2M4A0619Although introduced at the International Woodworking Fair in Atlanta in 2012, there has been relatively few published articles or blog posts written about the Excalibur Deluxe Router Table Kit from General International since its release. I, however, think this kit is well worth a close look. Why? It has many of the features I feel make a better router table setup.

The number one feature is the availability of a cast iron top. To my mind, this is perfect. It’s the choice on other important machines in the shop, such as the table saw top and band saw table, and it’s what is used for jointer and planer beds. And if you’ve had an MDF router table top for more than a few years, check the table flatness. Under LiftBe careful because you may not be happy about what you find.

A second powerful feature for me is the router lift. By itself, a lift is the heart of your router table setup.
