Default Router lift suggestion

Check the Triton routers. They have a built in lift system that is thru the router plate and the bits can be changed from the top. I have the 2-1/4 hp model M0F001 it has a number of good safety features.

I have yet to see anyone make a lift that is better than the Woodpecker ones. There are even small differences between the Kreg and Incras that they make for them. It's a straight forward design and it's as rugged as you will ever need. I was told that the Incra magnet system isn't always flush and that would really bother me greatly. The Woodpecker system can be leveled from the top, unlike the Kreg. I personally feel that's a very handy thing. The Kreg is built for it's own table for the most part. The Woodpecker also has calibrations on the face plate for lining things up if you chose to use that feature.

Just my thoughts and I've used most systems now in the schools I go to and in friends shops. I have just done really well with all my Woodpecker products and I love how they stand by their products with no questions asked.
