Topic tags/keywords: jessem router lift

Just ordered the jessem rout-r-lift II from woodcraft because its on sale this month. I was wondering if anyone knows the answer to this question:

I have one of those 3-1/2 in routers with the clever push button spindle lock. (Masterforce) Will this lift raise the body high enough above the table to use it? There is no spindle nut.

It depends on the location of the spindle lock button. The throat opening for the lift is 3-3/4”, so if you have to lift it far, there won’t be room to get your finger in there. However, you should be able to orient the motor in the lift in such a way that you can reach it from underneath the table.

The lift will not lift the body above the table. You might be able to engage the spindle loc depending on its location on the body.
