Please make certain that you buy a router now that will work with a lift later. Lifts are only made for a limited number of routers.

I use a PC 890 in my router table. For the first couple of years, I used it without a lift. This router can be adjusted from above the table even if you do not have a lift. It works okay in that mode.

Later I added a lift (Woodpecker) and it works GREAT with the lift. I really appreciate how precisely I can adjust the height and the ability to “pop” the router to the top for bit changes and set it back down just as quickly.

The PC 890 and 7518 are well established standard routers and with either one you can be quite certain that a lift will be available when you want one.
