Hello All

My question is this:
I have a heavy 3HP router in a table. It has a stud on the side of it that raises it up when needed. Do I need to use the lock each time? It will not go down because of the screw stop on the side. The only way it can go is up, but I think the weight will hold it down.

What do you think?

For safety use the lock each time you set up your router.

Many people use a car scissors jack to raise the router without too many problems but very few seem to lock the router.
They rely on the weight to hold it down.
I would never rely on this.
The lock is there for a good reason so use it all the time.
