Default Lift for a Freud FT 3000

or maybe it's the 2000. It is the monster sized plunge router.
I have a Raizer that is all messed up and so is the plate - a hand me down that was abused so what I'd like to do is start fresh.

Anyone have any opinions of what is out there that doesn't require a second mortgage to buy.
Thanks

No need for a lift for the FT3000. It raises and lowers with a hex wrench through the table top. Might want to speed up the process with a hex bit mounted in a cordless drill, though. Incra makes a plate for the FT3000 and Woodcraft sells it.

me bad - it's not the 300 but the 2200. That's why I hesitated...in sentence. Sorry

Default Do NOT use a drill driver to raise/lower this router!

I tried using a drill driver to raise and lower this router. The internal gearing and mechanism is made of plastic. All it took was one incident with driver turning in the wrong direction while the mechanism was already at the end of range. Stripped.

I used a drill driver to raise and lower mine for awhile. Luckily I never messed mine up but it made me sufficiently nervous to switch over to one of these:
3/8" Drive Speeder Handle

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.
