Default Does anybody have a Kreg router table?

I bought a JessEm router lift awhile back and don’t want to spend the money on the rings and think they should have come with the lift.

Anyway I bought a set of rings from Woodpecker but they don’t fit. I’m not sure if I’m going to return them if I can that is or modify the Lift to accept them. I saw a set of Kreg Rings for a lot less money and need to know what size they are and how many lock tabs they have.

Below is a comparison between JessEm and Woodpecker. They both are 3 7/8” in diameter and I want to know if the Kreg is the same dia and if they are 4 locking tabs or 3.

Thanks Bob, well that's disappointing. I thought I might get lucky.

if the post was deleted you won't see it but the notification of the post still goes out...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

oh, ok.
On other forums, if a post is deleted, it still shows up in the post count as an empty narrow box, it just says "post 3 was deleted" so theres no confusion.

so now what was said the needed to be deleted...

and on other forums posting replies don't cause missed post and there is a lot less scrolling...

The actual message comes through on my email. there was no problem about the message, i just thought as others have been moaning about the site add ons lately it was another glitch.

Thanks Bruce,
I wish there would have been more formation on these before I bought it. This is a huge issue toward the negative side for JessEm Router lifts. I can no longer recommend JessEm Lifts because of this. I will make this my own little crusade to write as many negative reviews about this so that everybody will know before buying..

I can't return it now and debating on modifying the lift to fit the rings or selling it and buying the Kreg Lift.
