Default Lift for Bosch 1613EVS

I am looking for a lift for a Bosch 161EVS. I haven't found any lifts advertised for this router. It is rather old. The diameter of the motor is 3.5".

Can it be fit to one of the newer lifts on the market? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Dale

Hi Dale - Welcome to the forum
The new MLCS motorized lift is sized for the 3.5" motors. I think the Jessum and Kreg lifts have optional "pads" to adapt their lifts.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Hi Dale

Why not use the one built in the router ?

"The fixed base's advanced bit height adjustment system allows you to conveniently adjust the bit height from above the router table."

Dale, see the first photo below; that is a Bosch 1613EVS. Is this the router you are asking about? The second photo is a 1617EVS, the third is an old 1601 stuck in a PC base with it's normal base on the right. The 1617 and the 1601 are both 3-1/2" OD. Adapters are available to use these two in lifts.

I have a 1613 and I did not know it can be adjusted from the table top. I guess I have to read through the operation guide. Thanks

The 1613 can not be adjusted from above the table.

Thanks for the quick reply. I am rather new in wood working. Someone suggested using a scissor jack to make router lift. Will it work?

I'm still using one too. I don't think the motor housing is round, but as many times as I have used it, I've never had the motor out of the base.

Putting that 1601 in a PC base is a good idea. I bought two of those routers reconditioned over 20 years ago I think, and those bases were the most impossible to adjust that I've ever seen. Maybe I should offer them cheap to anyone who just wants the motor to put in a lift-but buyers would have to get the motor out of the base. I never used them to amount to anything because you simply cannot fine adjust them.
