    The Dog is in the house!

    I ordered some toyls last Saturday night. A new PC 7518 3¼ hp router, a Bench Dog 40-016 ProLift and the Bench Dog 40-031 ProMax cast iron extension table to mount it all to my Unisaw. I received the 7518 & extension wing on Wednesday and the Pro-Lift Yesterday, - I love Amazon.
    I started putting it together last night. I am really impressed with Benchdog’s attention to fit & finish, this stuff is gorgeous.
    I did have a problem getting the Pro-Lift perfectly flush with the wing. I must’ve messed with it for 3 hours trying to get it adjusted right and I would always have one corner too high by 5 or 6 thousandths. To attached the Pro-Lift, Benchdog uses two screws in opposing corners (pic 1). It was always one of the other corners that would be high. So with my patience running thin, I threw the Pro-Lift up on my mill and punched in two more holes (pic 2). With screws now in each corner I was able to get it dead-nuts level in a few minutes.

    It would be nice to have a Norm type router table but I think this setup is going to be a nice addition to my shop without taking up anymore precious real-estate.

    What? Ya couldn't just mill up your own lift from Sandia Lab scraps and features that nobody else has? Must be busy with other stuff. I guess this will have to do until you can get your own done.

    Doug, it's kind of like Jiffy-Lube, I used to change my own oil. Now, I'd rather pay someone else to do it...
