Make Router Table Work Easy - Use A Router Lift
For the serious router table user, the benefits of using a router lift are huge. With a 3-1/2 HP router mounted in one of these lifts, you’ve got a routing system that can’t be beat for convenience, power and accuracy. With a router lift, all your height adjustments can be made from the top of the table instead of underneath and bit changes no longer require removing the router from the table. Watch the video to see how big a benefit that is.
Watching the video reminds you just how much of a chore it is to mount your router to your router table’s mounting plate instead of using a router lift. The router lift he’s using is the original JessEm Mast-R-Lift but that’s now been improved and updated with the JessEm Mast-R-Lift II.
JessEm invented the router lift in 1999 and they are still the market leader, continually coming up with new advances in router table technology like the JessEm Mast-R-Lift Excel II Router Table Top With Integral Router Lift which takes it to a new level of accuracy and control.
The router is the Milwaukee 5625-20. It’s a monster 3-1/2 Max HP Fixed-Base Production Router for when you need to do some serious routing.
