I had the 1617 and a Rockler lift, but sold the lift to Herb a while ago. I replaced it with a Triton TRA001, which is a BIG 3.14 horse router that works incredibly well in the table. I mostly use the router in the table. Safer almost always than hand held. The cost is not far from the same as a high end router lift, and you get a beefy router to boot. I still have the two 1617s, but find myself reaching for a small, hand held Bosch Colt for a lot of projects. Nothing wrong with the Bosch machines, mind you, but Harry Sinclair, an old time member, turned me on to the Triton.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
