Finaly finished my horizontal router lift for my home made horizontal slot mortiser (more details about it you can see on my ’’Horizontal slot mortiser’’ project).
My father in law made metal stand and I made the rest from playwood and some hard plastic material 8mm thick, here called LEXAN. Threaded rod is 20 mm in diameter and I can move router 3cm down and 7cm up from point zero. The dept is adjusted with threaded rod on router. There is also a switch ‘on hand’.
The rest you can see on photos. All coments and questions are welcome.

Wow the is a great machine and a monster. You will love using it as I do mine.

I built the one from Matthias and love it and use it all the time.

If you ever decide to build a smaller version maybe consider the one made by shopbuilt. His plans are free.
