I have a Jet WorkShop 708100 … like the ProShop but with an open stand. I have had it for almost 4 years (paid $399 for it), and am quite happy with it. There’s is nothing I have wanted to do with it that I could not get done, including cutting 8/4 red oak.

I don’t care much for the steel wings, and have considered installing cast iron wings … it just hasn’t been a priority.

As for the router lift, YES, they are definitely worth it. I have one from Woodpeckers … don’t recall what I gave for it … and it makes height adjustment a breeze. After using mine for a couple of years, I wouldn’t be without one. Full disclaimer: I have a Bench Dog stand-alone router table, so I have no experience with one mounted on a tablesaw wing.
