    router lifts

    I want to put my PC 7518 in a lift without without breaking the bank. Recommendations from actual users, please.

    I have a Jessem Router Lift. No complaints, raises and lowers very smoothly

    I have a Jessem lift that came with my Jet table saw several years ago. It's not as fancy as some, but it works well and hold its position with no problem.

    Check out this months Shopnotes Carol. It features a shop built lift that looks pretty good. I have the Incra lift, good but pricey.

    I've got a Router Raizer on my M12V. It's by no means as fancy as the others, but it has done everything I've needed it to do and it fits the "without breaking the bank" criteria very nicely.

    I've got the same. Very low tech, low key, but works, and was cheap...

    That's what I've got, too. It works quite well, and is certainly one of the cheapest (commercial) ways to go. I've kinda been lusting after that Woodpeckers lift, though.

    Carol, your 7518 isn't a plunge router, though, is it? If it's not, then of course you need one of those expensive lifts!

    I've definitely got router lift envy too. I just can't justify it in my mind since I've devoted my dewalt router with it to exclusive router table work.

    It aint broke, so I guess I don't need to go fixing things...
