Keith, I use a Router Workshop table and it works very well for me. Others prefer different table set ups for various reasons. They all work, just a matter of what you are most comfortable with. If your router makes height adjustments by turning the motor in the base then a lift makes adjustments easier. My Bosch routers make in line height adjustments so the controls are always in the same position and a lift is really not needed.
