New Bosch RA1171 Benchtop Router Table - A True Woodworkers Table
Laminated Cabinet Functionality, Expanded and Precise Support, Dual Outlet Switch and More...
Mt. Prospect, Ill. (March 30, 2006) - Bosch Power Tools and Accessories announced the release of the RA1171 Benchtop Router Table. The cabinet-style functionality, expanded and precise material support and a dual outlet switch make this the perfect solution for woodworkers in search of a quality benchtop router table for the shop.
Adjusting the fence and bit height on the RA1171 Router Table for precise cuts is easy. Users simply position the tall aluminum 4-7/8 by 25-1/8-inch fence, with adjustable MDF face plates into place. For convenient bit height adjustment capability, Bosch recommends using a router and base with a through-the-table adjustment feature, such as the Bosch 1617-series routers and the Bosch RA1165 Router Table Base (sold separately). Additionally, a dual outlet switch and a 6-foot cord eliminate the need to reach under the table after initial set up. A lock prevents unauthorized use. And the cabinet style improves dust control with ports on both the fence and in the cabinet.
A 25 by 15-1/2-inch smooth laminated top offers an expanded smooth work surface for precision woodworking projects. Two adjustable featherboards quickly mount on the fence or table to guide work as the user wishes. A starter pin and guard offer support for routing curved material. Furthermore, the table includes a flat and precise aluminum router mounting plate, which users will find conveniently pre-drilled for a wide variety of Bosch and many more competitive routers. A blank Bosch mounting plate (RA1186) may be purchased separately and drilled to fit most other routers.
The new Bosch RA1171 Benchtop Router Table comes complete with 2 adjustable featherboards, 3 mounting plate insert rings, 1 adjustable clear guard, 1 starter pin and guard, 2 outfeed fence shims (1/16-inch thick) and the appropriate router mounting hardware.
