Default Lift rec's for FreudFT2200?

Hi all - first off I been reading here on-off for a year and the info I have learned is fantastic. Thanks to all for posting.

Now unto my question - I finished building a table, somewhat of a cross between Norms and others whom I borrowed ideas from. Turned out nice actually so happy with it. I have an Incra Ultra that I will be using and a never used Freud FT2200, with a Router Raizer. I had a Rockler alum. plate I was using or planning on. I went to drill that hole for the Raizer's crank. Bit walked, plate now all messed up. aarggg. A new plate = around 80. I could sell the RR for maybe $60 - combined that's maybe $140 or so. A new lift will be more but can't be a ton more? or can it? I cannot seem to find a lift recommended for this big beast.

All ideas or advice is appreciated.

I hit the proverbial wall here too on same question. I still have no answer or idea what a solution might be. Looking at selling my big Freud and getting a mid-sized 2-2.5hp that has above adjustment and changes. Maybe a Freud 1700?
I may post over on Woodnet also - pretty actice place. Hate to spend extra money for another router if I can make this one work

Hi

I use two of the Freud tank routers in my router tables and you don't need the lift with them.

So you do all adjustments from below and pull the monster out to change the cutter?
Or do you have a workaround for that? Thanks Bob for replying !

Hi

I do all adjustments from below with the knob, I never need to pull the router out of the hole, I use the offset wrench all the time..

HI Joe

Your Welcome, once you have one you will make all your wrench's this way, you don't need to buy one you can take the wrench that came with your router and put some heat to it and bend it over in the "Z" , some routers come with two wrench's and this way keeps your fingers of the path of the wrench's.. and the ones that come with just one and a slide in pin. it helps to get the collet easy, that offset is great on all of them..
