thank you. Yes there is a scissor jack under to raise and lower. The job isn't finished yet. There are no drawers in the carcass yet. My original wish was to have a sheet of Regupol rubber between the bench top and the height adjustable top. Unfortunately this fell through. However my workmanship of the h/a top was so poor I used grip mat between it and the bench top. Fortunately or not I don't know yet, there was a double void under the router plate, so I filled it with grip mat and small pieces of hard rubber in an attempt to cover vibration and noise. I will try to take a few pictures of the under table and carcass and email them tomorrow. If you have access to "The Woodworker and Woodturner" from the UK the November 2012 has a full pictorial of my green h/a bench which also is in my profile at Router Forums.
Have you had a go at building a h/a workbench? I wrote an article for" The Router" magazine from UK when it was still being published back 18 years ago. In it I challenged the readers to apply the principles to make one to suit the work they do and their specific physical sizes. If your interested I send the specific edition in case a library nearby has a coppy.
