Folding Bench Top Router Table

The folding base on our Convertible Benchtop Router Table can be quickly reconfigured for benchtop use, wall-mounted use, or collapsed entirely for storage or transport. In addition, the unique router plate lets you quickly remove the router for freehand use, then dock it again for table use—the compact size of the plate makes it light and nimble in freehand applications. Compact and portable, yet full-featured, the table is ideal for small shops and jobsite use. Triangulate the base and mount it to the wall of your shop or to stud walls on the jobsite. Use it on your benchtop or on the tailgate of your truck, then collapse it and tuck it under the bench or into the truck cab. The Mid-Size plate’s two-piece design lets you attach your router at the correct angle so that the handles fit through the table opening.


Features:
  • Four modes in one table: benchtop, wall-mount, freehand routing and storage/transport
  • Base converts quickly from freestanding to wall-mounted—quick-release pins lock the legs in place
  • In wall-mount mode, the router can be removed and the top folded flat against the wall when not needed
  • Large non-slip feet clip into the base framing for rigidity in the various configurations
  • Pull out the router with plate for freehand use; dock it in the table for table use
  • Keyed mounting holes are 16'' on center for easy wall-mounting
  • 3/4'' miter track accepts most standard miter gauges
  • Accessory slot in fence accepts featherboards and stops
  • Tall ergonomic fence knobs for fast fence adjustments without skinning your knuckles

I love this little compact router table.
I love this little compact router table. I don't have much space in my garage, certainly not for a full size router table.
This table can be wall mounted. I actually mounted it on the side of my workbench using 2x4's.

Great Router Table
I was looking for a portable router table and zero'd in on the Rockler because of it's size and portability. Set's up Quickly and is really stable. My only complaint is that it's a little too tall when I set it on a workbench height (36") table.

Fits my needs perfectly
I have only used my table three times now and find that it fits my needs perfectly. I have a 10'X10' work shop and the storability is very important. I find that set up and take down are easily accomplished. The initial set up of the table took a little longer than was anticipated but once completed it was found to be sturdy and accurate. My Bosch router fit as advertised and works great. The construction and material are first class. I would recommend this for any small shop.

perfect first router table for a small shop
I have a small 10x20 utility barn workshop and this is a godsend. It is a big upgrade from the 1/2" birch plywood table I've been using - it has a fence!!! - and the dust collection works well for me uses. I haven't attempted rails and stiles or raised panels, but simple edge work has been blessedly easy. It transports well and shows a lot of fit and finish of a well-designed product.

Looks good, but.
Got my table just the other day and assembled it per instructions. However, instruction #11 states to insert the socket head set screws in the five holes in the base plate well and tighten them with the hex wrench. The set screws and the holes were the same size so the screws fell right thru the holes,. Fixed it by buying some #8-32 brass threaded inserts, drilling the holes to accommodate the inserts and then the set screws were able to be threaded into the inserts and tightened. these are to level the router base plate with the table top when installed. Other than that I think it will be a welcome addition to my tool inventory.

Rockler Convertible Benchtop Router Table with Insert Plate Kit for Compact Routers
While it is described that the Insert Plate for Compact Routers will accommodate a Bosch "Colt" router - be advised it is only predrilled for the 1.0 Hp model PR20EVS with the rectangular base plate. This insert plate is NOT apparently predrilled for the 1.25 Hp model GKF125CEK with the round base plate. Otherwise - it's a good router table. Easy to set-up and well thought out as a starter table and for very compact spaces

Nice but could be better
as others have stated the leveling screws do not fit the holes drilled in the table they are too small & therefore worthless. I would think Rockler would have fixed this issue since others have complained about it before.

PITA with Bosch midsize router
I bought this to use with a Bosch 1617EVSPK and regret it. The handles of the Bocsh make it impossible to pop out easily as advertised, so every time I need to remove it I have to unscrew about 12 tiny screws from the faceplate. Since it doesn't store small while the router is in place (the whole point of this table) that means, i have to unscrew all the screws every time I use it. Otherwise, it seems well made and folds well, so with other brands of routers it may be fine.

Will this work with a Craftsman 320.17543 router?
Tony V on Aug 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Rockler Convertible Benchtop Router Table is pre-drilled for many popular mid-size and compact Routers, and can be drilled for other routers.

It will NOT accept plunge routers or large routers like the 3-1/4HP Porter-Cable.
Would the Ryobi cordless router fit on this table? Model P601 18v One+ Palm Router
MikeinTX on Jul 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I just went to the store today to measure for this. You will have to drill your own pattern in a blank plate. The Ryobi P601 has a 4 point mount with the holes being 2-3/16" apart. The mounting plate that comes with this table only has one 4 point pattern but those holes are 2-3/8" apart. Hope this helps.
This table doesn't come with a miter gauge. Can an Incra gauge be used?

Kevin on Sep 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Don't have that kind of router, can't answer your question.
Will this table work with a Dremel 3000 o 4000...?
Carlos Otto C on Aug 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Dremel 3000 and 4000 are handheld rotary tools and as such are not compatible with this router table.

Bruce L on Sep 19, 2018
What router would be best for 2"Lock Miter bit?
Walter K on Aug 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would suggest the Bosch 1617, Porter Cable 890 series, or another similar router. Variable speed will be important, as will the 1/2" collet, and 2 HP or more will provide the necessary power.

Depending on the material you are creating the lock joint on, you may want to set up for more than one pass to provide a smooth, chatter-free joint.
Will you be able to use the Rockler box joint jig on this table?

Does it have emergency shutoff, or can it be added?
Mary F on Nov 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is just the table, there is no emergency shut-off of any electrical components. If you wanted to add a shut-off, it could be mounted to one of the legs, but that would eliminate its portability somewhat....
will this fit a Makita RT0701C ?
Carolyn on Aug 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Convertible Benchtop Router Table Baseplate, Compact - Item 53910 - will accommodate the Makita RT0701C and Makita RT0700C Routers along with a number of other Compact routers, such as the Dewalt 611 and Porter Cable 450.

Will this table assembly work with a Bosch 1617EV router and the RA1165 under the table base?
Danny S on Feb 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This table assembly will work with a Bosch 1617EV router and the RA1165 under the table base. I have a Bosch 1617EV fixed base on my table and it works great. I'm not sure what a RA1165 is but the insert that came with the table my router base mounted up with no problem.
Does this router table have a starter (safety) pin?
Stephen L on Feb 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Convertible Router Table insert is threaded for a Fulcrum Pin (item number 20692).
I have a ridgid 2 hp 1/2 in fixed base router. Will this table work?
Ben P on Feb 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I would not use any router rated over 1hp. It work well for me with the Dewalt 1hp, but I don't think the "portable" router station is rugged enough should a workpiece get jammed or kick back.
I have a 2.5 HP Makita router installed on a my shop made tablesaw extention….seems to be an economical way to go. Lots of plans out there on this setup. Hope this helped.
skil 1817 fit this?
goose on Jan 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You should go to the Rockler website and look at the compatibility chart - but as many holes as the insert table has, I would be surprised if it didn't fit. Make sure you choose the [full-size] insert table.
What is meant by compact and Mid-size?
James R on Nov 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Compact routers are also called "palm routers" or "trim routers" and normally provide 1 - 1.25 H.P. with 1/4" collets.

Mid-size routers include fixed base and plunge styles and typically provide approximately 2 - 2.25 H.P. with options for plunge and fixed bases.
will this work with Porter Cable 1001 router?
Quentin H on Oct 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: When you purchase the table, you select which base plate you want - 1 is for compact routers and one is for full-size routers. I believe the Porter Cable 1001 router is a full-size so that's the base plate you'll select.
is the fence a split fence that can be used as a jointer?
William S on Sep 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: no, it is a fixed fence and cannot be used as a jointer
It doesn't appear that connecting to the dust collection port would be easy or even possible if this table is mounted to a wall with sheetrock on it. There is room for the vacuum hose if a stud bay is available. Is there sufficient room for a vacuum hose when the wall is sheathed? How is the hose routed - up and to one side or is there room to go down below the table?
m w on Aug 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It all depends on how far back you need the fence. In the photo they show, the fence is pushed all the way back, but you wouldn't normally work with your fence so far from the bit. You can still attach it to the collection port and hand the hose vertically or off to the side. Obviously with sheetrock you wouldn't be able to mount it behind the table and down the wall since the table would be pretty flush to the wall, so your hose would have to hang off the side behind the fence.
Purchased this table. Have a compact DeWalt router. Does not have other router plates with larger openings. The bit I used was difficult to use because the opening needed to be larger. Does Rockler plan to offer additional plates like it does for Mid Size routers? If not they need to do so. Please advise.
Dan H on Aug 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The item number for the midsize plate is 55512.
For larger opening inserts 58028
