I have and use the Jessem, bought it from Rutlands years ago. I bought the reduction ring set, but that was all. I have made a cranked spanner, that really helps too. A great piece of kit.

Default Router Lift Jessam

I have recently purchased a Jessam unit and am thrilled with it. It was easy to install and even easier to use. I have never used the Woodpecker version. Previously I was using a Triton insert so I suppose the Jessam could not be the ultimate and I maybe would not know.

I have two of the Woodpecker units, and love them both. I cant imagine for under $350 there being a better lift out there, but ive never used any other to know.

I just so happen to sell the woodpecker lifts and they are my best sellers, I have never had one returned and they are a great company.

I wouldn't trade my Jessem lift for any other. It's built like a tank and works as smooth as glass. 7 yrs old and still a work horse.

I've used the Bench Dog, Jessem and the new Woodpecker lifts in classes or friends shops. I'd love any of them, but I like the Woodpecker best as it's the easiest to use. I love the new sidewinder attachment and I like how he made it so you can just retrofit the sidewinder with the older ones so they aren't obsolete.

I've emailed a lot with the owner and he's been awesome and he listens to suggestions. You won't go wrong either way.

I like both Jessem and Woodpecker. With the new Jessem Mast-R-Lift II, it will fit different brands of routers. New Woodpecker lift has the side winder. That said, I would buy the Incra Jessem Mast-R-Lift II because it will hold any routers and the magna ring inserts are the easiest to take in and out.
