Topic tags/keywords: question router

About a year ago I was interested in this unit and someone said there was a problem because the height stop was mechanical rather than electronic. Most of the information I have see on the device is dated except for the video which seems to push the idea of the mechanical stop.

Has anyone bought one, and what do you have to say about it?

Jack:

Send a message to John Nixon here in LumberJocks. He was the one who worked with MLCS to design this router. He can give you the scoop.

What I’ve read states that is a Micro switch that stops the router from lifting.

I would take that to me that is is a mechanical set but it shuts off the router from going up electrically.

I would rather see that you could do that via the electric panel. It might require that you set the router to the highest you want it to travel. Then take the router base out of the table and move the micro switch to the appropriate spot.
