Welcome, geraldvg. It sounds like fortune has smiled upon you—good, old tools in a shop that is nearly as large as Luxembourg.

I can be of no help to your router lift query. I think they’re oversold gizmos. It is my view that I have to kneel down to eyeball or measure the height of the router bit anyway, why would adjusting from the top, in a standing position, be any kind of advantage?

So, my answer, and the first of many you will receive from smarter LJs than I, is, None of the Above.

As for your old Delta/Rockwell stuff, I am a qualified environmental dismantler of those tools which have been found to emit some foul chemicals in a larger shop such as yours.

You would be well advised to ship all your tools to me and I will take care of them responsibly and see that they are no longer a threat to your household and indeed your entire community. It may be necessary to include your router lift, but only if it is a Benchdog, Woodpecker or Jessem. Others seem to be ok.
