I finally finished the router table extension wing that I started back in January. I installed the Jessem Router-Lift-II in between the factory rails of the Ridgid TS3650 (I shifted them down a bit).

I really like the lift – the build quality is fantastic – but it’s my first so I don’t have much to compare it to. Since I don’t swing a lot of large bits, the smaller (PC690) router is more than adequate for my needs.

Looks great. Here is a similar build without the router lift (still to come).

Nice project of the table extension router table and the fence. You’ll get a lot of use from that one and you can use the common fence with the table saw!! Smart thinking!!

@John – I really like your saddle/fence/dust intake. I think I’ll borrow that.

I put the same lift in the extension of my old Unisaw. Boy has it increased the versatility and accuracy of the router table over my old “Crapsman” unit!

Nice project. I picked up the same router lift over 2 years ago and finally made my router table. I like everything about it, especially the price. Here is a link to my blogs showing the construction of the router table (part 1) and the adjustable fence (part 2).
