Default Rout-R-Lift ll

I was just browsing through the Lee Valley Catalog and noticed they have the Jessem Rout-R-Lift ll for $155.00. That is a good price for that particular lift from what I have seen elsewhere. Considering it has above the table bit changes I am going to order one today rather than spending $350.00 for the Woodpeckers lift I really wanted. If I treated woodworking more than a hobby and part time work I would go with the Woodpeckers lift but the Jessem lift will work very well I think.

Ken Bee, that sounds like a good deal. I'm not ready to buy a lift yet, heck, there are so many ideas and options
for a router table I still haven't formulated what kind of table I want to build.
I've been leaning toward a table saw extension but I can also see myself building a table.

Can you give me a link to the Lee Valley lift?

Thanks Mike, that looks good. I'll have to check out what Rigid router model I have to see if it'll fit.

Oh, on second thought, putting my rigid router in a lift would tie it up. I'll need to get another router.

If you already have a router to use in the lift it is a good deal. This model only handles the 3-1/2" diameter motors. If you have to buy a router and the lift you are better off going with the Triton TRA-001 router which works about the same as this lift but would give you 3-1/4 hp and under the table dust collection for less money. The Triton is shown in the Grizzly T10432 router table which is about $150 delivered. You can also just use the Grizzly T10432047 mounting plate in your table, cost is $13 plus shipping.

Like that's a bad thing!

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Does anyone have the under table dimensions for the Jessem with a Bosch 1617? I have an existing table I want to mount it in, however, there are some steel cross braces the I have to fight. I need clearance info to see if it will fit between what's there.
