A router table is a stationary woodworking machine with a vertically oriented spindle of a woodworking router protruding from the machine table and capable of spinning at speeds ranging from 3000 to 24,000 rpm. In the spindle chuck, cutter heads (router bits) can be mounted. The cutters mould a profile into the workpiece as it is fed into the machine. In most cases, the machine has a vertical fence against which the workpiece is guided to control the horizontal depth of cut. Router tables are used to increase the versatility of a hand-held router because each method of use is specifically suited to a specific application, for example, very large workpieces would be too large to support on a router table and must be routed with a hand-held machine, very small workpieces would not support a hand-held router and must be routed on a router table with the aid of pusht ool accessories, and so on.
