Rockler Router Table Removable Worktop

Convert your router table to an open work table—a great space-saving solution for small shops!

One way to conserve space in a small shop is to make your tools and workspaces multi-purpose. In keeping with that, this removable worktop lets you quickly convert your router table to a work table/assembly table. Machine the parts for a jewelry box with our Spline Jig or Box Joint Jig, then set the worktop in place and assemble your box. The top has a grid of lines in 1'' increments so you can square up assemblies and take rough measurements. The MDF material is dimensionally stable and stands up to heavy use.


Features:

  • Quickly convert your router table to a work surface while protecting it from damage
  • Miter bars lock into your router table's miter slot to secure worktop in place
  • 1'' grid and protractor angles let you eyeball measurements or set a T-bevel gauge
  • Handy conversion table from fractions to decimals, and imperial to metric
  • Included hooks let you store the worktop on the back of the router table
  • Hooks also hold your Rockler router table fence when worktop is in use

(2) Storage hooks

Great work space.
I like the fact that it protects my router table top. I was going to cut a piece of plywood to put on it and I would have had to clamp it on top. This works a lot better! It is easy to attach and remove without the use of clamps in the way and it came with its own hangers. like some of the other reviewers my hangers were bent in shipping and the top had a couple of dings on the sides. I straightened the hangers out and they worked fine. The dings are cosmetic. Rockler has great tools and good sales but there shipping department needs work in the packing area. I am really happy with my purchase otherwise.

Talk about a Layout tool.
Absolutely! When figuring a repair to a cabinet, I can layout some of the broken parts to get a size for a new part. Or even when coming up with a new shop project to build. This top has all the features needed to work out details for angles and sizes.

Router Table Removable Worktop
I highly recommend this worktop! It’s great to be able to use my router table as an extra work table, while protecting the router table surface. With the stand on casters, it’s especially useful to move the table around to gain easy and quick access to whichever side of my project I need. Rather than mount the brackets to the underside of my router table surface, I drilled a couple holes in the back of the stand itself and mounted it that way.

A sturdy worktop
I havent had a chance to use the table a lot however, it is a very good design, with enough weight to keep it in place.

Great for protecting my table. I did have to extend two slots about 1/2" to match my fence slots. But hey, it's a router table, so easy to extend them.
Added 1/2" to slot

It seems my router table is too handy a place to set thing temporarily. So this is perfect for protecting the top and gives an extra assembly area.

I'm bumping into things my shop's so small. Any extra workspace is a blessing so this will work beautifully!
Mikaol Daley on Dec 14, 2018
I chose this because it looks like a great layout worktop. Plus with a small shop I’m very limited on space. So being removable this caught my eye.

Daniel K on Jan 12, 2020
I don't understand about the miter slots....is there a raised strip on the bottom that fits into your table's miter slot to hold the board in position? If there is, is this strip fixed or easily moved? Really should include a picture of the bottom of the board. Thanks in advance for answers!
jniphone on Sep 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you look at the picture of the top you will see two holes which are for the screws that go with the miter slot bars that are under the table top. You tighten the screws to lock it in place. It is drilled for Rockler router table tops and may fit others without needing to drill new holes to match other brands.
Where do you mount the two hooks? On the table or steel frame?
Jason H on Mar 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The hooks mount on the steel frame
Will this work with the complete basic router table kit that was sold for a limited time, including being able to attach the hanger hooks to store the top and/or fence?
Erin M on Dec 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not sure what table you're referring to. I bought the removable worktop to go with this: Item #: 57301 It was a great addition to my small shop.
one of my hangers is squared and one has a slanted end. is this normal?
Laurab on Sep 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: both the hangers on my unit are at 90 degrees with just a little turn-up at the end to prevent the top from sliding off.
