OK, about ready to start on the next project… a router table extension for my Ridgid R4511. First thing I’m needing is a router plate and I’d love to get a router lift… Currently using the Craftsman 2HP #17542 fixed based router as my designated router table router.

My question… what are you thoughts on a great router plate/lift set up that is affordable… are there any “no brainer” great deals out there? Of course, I’m not asking for much, something super easy to use, great quality and at a super cheap rate.
