Good idea Harry.
Everyone comes up with interesting jigs and fixes.
I just finished a router table and my lift is a wooden thread.
Works for me.
Router sits in a cradle and the thread lifts the cradle.
Thread is 1 1/2" wide with 3 turns per inch.

Any plans for dust collection? I like some of the setups that have dust collection both under the table in a box and in the fence.

More questions:
1. Is there a detailed parts list and sources of parts, part numbers, etc? (I've gone mad at times trying to find specialized parts.
2. What equipment do I need to build this? Mainly, anything beyond a tablesaw and router?

It's a cool idea, to have both a horizontal and vertical capability in one table.

This is my design and I've been Using it for over 5 years. If you want to build it and need a plan. I have a 32 page plan available. Just send me a PM

Table saw,drill press, $6 to $10 for nuts and bolts all found at box stores. Scraps from your shop. Can't be built from construction grade lumber. All my plans need to be such that special parts are at a very minimum. This plan uses a connector nut. But still found at the box stores.

Al, very interesting and thought provoking. I don't know how much advice you can really get until a person uses it, having said that, I watched 4 of your videos, (are there more?), I've toyed with the idea for several years of making a horizontal router table that has a swinging or arcing mechanism in it to allow me to change the angle of the router. (But thinking about it is as far as I've got so far. When I REALLY need to have it, that's when I'll get serious!)

Anyway, great job!

Well Jack if you already have a router lift you can build this one to complete what your router table and or lift left out.

My router lift plan has sold in 10 different countries and almost 100 copies. I haven't had a single complaint or negative comment.

Pat his last activity on the forum was January 2016. You could try sending him a PM. If he still has the same email address he should get that. Best to send him your email address when you do as there was a password change back around that time I think and he may not be able to log back into the forum to answer a PM.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
