Description

This cast, blanchard ground, anodized aluminum plate is flat to +/- .002". At 9-1/4” x 11-3/4” and 3/8” thick, it will accommodate the largest plunge routers available. This precision mechanical assembly will lift the bit exactly 1/32" for each full rotation or as little as .001" per graduation. The center opening of the plate will clear the largest, 3-1/2" diameter raised panel bits. Reducing rings with 1", 1-3/16" (stepped) and 2-5/8" openings come standard with each PlungeLIFT.

Woodpeckers PlungeLift Router Lift

Review Summary

High points: Adjustable “snuggers” in the edges of the insert help it fit snugly in the table opening. Plate-leveling adjustments are made from above the table. Low points: You can’t change bits from above the table without a collet extender or offset wrenches. Mounting a router may involve partial disassembly, so you’ll want to dedicate a router to this lift. More points: 32-tpi thread pitch makes bit height adjustments slow, but precise.
