luckily i stumbled upon the jessem lift at acme tools for $299 plus theres a $30 REFUNDME offer code in honor of tax day that brings it all the way down to $269. i guess it will still be $299 tomorrow but the refundme code ends tonight. i was wanting the incra version for the dust collection thru the rings but i sure couldnt pass this up.
so if you have been thinking of getting a lift im not sure you can beat this price.

Nice when people share about bargains. I took another route, buying a Triton TRA001 router for the table. Price was $270 total. Had a Rockler lift, but really like using the Triton better than the lift. It is also more powerful than the Bosch 1617 it replaced. Sold the Rockler lift to Herb some time ago.

yeah if i was looking at a monster router today i'd get the triton. i have an old 7518 with low mileage and honestly i dont plan on using many big bits, raised panel ect.. much anymore.
using the 1617 in the woodpecker plate & top was the plan til i saw this deal. i got the bosch with 2 regular bases. it will fit nicely in a horizontal router im thinking of making and still be there for hand held stuff

Good choice then Tim. I notice it has the twist lock inserts, which is really a nice feature. Seems all the suppliers are going to that type insert. That bronze finish is really nice too.
