table Top Part # 46924. Also got the Phenolic Router Plate Part #54820. Router Table Leg set Part #48426. Also got the Router Table Fence Part # 58215. Finally he through in for me the 4 pcs Router Table Assessory Kit Part #5676. All five parts together made for a great Router Table that should last me for years to com. Since my purchase I did get a new Router Lift which is really helpful. Anyhow, that's my recommendation that worked great for my shop.

Will it fit a “Bench Dog” table saw attachment?
Ernest R on Dec 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It should fit. You need to order the correct router plate with the bench dog kit. Router plate A may fit but if not, you can order a blank and drill the mounting holes yourself.

The dust collection on the plunge base is excellent. But where is the dust collection for the fixed base? I want to use it in a router table with dust collection from underneath. Is there an accessory for this?
Tommy T on Nov 5, 2018
I've been using thE 895 outside of my Rockler table and want to put it back into the table. I need help remembering how and where I insert the micro height adjuster so it supports the router and I can easily adjust the height?? Tom - Denver
