this is my router lift i just completed.
its made from some sort of screw clamp that i got from my dads shed (not sure exactly what it was originally for) and a scrap wood handle. what i did was to cut one of the big screw peices in half and then i expoxyed one nut in the bench as you can see and the epoxyed the other nut into a scraphandle and the epoxyed the handle and nut onto the thread of the screw.
now when i turn the handle the whole screw thread moves up or down, it works very well indeed.
i thought id post this idea for people who, like me, dont have a lot of space for the other sort of router lifts you see.
i originally got this idea from a tip that someone sent to wood magazine.
hope it helps some of you.
