    Router table lifts/tables

    Hey All,

    I will be purchasing a router lift/table soon. I built my first router table 20+ years ago and have an early jointtech fence. The reviews that I have read give the Jessem the nod. But a $1000+ for table, fence and router is pretty steep. What are your thoughts?

    Thanks
    Jack

    Sounds like you're probably looking for something a little more high-end, but I've been real happy with the Router Raizer on my M12V. Lot of bang for the buck, and it's done exactly what I need it to do. My table is just a Rockler tablesaw extension version with the Woodpeckers phenolic plate. Here again, it's worked out real well for me...no complaints.

    Ditto what Vaughn said, the router Raizer and a Hitachi M12V and you are in business

    Or a Milwaukee 5625 or 5616 bolted to a plate or tabletop. No lift required. Above the table adjustment and above the tabletop bit changes with offset wrenches.
