Question Removing plunge depth rod From Millwaukee 3.5 HP 5625

I want to mount the Milwaukee 5625-20 into the Incra Master Lift. Iím having a difficult time trying to figure out how to remove the depth adjustment rod from the motor.

Does anyone know how to remove the depth adjustment rod from the motor on the 5625 so it can be mounted into the Incra Master Lift?

There is a pan head screw under the white plug on top of the black knob. Lever out the plug, remove the screw and knob.

It doesnít look like the rod comes out at all. It appears to fit in the Incra Lift without removing the depth adjustment rod for the base. It should work without removing it

Itís odd Milwaukee didnít make a way to remove the depth adjustment rod. In looks like the folks at Jessem were one step ahead in their design of the Incra Master Lift.

Here's a link to ereplacement parts for your router. You can click on the "download diagram" at the top of the page for a better diagram. From the parts list, select part no. 40 (depth shaft assembly) and it will take you to the page for that part. At the bottom of the page there was a question asked about the removal of the depth adjustment shaft and an answer given. If you review that answer, in conjunction with parts diagram you should be good to go.

Essentially, as swarfmaker said, start by removing the screw at the top of the adjustment knob.

Thanks Chiarelli.

So far I appear to have it mounted. into the Incra Lift without removing the depth rod. The depth rod is not interfering with the lift.

The more annoying part was adjusting the mounting bracket for the Jessem made Incra Lift 2. The brackets had to be modified with two different positions to fit the 5625 motor. The D3 position on the chart for the brackets in the Jessem Manual did not allow the 5625 to sit in HD lift. I had to adjust so the Allen key bolts were set to two different positions on each side to squeeze the 5625 motor into the Incra lift.

I couldnít get the 5625 into the lift following the directions exactly.
