Default lift for a 1613 Bosch?

Can anyone tell me if there is a lift for a 1613 BoschEVS router? I've received so many conflicting opinions that I need a definitive answer. I realize it's an old timer but it does yeoman work in my router table and I'd like to add a lift to it. thank you, Dr. bob

Hey Bob... I believe that JessEm makes a lift that will fit your router: Give them a call to verify..

Bob, Bosch recommends that the 1613EVS not be used in a router table; in fact the only "plunge bodied" router they do recommend for table use is the 1619EVS. The 1613EVS is a great router for hand held or ski jig use. You can see me cutting out a top for a mounting plate with my 1613EVS in the attached photo.

If you want Bosch quality in a lift your best bet is to buy a 1617EVS motor only from CPO. This motor will work with most router lifts so you get your choice of features in a lift. The 1617EVS uses the same collets/nuts and wrenches as the 1613EVS. You can also use the new RA1152 offset wrenches with both models. I use and highly recommend the Type 4 Musclechuck for Bosch routers.

Bosch is spoken here!

Welcome, Dr. Bob...

Take a peek at the manual (towards the end) by clicking on the link below...Jessem seems to have a lift for that router. Can only assume it's still available...suggestion above to give Jessem a call is probably best...

Others may chime in with better ideas or reviews...

Good luck...

Nick

Mike didn't mention it, but the 1617EVS has 'above table ht. adjustment'. You might not even need the lift.

Dan, that is because so many people just keep cranking the adjuster until it pushes the E clip off the end of the adjuster instead of using the three detents first. Also people that want a lift "Want a lift!"

Dr. Bob. as you can see there is a lot of playful joking on the forums. I don't use a router lift, I follow the "Keep it simple" method and pop my routers out of the table to change bits.(With all but my Triton) I have no reason to use the through the table adjuster.

And Dan, the motor in a lift is not subject to the E clip problem.

I may be testing a router lift in the near future but I am a hard sell on them.

`I don't use a router lift, I follow the "Keep it simple" method and pop my routers out of the table to change bits.`

And to make major height adjustments. I also can`t see a lift in my future. You can always spend the money on something you need more. By the way, the router plate makes a pretty good offset base for hand routing. My table router rarely comes off the router insert plate.

It is just not fair for Mike the RETIRED MODERATOR To have so much knowledge. Now as Fledgling Wood Worker Hobbyist, I am most near intimidated to even write anymore. It is uncanny to me read the posts and the answers that come from this forum. I appreciate and enjoy the news, the education and a bit of the Jangling that is produced here. Good Work and keep it up.
