I just bought a Triton TRA001, which has a lift built in and is 3.5 hp. I tried a Rockler lift but it constantly slipped on height adjustment. I'd give careful consideration to the Triton before buying anything else. From what I read here and having tried out the Triton, I would have bought it first. If you don't have a table yet, I'd get the one they recommend or at least their plate. I got the Rockler plate and had to drill my own hole for the lift crank, not hard to do. I used the paper template available on this site, but forgot to flip it over, then just bolted the router to the plate and found a small cut away on the edge. Since the hole has to be half an inch, I just marked a bit more than a quarter inch away with a punch the used a drill press to cut the hole. A rat tail file finished it up. Its the easiest way I could figure out to put the hole where it belongs. Anyway, that's my suggestion. Buying the lift and a router cost more that the Triton, and I'm going to wind up tossing the Rockler lift. Expensive lesson.
