Rich, I frequently use a smaller diameter gage pin behind a drill so that if it slips in the collet it can’t back up.

It seems to me that there is a lot of work left to get router lifts to use modern technology. For instance, wouldn’t using linear bearings (with the appropriate dust shields) make a lot more sense than what I see now which is the total lack of a smooth way to move a router up and down?

Thanks for your comments.
