I was planning to buy the Ryobi Router Table to get started. I am confused about people saying that I don't need a lift.
I assume I need to change height several times during the process of routing. The strong springs on my router make it impractical to reach under the table to adjust router height.
What am I missing?
thanks
Bryan

A router lift is a matter of preference,do need a router lift no, if your able to lift your insert out of the table you probably could get along without it. YOUR CHOICE

Welcome aboard Bryan.

Router lifts are a personal decision--some can't live without one, others don't see the need. With a pair of Bosch 1617's, i'm good without a lift--and for the money to get a really good one i could buy a big Triton router that also works well without a lift.

Is that to say i'll never buy one? No--if the right deal ever comes along (Jessem or Incra, almost new or still new in box, really really cheap)--i'd pick one up because i think it would be handy. Or at least fun to play with.

Do that which is best for YOU Bryan. That's the only right answer there is.

G'day Bryan, welcome to the forum.

What router do you have. It helps if you remove the springs for table mounted routers.
