Our Second Pick :
The Bosch RA1171 could be considered as an visual upgrade to the RA1181 as it comes in a cabinet style and a few gritty upgrades.
First of all, the RA1171 comes with a pretty tall aluminium fence measuring exactly 4.875 (height) x 25.125 (width) inches.
On the contrary to what a few users experienced, we found the assembly process to be pretty straightforward and referring to a few youtube videos will definitely help you get it done faster.
This table comes with 2 dust-collection ports and a Dual Outlet Switch with 6-foot power cord.
The rest of the configuration is almost exactly the same as the RA1181 and apart from having a cabinet style and a few small upgrades like a larger aluminium fence and double dust collection ports, there isn’t much left to discuss about this table.
In conclusion, I found this table well worth the price and there aren’t a lot of tables that can compete with the kind of precision and working experience it has to offer.
