WOOD magazine review

JessEm Rout-R-Lift Router Lift

Review Summary

High points: Fits almost any router; may be your only choice if you want to install your current router in a lift. Oversize insert plate can be retrofitted to almost any router table. Low points: Offset wrenches or collet extender are needed for above-table bit changes. One full turn of the crank changes bit height by 1/20", which we found confusing for small adjustments. Scale cannot be zeroed.
More points: Total vertical travel is shortest in test (2-1/2"), but further adjustments can be made on the installed router. Jet’s XACTA-Lift, an accessory to Jet tablesaws, is identical to Rout-R-Lift, except for its aluminum insert plate.
