I have the Trend PRT - Is that something you are considering?

It's good, but not worth the money unless you especially need something lightweight and portable.

If weight/portability is not an issue, then Record make a cast iron table which looks like a tank.

Kent mostly and France the rest
They are all much of a muchness in reality, but think about your future needs, I use my table a lot and it was not very soon after getting it that I realised I needed to put a router lift in, I was fed up with constantly bending down to adjust and then lock the router in place, the trend has a facility to adjust the depth above the table, but when using big dia bits (panel raising) the vibration means a bit lock is essential to prevent the height from changing during use, this means getting under the table to lock the router depth off, the Triton also has an above table lift, but is even worse for convenience where the automatic bit lock on lifting the router has to be manually disengaged, another trip under the table, I have the UJK table and router lift and am very happy with it.: https://www.axminster.co.uk/ujk-technol ... top-719240 link to lift: https://www.axminster.co.uk/ujk-technol ... tor-502701 does all I want of it, although its expensive, I would look at the product from Woodworkers Workshop as they have a variety of different router tables on offer: https://woodworkersworkshop.co.uk/ . and service and back up to rival Axminster with a personal touch.
