02 Jul A Router Table Kit from Skil
The kit from Skil (item RT1323-00) has actually been available for a few months and it includes a router table and a 10 Amp fixed base router. The router can be used in the table or independently, and it accepts both 1/2″ and 1/4″ shank bits. There’s a 1-3/4 HP motor, a live tool safety indicator, three LED lights, soft start, six speed settings, quick-set screws for fixing the edge guide, and a built-in vacuum port. A quick and easy router clamp attaches the router to the underside of the table, and there’s an above-table router lift to adjust the height of the bits without reaching underneath. The router table has an integrated router bit storage area, an aluminum miter gauge slot, a starter pin, two feather-boards, and a large aluminum fence. The fence measures 24” wide and is complete with two adjustable MDF face plates and a guard. The router has a die-cast motor housing and shaped handles for superior grip and control. It spins in a range from 10,000 to 25,000 RPM.
