i would like to poll senior members about router lifts as a matter of interest.

i see mostly from new members discussions about router lifts.

how many of our older more experienced members use router lifts??

no disrespect meant, just curious.

Hi levon,

Don't know if I'm an "older" or even "more experienced" member :haha: but I had a lift on my M12V that I sold to BJ a while back and really enjoyed it. I do not have a lift on my DW618, but really find that I do not need one using the fixed base in the table. Now how is that for a fickled answer? :fie:

Seriously, I think the lifts are great on the larger more heavy routers, and only an expensive luxury on the smaller less heavy ones. With so many routers coming with the lift built in now, I think it is a nice convenience no matter what the size. You can really zero in on the accruacy with one much easier than without.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it :yes4:

thanks for the input Ken.

im a fisherman and buying lures reminds me of some router accessories. lots of lures are made to catch the fisherman, not the fish:)

i use the plunge way too, but have seen some do circles on the table. what i was trying to show is that if you have some type jig mounted to the table and moving it will make it difficult to reposition exactly, then you have a problem with the hole for above table adjustments.

i see you see what im saying BobJ. and there are probably numerous ways to make projects where you need to do projects and need to make multiple passes and the above table adjustment is covered by the stock or jig.
