This is my new router table and shop made lift. Cabinet is basic 3 slide out drawers for router bits and 2 drawers for routers and jigs and such. It has 4 inch dust ports that do a great job. Top is 1 1/2 inch thick with laminate surface, i inlaid aluminum tracks for jigs to travel in. Fence is adjustable, just need to add t-tracts for feather boards and hold downs. Route lift is a project with many do overs till I got it to work right. 5 gears , 4 on threaded 1/2 rod do the lifting. large center gear rotates on a 3×4 pvc pipe reducer that does double duty, gear support and open to drawer below to allow router clean air that is dust free. It has top adjust location so you turn one rod and all 4 turn to lift router. Tried wood gears but they were not sooth when turning so i made them from 1 inch nylon. works great. hope you like my project.
