WOOD magazine review

JessEm Rout-R-Lift FX Router Lift

Review Summary

High points: Quick-release mounting mechanism makes it simple to return an installed midsize router motor to its handheld base. Has same easy-to-read scale and 16-tpi thread pitch as the Mast-R-Lift. Plate leveling adjustments are made from above the table. Low price and good performance make it a Top Value for a midsize router. Low points: Scale cannot be zeroed, so figuring bit height changes requires some math.
More points: JessEm makes this lift for Rockler (model 27956, $180) but the plate size is 8×11".
