Talking about lifts I made one for my drill press,,, it's 110 volt motor with a small gear box ,and a control box up front....
I got lazy one day and I didn't want to crank it up and down by hand any more so I made one to do it for me..
Harry I thought you would get a kick out of looking at this one

See the link showing how I made a version of Niki's lifter. http://www.routerforums.com/44165-post8.html
