MOUNTING
THE ROUTER TABLE TO A
WORK SURFACE
OR WORKBENCH
I_II_.WARNING,
The router table
must always be FIRMLY and SECURELY
mounted to a work surface before use.
Failure to do so could cause the muter
table to tip over or slide, resulting in
property damage and/or serious
personal injury.
TOOLS REQUIRED
(not included)
• Phillips screwdriver
• Small sized adjustable wrench
• Electric or hand drill with drill bits
(depending on mounting method used)
• Fasteners (not included):
• 4 #10-18 x 13/4 " (rain. length)
pan-head wood screws and 4
washers (for solid wood work
surfaces or workbenches), or
• 4 3/16" pan head machine screws,
8 washers, and hex nuts.
MOUNTING
DIRECTLY TO
A WORKBENCH

SURFACE (Fig. 10)
1. Set the router table on a workbench or
other stable and sturdy surface, with
the FRONT (switch side) of the router
table facing toward you.
2. While holding the router table in the
desired position, mark the location
of the four mounting holes (two on
each leg).
3. Remove the router table from the
workbench and set it aside.
4. Drill a 1/8" pilot hole (for wood screws)
or an appropriately sized hole (for
machine screws) at the marked
locations.
5. Place the router table on the
workbench and align the mounting
holes in the router table legs with the
holes drilled in the work bench.
6. Secure the router table in place
using wood screws and washers (not
