|harrysin||I haven't seen this thread before, it was soon after I spent four weeks in hospital and was absent from the forum for quite a while. I'm sure that most members are familiar with my foot operated router lift but here it is again in case anyone missed it.|

|DesertRatTom||I'm VERY happy with my Triton in a Rockler table, using a Woodpecker mounting plate. Works beautifully. Have a Rockler fence that works well too. Has sawdust extraction just behind the bit. I had the Rockler mount for my 1617, but it kept slipping. I guess Herb tightened it up. The Rockler plate is a little smaller than standard, so I had to rout out the opening for the Woodpecker. I like the the thicker Woodpecker plate and the twist-lock changable inserts (I just got the insert kit with all sizes. Not sure I would benefit from an iron top.|

The fastest way turned out to be the Dremel.

Can you say more about using the cut-off wheels? I'm surprised you were able to cut a cast iron table with them, not surprised that YOU could do it but I wouldn't have attempted it myself...

Thanks for this Herb. How many cut-off wheels did it take to do this? |

The MLCS X-1 is identical to the Eagle American that I bought.

I also have a MLCS router table. I am very disappointed with the fence.
Do you have any ideas for changing the fence? You were creative with the lift so I thought I would ask. The sliding table was a good idea but I need a 3/4 channel. I don't think I researched enough before spending my hard earned money.
