Default Recommended lift for a DW625 router

Good morning.
I am finally getting around to building a router table using a DW 625 router I've had for quite a while. Anybody have any recommendations for the best router lift to purchase? Thanks

When you buy a tool your are buying the company behind it. When you have a problem you don't want to hear excuses or "we won't refund your money but will allow you to return it for credit" Having said that I would highly recommend "Router Raizer" I had a problem THAT I CAUSED MYSELF. I called Router Raizer directly to see how I could solve my dilemma. They solved it by actually going to a woodworking store and buying the part that I messed up and shipping it to me for free!!! This was not a cheap ten dollar part either it was very expensive. I can't say enough good things about the company. Besides the service their product is excellent and very reasonably priced.

Thanks. Since getting your reply, I've looked into the Router Raizer and it seems pretty simple and economical.

On the router raizer installation, did you keep the springs or remove them? For my uses, I have no need to use my table mounted router as a plunge. So, I see no need to retain the springs and make the raizer mechanism work against the added load.

Good point, Sir. I'll be interested in what the replies are.

I used the springs since that is what the directions said. Prior to installing the Raizer when I was lifting it by hand I had removed the springs. I'm not sure why they tell you to leave them on but they cause no extra effort by leaving them on
