Chris Curl i probably sound like a broken record to others on this forum, but lifts are generally very expensive, and it is easy to build your own for a few dollars.

it is just another option should you have a hard time finding a lift that fits both your router and budget.

davide273 Hi Chris,
On looking further into current models of DeWalt routers I find no mention of the 610. Perhaps this is now a dinosaur! Thanks for your interest. David

davide273 Hi Tom,
I hadn't thought of the Incra lift but there seem to be several positive posts about it. I will look at it more closely. Thanks for your input.

davide273 Hi James,
I have a DeWalt 610. So far I've used it only for free hand routing, but now that I want to improve my routing capabilities(via table) I'm willing to spend up to $400 to move into a higher gear.
Which of the modern routers have built-in lift capability?

I have a daughter in Canberra and I visit her every couple of years.
Sydney and Canberra are among my favourite cities. Was there only three months ago!

Thanks for your interest in my question.

davide273 Yes, a DeWalt 610.

3efingers David, I have my router table set up as an extension on table saw with the Incra ts/ls with a Porter Cable router 1617 and just added the Rockler router lift fx (waited till it went on sale) and it all works rather well, just sorry I waited so long to the get the router lift! Dont have to get down on my knees to pull the motor to change bits and all that mess.

jw2170 Hi david,

Welcome to the forum.

What make/model is your router, or if also buying a new router as well as the table and lift, what is you budget?

You can buy some new routers with lift capabilities already built in so no need for a lift.

Chris Curl do you have the router already?

router lifter and table

This is my second post. The electrons must have eaten my first one!

I am planning to buy a router table and lift. I would welcome any comments (such as is it necessay to buy both from the same manufacturer?)
