I have been designing a table for my router. The router is a Milwaukee 5625. The lift will be Jessem’s Mast r lift II. I need the table for bits that can only be used in a table mounted router (i.e., drawer lock joint).
In researching table designs, I found a you tube video with a fellow using a power window motor. Since the motor is made to work a heavy load in short bursts the application seemed safe and appropriate. Has anyone designed and built their own motorization of actuating their router while mounted in a commercially available lift?
Specifically, how does one go about engineering the motorization electronics and sizing the transformer? The mechanical linkage shouldn’t be a problem as I have a garage machine shop; Bridgeport Mill and a 13X40 engine lathe, and lots of tooling. The gent in the video used a universal-joint/swivel socket adapter to solve the motor-to-lift shaft placement/alignment problem.
