Looks like a creative approach for a lift.

Very nice innovation. I never thought of mounting a plunge router to a table, but it looks like it would be simpler to build this lift to accommodate a plunge router than to build a lift to take a regular motor. Well done!

Thanks guys for the feedback.. They say necessity is the mother of invention. Once I thought about for a long time, I thought of a car jack and went from there… And I use it a lot….:o)#

Good Idea!!

But it’s cracking my mind….
If I understand it well, the height adjustment goes along the spring-loaded posts?
So, when you’re at the desired height, do you lock your router with it’s cam-lever?
Sorry for my English.

Thank’s for answering my questions.

Hey Bas,
I don’t use the locking cam on the router. I use the locking nut on the rod to hold in place. If you think about it in reverse, all you are doing with the cam is locking it so it will not spring back while using it.
Cheers
