The stand is a perfect match for the Compass cast iron router table, a solid base for a VERY heavy table. Fit and finish is excellent. The setup is a bit of a slog though in that it calls to assemble and preinstall dozens of bolts, washers and nuts to attach the legs and aprons. The result is a very strong connection but it is, as I wrote, a tedious exercise. Instructions are fairly clear but the print font and accompanying illustrations are small and a little tough on my 68 yo eyes. All in all it took just over an hour to put together the majority of time spent threading the fasteners together. All in all, a great table though and should stand up well to usage.
