Does anyone have any experience with the Pinnacle Premium Router Quick-Lift that Woodcraft sells?

For 20 plus years, I have used wood table tops without a plate, height issues (lack of height, depth of cut). Polycarbonate plates, not bad, but no reducing rings, so you have to take care corners don't dip. and then alloy plates. All adjustments were from below with a home made height adjuster. Then I bought the Jessem router lift. There are not many products available in U.K. I put off making a table for both the Jessem and the Incra Ultimate for a while and then built 2 this year. The Jessem is great to use, setups are easily repeatable, it is safe and sturdy. A cranked spanner would be an advantage, but for bits up to 22mm dia I use a box spanner.

I haven't used the Pinnacle but have the Incra Mast-R-Lift (made by Jessem with Jessem's lift mechanism and Incra's large rare earth magnet "Magna-lock" reducing rings. With those large rings, the Jessem mechanism and a PC7518, the router raises far enough above the table to not only permit bit changes but the lower wrench lays flat on my router table, so no need for cranked neck on the wrench.

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

Came with the table. Package deal, set up to fit my table saw. Got a fence that can be offset in 100ths of an inch, profile inserts, vacuum ports, hold down fingers and bridged feather boards, plus the 3 hp PC router motor. All for less than my F250 cost.

Hey there Bigdog..

take a look at woodpeckers/Inca PRLv2. I've gone one of these and I got to tell ya, the thing is just great! The thumb wheel micro adjustment feature is very cool. The lift itself is solid, well build. I've got a milwaukee 5625 sitting in it and have yet to meet its match..Good luck with whatever you choose!!

I decided to get the Woodpeckers PRL V2. and I also purchased a Porter Cable 7518 to go with it. I can't wait to get it all working.
