WOOD magazine review

Bench Dog ProLift Router Table Lift

Review Summary

High points: With its nickel-plated steel insert plate, cast-aluminum carriage, and stout lead screw, this built-like-a-tank lift should last a lifetime. The intuitive, easy-to-read scale slips onto the included 9/16" socket, and zeroes with a simple twist on the socket. Low points: Steel reducer rings must be leveled to the insert plate and fastened with screws (unlike the simple twist-to-lock rings on other lifts), and can damage a bit that comes into contact.
Insert plate lacks a leveling system.
