Default Router Raizer; Yeh or nay

If you have used the Router Raizer with your plunge router were you satisfied with it and would you recommend it? I am building an RT and am considering using the Router Raizer rather than the more expensive router lifts.

Thanks

I use it on my Oak Park table with a Hitachi M12V. I LOVE it! Highly recommended!

Thanks for the positive feedback. I have ordered the RR from Infinity Tools but they seem a little slow on filling the order. It should be a good addition to my old PC 7529 in the shop made table that I am building.

Just a note, read the installation instructions COMPLETELY before you start installing it. There are some helpful tips that you will miss if you do it step by step. And you must follow the instructions exactly, even if they sound weird, it will all make sense in the end. Don't ask how I know this....

+1 on CanuckGal.
I installed one on a tabled Festool OF2000 with some help over the phone from the designer, as there are no instructions for that router. Works fine, but I'm still in the market for a router lift once I find a company who makes a good 220v motor that fits one. (not a plunge lift)

That is the same problem I had with the 1400. No lift support from third party vendors. I have run close to 1000 board feet of wood in the last few months through a Milwaukee set up in PRL V2 and find the power more than adequate.

What routers are readily available in your area?


Just remember what my father always said, " Half the people in this world are below average!", and everything in life will make a hellova lot more sense.

Just about all the major names with the exception of Porter Cable. The problem is that many of the U.S. based(or formerly U.S. based- Now ?) companies offer only a limited number of models to the Euro market. Take Milwaukee for example, 1 router- a model that is only 1010 watts- thats it.
Only this year have I been able to find a fixed base router over here, the Bosch EVS kit and the Makita equiv.
My plan is to ship over a 110v Milwaukee motor and use it with a voltage reduction transformer in a PRL V2 as you do.
I also have the OF1400 but it would be underpowered for my under table purposes and most of the time it is connected to a Leigh tenoning jig as I do a lot of M/Ts.
