I designed a quick action lever router lift for my shop. The lift slides extremely easy with steel bar slides. It’s quickly locked into place and unlocked for lowering. A stop block is incorporated so you can quickly and easily return to your previous position if you need to use the top surface. It was designed to go in a table saw extension wing which I will complete at a later date. Due to the pivot location of the lever there is a 2:1 or 3:1 mechanical advantage for easily adjusting the bit to a desired location. One of the main objectives with this lift was to keep the build very simple so no micro adjusting mechanism is used. I honestly don’t think it’s necessary anyway as I can fine tune the bit height by hand just fine.
For those who are interested I have a lot more info and plans here:
