Right now I have a pretty crude Q&D router table I slapped together over a year ago, and I honestly haven’t used it much, mostly because of the low confidence I have in the accuracy while using it.
EDIT: I found a picture in my workshop LOL
I have an old Craftsman Professional 3.5 HP Plunge router model 315.275110 that I have been using.
I am in the brainstorming, and soon design phase of a new, improved router table with dust collection, drawers etc… I would like to incorporate a router lift, as this has been the most pain in the butt aspect of my current setup (reaching underneath to change bit height). Is there an router lift that would accommodate my monster router? Or should I budget for a new router and just use the Craftsman for hand routing.
Also, which lift/plate would you all recommend, and I am teetering on whether I will build the fence, or buy one. What would you suggest I do, and if you say buy, what fence would you suggest. Please keep in mind, I will have a budget with this… I would rather not spend $700 on a router table LOL, although I know it is very possible.
