Default Makita 3612BR for router table

I am slowly building a wood shop. A year ago I bought an Incra jig as a stand alone item. Have used it on the table saw.

Now I want a router table and lift, and saw that Incra makes these and it goes perfectly with the jig I have. The question I am having trouble finding an answer to is does the Makita 3612BR disassemble from its frame so it can fit the lift?

Thanks

I'm not sure exactly what you're referring to, but I modified my Makita 3612BR with a Router Raizer kit for mounting in my table. That required partial disassembly of the router (removing the springs inside the post and installing some new and replacment parts.

A plunge router has its own lift. As Lex said you can attach a Router Raizer to it the adjustment screw. Or you can do like BJ3 did and attach a cordless screwdriver to the screw but the motor doesn't come out of the base to use in a lift.

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.

Thanks guys for the info. I called tech support at Incremental Tools and learned that I can attach the router to the plate made for the Makita 3612C, but like you both say, it cannot attach to a lift.

If you want a lift, this is what you need. I installed it on my Makita 3612BR, and it works both on the table and also off the table when using the router handheld. It is the Router Raizer model RZ100. I bought mine on Amazon for eighty-something dollars. It took me a couple of hours to install it, because I was going very carefully. The installation can be reversed if you keep the original parts and ever want to restore the unit to its original configuration (but after using it, I don't know why anyone would want to.)
