Default Freud Plunge router lift

Does anyone know where I can procure a good lift for the Freud FT2000E, plunge router?

Woodpeckers made a really nice, chain driven one but discontinued making it last year.

Thanks!

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

Lifts are made for motors only and plunge routers aren't designed to be used motor only. The closet thing I know of is a Router Raizer.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
