Question Shop bult router lift

I am in the process of drawing up plans for a new (replacement) table. Approximately 10 years ago I had found a plan to a router lift that was really simple and easy to build. I built it and love it but now can not find the plans I used. It is a "L" shaped arm, the lower end of the "L" that pushes up on the bottom of the router and the upper leg is attached to a threaded rod which exits out the side of the cabinet. This rod allows for adjusting the height of the bit without standing on your head or lifting the top of the table up. Hopefully someone can make sense of this and knows where to find these plans. If needed I can take a photo of what I now have and want to replace.
Thanks,

Hi Ken,

Is there any reason you cannot take apart the one you have and use it as a pattern?

I am not sure if this is exactly what you are talking about but it might be worth looking at. Do a search on google for router lift. I found a good one that looks kind of like that on American Woodworker.

HI Ken

Not to sure why you want to make one when you can get one for about the same price ,that you will put into it and it will work every time ...if you want to use one get one made in the KISS way of doing it..

Bob,
Part of the reasoning behind building versus buying, is I am currently unemployed, aka no extra funds, I have the materials that are needed and the one I am referring to has the the adjustment wheel on the side extending to the exterior of the cabinet. I have pondered buying a commercial unit but I do not like the adjustment through the top of the table.
