Original Press Release:
New Bosch RA1181 Benchtop Router Table Tough and Simple Enough
To Move From Jobsite to Jobsite With Ease Mt. Prospect, Ill. (June 8 2006) - Easy set-up, durable long-lasting features and expanded material support make the new Bosch RA1181 Benchtop Router Table, from Bosch Power Tools and Accessories, the first choice for finish carpenters, remodelers and woodworkers. After years of success with the Bosch RA1180 benchtop router table, significant improvements give this next generation router table a finely formed edge over the competition. The table features a large 27 by 18-inch die-cast aluminum top resistant to corrosion and distortion from the elements. A rigid aluminum router mounting plate accompanies the table for flat and precise accuracy, guaranteed. Pre-drilled, the plate can accommodate more than a dozen industry routers, while a blank mounting plate can be purchased separately and drilled to fit. Precise cuts are simplified using the table's easy to position 4-7/8-inch tall by 25-1/8-inch wide aluminum fence with adjustable MDF face plates. Outfeeds can be offset for jointing applications and the fence fits a standard 2-1/2-inch vacuum hose for a clean work environment. Two adjustable featherboards mount directly on the fence or table to safely guide work. 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). A dual outlet switch with 6-foot power cord provides easy on/off router access without having to reach under the table. Furthermore, through-table height adjustments are possible for fast, precise settings with each application. A lock capability also prevents unauthorized use. The new Bosch RA1181 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.
