The ProFence is one of the best router table fences out there. When you use your table saw, the fence dismounts quickly so you can hang it on the j-hooks while you work.

Dual fence slot configuration lets you to move the fence so you can work from either side of the table. This is very convenient for smaller spaces.
The sub-fences, which help with support and alignment, easily adjust without the use of any tools, so you can work much faster while still getting very precise cuts and measurements.
T-slot for featherboards and accessories

Can be hard to assemble
The heavy-cast iron makes this table difficult to assemble if you aren’t experienced. Have someone come over to help you. On the other hand, that same cast-iron is what makes the table so sturdy, so once it’s assembled, the iron only offers benefits.
Doesn’t include router plate
The other downside to the 40-102 is that it doesn’t come with a router plate. You have to buy the ProPlate separately, and even some other Bench Dog-brand plates won’t fit, so finding the right one can be a bother.
