Default router raizer

Has anyone used the Routerraizer? Does the router have extra holes drilled in it to attach the lifter to it?

Hi Ellsworth,
I have the Router Raizer mounted on my Hitachi M12V in one of the tables & it works great.

After a lot of thought, I went for a Jessem Rout-R-lift. Fits almost all plunging routers. Incorporates a good plate, great mechanism, insert rings. If buying again I would also consider the Incra lift. It is expensive, but is flat and great to use, no problems.

Am keen to hear more on this device too. I have a 3612C which moves between skis, handheld and table - meaning that I can't anchor it to the table in a lift. Would be very interested to hear from others (particularly those with a 3612 or 3612C) that have this fitted.

Has any one installed the router raizer on a Porter Cable 7539 and if so I would like to know how it went and what permanent modifications had to be made to the router.

I have been using a router raiser on a PC 7539 for many years, I like it a lot. the router can still be used above the table if you want but now has a fine adjustment instead of just sliding up and down the posts.

Same here. It's a bit pricey for what you get but the parts are high quality.

As you know then the 7539 has a leaver to turn to release the hold on the height setting of the router so my question is, does the Router Raizer need that tightening mechanism or does it replace it?
At the present I have an under the table adjustment but I have to use one hand to release the hold on the height while turning the adjustment knob with the other. It is very unhandy to say the least.

Hi

The one I have I just about always lock the mechanism once I have the bit set I have from time to time forget to lock it but it works just that way also..
