Default Router Lifts

Hi,

I am a new member and new to woodworking. I am considering buying a Porter Cable 892 router and table mount it. Will I need a router lift with this power tool?

Thanks

A router lift is never needed but its kinda like power steering in a car you dont need it but it sure makes life easier.

Dont forget to live life for fear of death grasp each day and live it to it full otherwise it is pointless.

Hi

Think about going a bit higher in the model number, a 895 comes with with lift built in..

Amazon.com: Porter-Cable 895PK 12 Amp 2-1/4-Horsepower Fixed and Plunge Base: Home Improvement

Thank you for your response. When you say the lift is built-in, are you referring to the Table Height Adjuster Tool?

"With its user-friendly design and efficient, yet low-noise 2-1/4 HP motor with superior electronic feedback (10,000 - 23,000 RPM), the Porter-Cable 895PK offers precision for superior results.
Brass post busing ensures durability, while a dust collection insert helps improve visibility and keep your workspace clean.
For added convenience you can replace bits with one hand, a bypass control makes larger adjustments, and an easy-to-use knob tackles more precise and minute alterations to 1/128-inch.
Made of durable die-cast aluminum, the 895PK makes it a breeze to make height adjustments and release the motor from above, rather than below, your workspace.
It also works with most 890 and 690 router series bases and comes with a helpful CD-ROM that breaks down the process of constructing a work table, a carrying case with plenty of bit storage, a transparent sub-base, 1/4-inch and 1/2-inch self-releasing collets, one wrench, dust collection insert, and table-top height adjustment handle with measurement ring."
