I am very pleased that you are very pleased with the Router Raizer. While they do not sell directly and do not advertise, they have wonderful, personal support. I bought one from MLCS and it arrived with the long rod not sliding perfectly smoothly. I called the office in Des Moines, Iowa with questions that I cannot remember, mentioned the rod problem and they solved the problem very well; they sent me a whole new unit! All this at a time when central Iowa was severely flooded. (They are on a hill so not affected by the flooding).
The Router Raizer seemed to me to be the best solution for my particular issues. The double to pentuple prices for power lifts with digital readouts that do not allow switching router base plates seemed vastly overpriced with bells and whistles that served no purpose beyond relieving me of the terrible burden of the weight of my wallet (which would make it float away). To switch base plates with the Router Raizer one need only have the alternate plates appropriately drilled, unscrew the base plate, remove it, then screw on the other base plate and be sure it is properly aligned.

Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children."
