I bought the Musclechuck some years ago and have used it almost exclusively since then in my router table (which has a AUKTools motor in it, because PC type units with a motor only are *very* hard to come by here in Europe). I have to say that I am very satisfied with it. No vibration, no slipping, it just works. I do have a set of different sized collets for it, but have to admit that I did not try the largest ones yet. There is some trepidation doing that. Somehow I feel it is better to stick with a traditional chuck for 10 and 12 mm shanks. However, for 6 mm, 1/4", and 8 mm shanks it is a wonderful accessory. Maybe I should just try the larger ones sometime shortly...  [embarassed]

All in all I really like this Musclechuck.

First use of the table a few days ago. It was my very first experience with a router table. I did some round over on some shelves  [eek] wow couldn't be easier then that. It's a simple task I know  [embarassed]

Very happy with the package so far.

I have a few jigs to build for now  [wink]

then, there is storage to build under the router table!  I used to have a Jointech fence.  JoinTech is now out of business unfortunately.  The guy that owned the company had plans for a cabinet I built many years ago.  It had really nice drawers for bits.  I ended up making a few changes and no longer have that cabinet.  My new router table has a few features I want, but the stand made out of 2x4s and plywood does not have drawers.  Some day.

Yes, storage under the table is a must no doubt. I plan to make systainer inserts that will also slide like a drawer under the table. Here my base design in Easel

I will be using those bit holders from L.V.

They are taper and the bits are easy to remove. I have 50 of each to start with  [big grin]

Been using the Jessem Router Table for a month now, love it. I am thinking of adding a Wixey Digital Readout. Any one have experience with it?

I can get the original readout for about 100$ and the one from jessem is 162$ but come with a plate specifically made to fit on the Jessem strand. I was wondering if this is the only difference from the original.

The excell package make raising/lowering the router bit so easy  [big grin] No tool to worry about.
The stand, feet & casters make the table extremely rigid, stable and easy to move.

Are you talking about one that attaches directly to the lift mechanism, or a free standing gauge like the Wixey WR200?

The one attached to the router.

Jessem Wixey version

Original Wixey
317405-0

Another concern I have is about the ability to remove the fence from the back  [eek]
