We have done some work bench reviews in the past such as the Keter Portable Workbench. To our surprise, the portable workbench was great. In fact I am still using it without an issues. Well now they have another one out, well Husky does. Keter makes the table for Husky, which is good to know. I now know Keter and trust the brand. So with this table, knowing that Keter makes it for Husky, I am equally as impressed. So what is so special about this bench, well a lot.
First the bench is only $70, not bad for a sturdy and portable bench. Second this thing can hold a heck of a lot of weight, 1,500 lbs to be more precise. Third, this bench folds away easy. Not as easy as the other work bench we covered, but easy enough to make it portable and useful. In fact everything stows away easy and neat. Another useful benefit is metal rails on the top of the bench to allow for clamping. If that is still not enough, you have metal brackets that allow the user to put 2×4’s on the sides, so really you can build the table bigger, how cool is that? But wait that isn’t all. In fact you can use this for a router table, yes a router table. You can mount most routers on the bottom and now you have a portable router table, not bad and for a price of $70, how can you beat it?
This is pretty cool, a portable workbench. I also didn’t know Keter is making stuff for Husky. I like it a lot. Laters TIA
Just bought it for work. I am a hydro mechanic. Works good portable and light weight and compact
I just bought this but neither of my Craftsman routers will attach to the router insert—nothing lines up.
Did you remove your router plate. On know on my router, i detatched my plastic router plate and it worked in my router table
Also found my Craftsman router screw holes did not line up with any on the table insert. Detaching the plastic router plate did not help. The threaded holes are still in the same place.
My stupid Craftsman Router does not line up either. I’m hoping the router insert plate is standard size or maybe I’ll fab one. Still a great Table.
my Ryobi didn’t line up either – had to have someone make me a metal plate so I could drill holes for my router in the plate and that worked. Does anyone know of some clamps that will work in the tracks? The user manual says “standard” clamps should work, but I can’t find any that do.
My Bosch 2.25 router also does not fit. As for the clamps, 2″ bar clamps work you just need to pull the rubber grips off so they will slide into the track. I think I will just drill some new holes in the plate to make my router fit.
Can you purchase a saw plate for this table and convert it into a table saw? Does Keter or Husky sell/manufacture such a part?
My Dewalt router does not mount to Husky holes, what bit can I use to drill new holes in
I read where so many say their router does not matchup to ousting holes in Husky table, makes curious which routers Do match up?

will witch router works ?
I have a porter cable router. Doesn’t fit. I may make my own insert.
I’ve only seen one person saying they have a router that fits, and that was a Dewalt. I have not found that any of my routers fit with any of the bases, very disappointing as the whole reason I bought this table 3 years ago was for the ability to use it as a router table
I have a Porter Cable, not sure the model number, but that is what I use on it.
