Tool News - Rockler Steel Router Table Cabinet


Galvanized Steel Cabinet Provides Complete Tool Storage and Integrated Dust Collection

MEDINA, MN (March 30, 2011) - Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced a Router Table Cabinet made of galvanized steel with an integrated dust collection system. The steel cabinet, which pushes role boundaries between a traditional router and a shaper, was designed by Rockler woodworkers to serve as the ultimate router workstation, providing room for storage, internal dust collection, and options for adding convenient shelves and drawers. The result is an all-in-one router station that conveniently stores router bits, wrenches, jigs, and more. The top of the Steel Router Cabinet has pre-drilled mounting holes compatible with all Rockler router tables, as well as many brand name tables.

Other unique features of the all-steel Rockler Router Cabinet include:

• Convenient internal dust bucket provides a cleaner work surface by creating a vacuum below the table to significantly reduce the amount of dust and wood chips generated by routing operations

• A recessed 4" dust port in the back of the cabinet minimizes the clearance needed when connecting to a dust collection system

• Heavy-duty construction gives the cabinet the weight and stability of a stationary shaper, minimizing vibration and increasing the chances of getting consistent cutting results. "Our goal was to build something unlike any other router cabinet on the market", says Dan Wenning, product development specialist with Rockler. "We surpassed our goal. Nobody else offers a cabinet built entirely out of galvanized steel that comes with an internal dust collection system. Router enthusiasts looking for storage, order, and convenience will come to view this cabinet as a cornerstone of their shop."

An ideal match with the Benchdog Cast Iron Router Table Top (SKU: 25574, sold separately). Drawers or shelves may be added with the purchase of Drawer Accessory Kits, (sold separately). Complementing its many conveniences, the cabinet is also pre-tapped for adding an optional Router Safety Switch (SKU: 42703, sold separately).

The Steel Router Cabinet (SKU: 41427) retails for $429.99 and will be available at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler's independent resellers,, or in the Rockler catalog. For store locations or a free catalog, please visit or call 1-877-ROCKLER.
