For what I do, my routers are all set at the same depth, and in my router table. Been using them like that for over 15 years.I'm thinking of just attaching it to my router table and locking the depth at a single level. Is this a stupid idea?
Would I be better off building or buying a router riser?
Should I forget about it and just buy a new one?
Yes, buy a new one, and send me that one. Hehehe
I'd keep it. I don't like router lifts, I just pop the plate off, change bits, or whatever, and pop the plate back in. Make a simple, dedicated table, and stick it in that. If you want/need adjustment, I'd say buy another, you can't go wrong with an extra router or two.
