Default Router Raizer

I got and installed the Router Raizer on my Hitachi M12V today in the Oak Park table. Installation went reasonably well. If you install one of these, be sure to read through ALL the instructions before you do the install, there are lots of "tips" that will make it go a LOT smoother. Obviously I didn't do that.
But it's in and works GREAT!! I can tell I am going to really enjoy it. Thanks to everyone who helped with my questions about it.

I ordered it from All-In-One Wood Tools in Toronto just before New Years. Good price, excellent customer service and fast shipping. You can't order online, only by fax or phone, but they made it totally painless. They also answered my email inquiries within 24 hours.

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.
