Hi, I just wanted to let anyone know who may be looking for a cheap above the table router adjuster that this is a great deal. I just found that Grizzly tool is discontinuing the Router Raizer RZ100 and RZ200. The price is $29.95 plus shipping. I found them elsewhere on the internet for $89 so I figured this would be a lot cheaper that a lift and I have read some great reviews. I will post one as soon as I get it and i finish my new router table top. Thanks, Bill

Looks like only the H4333 Router Raizer RZ200 is $29.95. Says it fits Makita Router. The more universal model. H3576 is only $5 off usual price.

If I am wrong let me know would love to try one out

I have a Router Raizer but I don’t really know how to install it. I have a Freud 2000E that I use in my router table. The kit that I have says it’s for the Freud 2000. I’d like to use it but I just need some guidence. I would hate to disassemble my router only to realize that I have the wrong Router Raizer system.

Hi, John I found it at the Grizzly website. It may say that it is discontinued but if you call they still have them for sale. Also Dr Steve if you call they will give a different price than what is listed. I asked the guy twice and he said that they both are $29. Hopefully he knew what he was talking about. I have to get the table top finished this week so that I can be ready when it comes. I am trying something different in that I and going to sandwich a piece a 1/4” steel between two 3/4” pieces of plywood since the Fein router weighs a lot more than my other router. I will let everyone know how the installation goes when I get it. Bill

Just a quick question. I have the RZ100 for the Hitachi M12V and I recently aquired a second M12V for an Incra table. Will the RZ200 work on the Hitachi?

I just got off the phone with Grizzly. Sadly, my operator said that the online price of $47.25 was correct and she would not give it to me for any less.

I called Grizzly this morning and the RZ100 for the Hitachi M12V2 is $47.25, the RZ200 is $29.95. I went ahead and ordered the RZ100 anyhow as it’s still cheaper than anywhere else, and they only have a few left. The operator did not expect that the RZ100 would go down to $29.95 – Unfortunately!

Kirk,
I think you will be pretty happy with the Router Raizer. Even at $47 it is a great price. Got mine last week and installed it over the weekend. Works nicely. Just be sure to follow the directions ( I always thought it was just for packaging material) for a nice install. I have to scrounge for some additional pieces because I drilled a 3/4 inch hole in my router plate when I jumped the gun.

Well i finally got around to installing the Router Raizer last week. I have to agree with Steve in that the instructions need to be read very well. It was a little daunting to me to have to drill in to a Fein RT1800 but the instructions are very well laid out to each router that it fits. I am heading to the store today to get some 3/4 ply to finish my new router table top. My plan is to sandwich a piece of 1/4 steel between the plywood for a very sturdy but heavy top. The Fein weighs in at 18lbs and my old top wanted to sag a little bit. I am also going to try and get around to posting some shop pictures and to post a review soon once my new table is complete. Bill
