Default Which router for Jessem lift

Hello everybody,

I am new to this forum and am looking for some advice on router choice.

I own a Jessem table with a lift that can handle certain plunge routers. At the moment it's running with a festool of1010. For future projects this router is not powerful enough so I would like to replace it. The options are:

- hitachi m12v & m12v2
- dewalt 625
- Makita rp2301fc

I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on quality of these routers and which one I should buy.

Thanks!

welcome to the forums Jasper...

who made your lift and will it handle just motors..

no lift and go w/ a Bosch 1619...

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

Welcome to the forum. Stick's advice is usually right on. Hard to beat Bosch tools for quality and value.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

It will be a dedicated router for in the table. I have a jessem prestige router lift so I dont need any built-in lift. This lift will only handle plunge routers

I'm basically looking for the best quality motor out of these options. These are the ones that fit without modifications.

Thanks for the help!

- hitachi m12v & m12v2
- dewalt 625
- Makita rp2301fc

but your lift will handle the Bosch 1617...

Makita would be the best motor IMO...

I have both the M12V and the V2 (plus a VC fixed, I like my Hitachis). The V2 was designed for table use. It has a slightly wider opening than the V and there are plugs at the bottom of the columns to make it easy to take the springs out. It also has a half nut on the threaded adjustment rod that will engage or disengage the threads as you need. Lots of power and very smooth.

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.
