After reading several entries on this site regarding home made router lifts, I thought I’d take a try at one myself. I used the plan found in Shopnotes #121. The instructions are relatively straight forward; took me about three days to complete, mostly because of work required on the threaded rod. I used oak instead of maple for the hard wood portions and man is it solid. The completed product works great & is extremely simple…and saved me a couple hundred bucks. I’d recommend this jig to anyone looking for an alternative to expensive commercial lifts.
