I just went through this exercise. I have three Kreg tables and I'm building a fourth. After lots of research and touchy-feely, I ended up with the Jessem Mast R Lift II.
Couple of things to keep in mind:
The Bench Dog plates won't fit the Kreg's table cutout. They are a different size.
Kreg has a lift (PRL-V2 made by Woodpeckers) that fits and accommodates Kreg's mounting system (the holes line up).
Jessem's plates (careful: they make a smaller Bench Dog version) drop into the Kreg table perfectly but the two corner mounting holes don't line up with Kreg's under table mounting system. Not a deal breaker as the combination of the lift and the PC 7518's weight is substantial enough it isn't going anywhere. The Kreg's leveling system still works with the Jessem. I just ran a bunch stile & rails through no sweat.
I spent a fair amount of time with the WP PRL-V2 and didn't care for it. The quick lift action was spotty at best. Sometimes it would engage, sometimes you had wiggle around and try and find the release point. The thumbwheel to me was tedious. Too much thumbing to get adjusted which also was dependent on where you were in the 3/4” travel limit. You would have to get the quick lift wrench out again to make an adjustment if you were topped out up or down. It was also definitely harder going up with the thumbwheel… even with the brake all the way loosened. Which by the way stuck up past the surface of the table even only slightly loosened. In order to get the set screw below the surface the brake was full on. The unit was beefy enough and well machined… just didn’t execute as well. Others love it.
I would look at the Sidewinder version of this lift. I believe your not limited to 3/4" travel wherever you stop with the quicklift and the crank is just easier than the thumbwheel. Probably would have been my choice, but I stopped looking when I came across the Jessem Mast R lift II. It is extremely substantial. Works with the PC 7518 (or most routers) right out of the box. The cranking & locking action is silky smooth. It only takes a few moments to crank all the way up or down.
So for me... it came down to the Jessem Mast R Lift II or the Woodpeckers Sidewinder. I think you can't go wrong with either one. I might give the Sidewinder a try later on one of my Kreg tables. The Mast R Lift II is going in the new built table.
Good luck with your search. :-)
