Build: Drawer slide router lift
I think this a little different setup from most people.
My goal is a router table that has a lift built into the base of the table, i.e. - not hanging from the top like most lifts. Then the top is on a piano hinge that allows me to open it up to make it really easy to change the bit.
This is where I am right now. I have a piece of 3/4-16 all thread on order for the drive, but I think a 3/8-16 would probably be just as good. Next is to build the structure in to the base of he table to attach it.
It shows the router held in place with a zip tie, but that is just for the proof of concept. The real hold down will either be a pipe clamp, or a couple of 1/4-20 bolts with another similar bracket on the other side.
