Templating curved pieces using bearing guided cutters and the Lead-On Starter Pin

Consistent and accurate batch cutting

Safe and controlled working with thinner material


Router Table Fence

The fence provides substantial horizontal support to the stock when transitioning past the cutter. It should be strong, perfectly aligned to 90º and offer comprehensive, easy to make adjustments.


Adjustable Melamine Facings with durable, smooth facings for easy and safe stock feeding. 

Full adjustability allows the facings to be as close to the cutter as possible to support stock past the cutter and maximise safety.

Each facing tightens with two locking knobs for a secure fit.


68mm Extra-Deep Adjustable Fence offers excellent support for a range of material thicknesses. The fence attaches to twin keyhole slots for quick and easy installation and removals.

Twin reference scales allow easy repeat backset positioning for fast setup and increased productivity.

Tall Fence Locking Knobs with user-friendly, oversized grips, that sit above the fence for easy operation and prevention of knuckle injuries.

57mm Dust Extraction Port provides high volume extraction to optimise safety, cut quality and accuracy.

Precision Aluminium Extrusion with a wide base, ensures perfect squareness of the fence facings to the table for accurate routing.

Jointing and Planing facility for straightening and planing stock.


On-board storage positions  

The Planing Rods store on-board the fence for easy access.

Router Raiser Storage keeps the adjuster readily to hand on the infeed side of the table.

Lead-On Starter Pin Storage for safe keeping.


Router Table Construction

The CRT has a lightweight and rigid framework for easy handling and stable working with non-slip feet to keep the table securely in position during use or transportation. The Table is also compact and easily transportable from job to job, making it ideal for on-site and workshop applications including moulding and jointing.


Steel Frame Construction is designed for stability, durability, portability & easy router access.

Cable Cleats keeps the power cable secure, safe and tidy.

Push Stick Storage keeps it close to hand when not in use.

T-Slot Accessory Track for secure & flexible positioning of feather boards & guards.

Top Tape Scale with metric & imperial graduations for stopped cuts and repeat settings.

Large Phenolic Table provides an ultra-durable, stable and flat surface for friction-free stock feeding.


Router Plate

The Router Plate fixes to the base of the router and holds it firmly in the correct position on the table. The plate should be strong, easy to adjust, minimise height loss and allow smooth passing of stock past the cutter. The Router Plate comes with 7 insert rings including a combination ring; the combination of guide bush and cutter gives infinitely variable offset variations. 


Trend Base Configuration (TBC) features 3 screw holes for easy, direct mounting of Trend and other compatible routers.

A standardised fixing pattern of holes that allow routers to be attached to a range of compatible tables, jigs and accessories.

Learn more about Trend Base Configuration here.


Insert Rings to support stock transition past the cutter and maximise safety.

The Combination Ring provides an easy way to add Guide Bush functionality to the router table. 

Perfect for “copy following” applications with a US style guide bush.


Lead-On Starter Pin Position for templating and curved work; learn more here.

Levelling Screws around the perimeter of the plate to perfectly adjust the infeed and outfeed and prevent stock from snagging.

6.35mm Anodised Aluminium Plate prevents deflection and sagging when heavy routers are fitted.

Direction Arrow indicates the correct path for the stock to be fed safely past the cutter.


Router Raiser Aperture allows the cutter height to be easily and safely adjusted from above the table for perfect accuracy, alignment and finish.

Height Adjuster not included with CRT (supplied with Trend T11 & T14 routers).


Router Table Accessories

The CraftPro Router Table is supplied with an assortment of useful router table accessories, including a Mitre Fence, NVR Power Switch, Feather Boards, Cutter Guard, Lead-on Pin & Pushstick, see the full list here.

Vertical and horizontal feather boards are supplied and apply pressure to keep the work tight against the fence and table to prevent kickback and reduce chatter. The supplied Mitre fence is also Spelch board compatible, which pushes up against the trailing edge of the stock to give the cleanest possible cut. The NVR Power Safety Switch allows safe operation from the table edge across a wide range of routers and also prevents the router from automatically restarting after a power cut or interruption to further maximise safety.


Feather Boards apply even vertical and horizontal pressure to the stock as it passes the cutter.

They can be used separately or as a pair and allow up to 60mm deep and 130mm wide material to be routed with them in place.


Tall, twist locking handle for easy and safe control on the Mitre Fence with adjustable and indexed positions to create perfect angled cuts.

 +/- 30º range with indented positions at 90º, 75º, 60º, 45º and 30º for accurate repeat cuts.

For jointing and moulding on end grain or angled work. Also for tenon work with straight cutters to achieve consistent and accurate results.

 

Spelch block compatible (a small piece of sacrificial stock that can be attached to the fence to prevent cutter breakout)


The Lead-On Starter Pin allows users to safely introduce larger or curved material onto a bearing guided cutter.

Attempting this without a Lead-On Starter Pin is dangerous as the material is likely to kick back and cause injury. The pin supports the workpiece to allow the material template to engage the cutter bearing safely.

The pin fits into a dedicated threaded position on the router plate and should only be used in combination with a bearing guided cutter and with the rear fence removed.


The front-mounted NVR Switch supplies AC power to the router via the socket* on the side, eliminating the need to access the router power switch. The router is now independently controlled by the NVR switch for safe operation.

Push Stick with an ergonomic, long reach handle to safely slide thinner stock past the cutter.

 

Transparent Cutter Guard allows users to see the stock progression while keeping fingers away from the cutter.
