JessEm Mast-R-Lift II Unboxing and Installation

08-13-2014 06:10 AM by Marty Backe | 3 comments »

In the above video I do an unboxing of the JessEm Mast-R-Lift II router lift that I recently bought. After showing what’s in the box, I fabricate a new router table top and install the lift. I conclude with some observations of its accuracy. New TopMy existing router table is shop made, but the existing router plate opening won’t fit the JessEm lift, so I need to make a new top. Most of my shop cabinets have a 1” thick melamine top. This material is very stout (...

Video: Homemade Router Lift #3

04-06-2014 12:52 PM by JSB | 4 comments »

When I sold my table saw station both of my routers and lifts went with it. I’m finally getting around to making another router table but first I needed the lift. For those who are interested I put together a quick video of the construction. I used John’s plan from ibuildit.ca for the third time. I have no complaints with this plan and it works great. Because it’s a paid plan I didn’t go into any exact details. The plans are detailed and well worth the asking price. ...

Router Table with Incra componets and 6in Dust Collection

02-12-2014 03:16 AM by Bridger | 1 comment »

Since I relied on many pictures when I was designing my router table I thought I would share some of what I came up with. I used: Incra Maste-R-Lift II, Incra LS17 Positioner Super Fence, PC 7518 Router, Kreg paddle switch and a iGauging 6” DRO Additional pictures here Though I found many pictures of tables with Incra lift systems, I never found one that showed how to attach a iGauging DRO (digital readout) to the lift. Also I never saw any satisfactory locations for the DRO...

PROBLEM - Pinnacle Precision Router Lift / PRL

01-25-2014 11:44 PM by SilverEagle | 1 comment »

Hi all - I am looking for some help / advice for my Pinnacle Precision Router Lift V2 with PC router installed. I have had it for a couple of years and am very satisfied with it. When setting up my shop when we moved into our new home, I found the micrometer dial and the central post for it now stand proud of the surface of the lift plate by about 1/16” – see photo. This makes the lift unusable since the dial will interfere with wood sliding over the lift plate. Mil...

Norm Abram Router Table #3: Router Lift

11-06-2013 07:20 PM by Litrenta | 5 comments »

Well now that the router table was done, the one thing I’ve always wanted is a router lift. The Craftsman router I have is absolutely horrible at setting depth, the whole mechanism locks up so I just have to keep fudging it until I get it to the proper height (not ideal). I found this in Shopnotes a while ago and within a couple weeks of me starting my table I noticed Steve Ramsey from Woodworking For Mere Mortals built it as well so it was nice to see the whole process come to light...

Router Table with Motorized Lift

08-26-2013 03:35 PM by Denco | 5 comments »

First time posting a project. I’m still a novice and was in way over my head, but after a long time, here’s my router table. The lift is motorized using a PLC controller and a 12VDC motor normally used for automatic car seats in Honda automobiles. The 120VAC to 12VDC conversion was accomplished using a computer power supply. Most of the wood I used was cheap wood from the big box stores or ugly scraps I had on-hand, so I painted it red, white, and blue and put clear coats over it....

Router table and cabinet for Incra LS positioner and fence #2: The Top

08-14-2013 05:10 AM by jdcook72 | 0 comments »

As it turns out, I didn’t think to create a blog for the project until after I had already started. So, the top is already done. Construction was pretty straight forward, two layers 3/4 inch MDF with laminate surface and hardwood (soft maple) edging, corners rounded and edges chamfered. I started out with a basic design in Sketchup to calculate my dimensions and where the fence, positioner and lift would go. As I progressed with the build, I made adjustments to different dimensions and ended ...

DIY Router Lift for Plunge Router #1: With Gears!

02-22-2013 04:10 AM by Lumberpunk | 9 comments »

Ok I’ve been really wanting some sort of router lift for a while now, my Freud FT2200VCE is REALLY slow to adjust under the table, the Router Raizer get mixed reviews and the Unilift seem to be running in the $700 range + long wait time to get one (and I would buy a lathe if I had that much lying around). Seems like most of the DIY router lifts are for fixed base routers or pretty much require you to permanently install your plunge router under the table. As it’s my only router th...
