Topic tags/keywords: mlcs router lift motorized powerlift power router lift tech tools router accessories lifts router tables

I was wondering if anyone has one of these yet? Being both a tech and tool addict, I couldn’t resist such an interesting new toy. I also use my router table ALOT…it gets as much of a workout as my table saw does for sure. I missed out on the first round (they sold out faster then I expected) – so mine is coming on May 16th. I have two possible tables to put this on…..one is my TS extension table (cast iron) and the other is my table with an Incra LS router fence system. I am leaning towards the Incra as that fence is awesome. I currently use a Jessem lift which will go to whichever table that doesn’t get the powerlift.

I am curious as to whether anyone has had any problem with this lift. There are so few reviews of this tool I had to pull the trigger on instinct alone. I am mostly worried about “floating”.....some of the older manual lifts that used chain and such had a tendency to be at one height when setting up….but drifting when the router was running with wood going through it. I have not heard of any problems so far but wanted to see what anyone who has one has experienced?

I plan to do a review as soon as I can get a read on how well it performs.

looks cool especially the foot pedal thing.

I have a lift from Jointech it is digital and very smooth – has no chain or belt.
Just one of those things that once you get one – it is hard to justify doing the upgrade $$
