Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows who makes a router lift that would fit my Fein RT1800 plunge router. I have seen the Woodpecker Unilift but I am unable to find them for sale. I emailed Woodpecker twice but have not received an answer back. Does anyone know if this model is still being made and if not I could sure use some direction to who might make them. I appreciate any help. Sincerely, Flyboy

Did you call them? I’ve always been able to get through on weekdays. Did you look at the JessEm Mast-R-Lift. I believe it is universal (uses collars). I’ve never used one (I have the Woodpecker Unilift), so I couldn’t say how good/bad they are. Good luck.

I have not tried to call. I will do that on Monday and I will take a look at the JessEm. How do you like the Unilft BillyJ. I appreciate the response.

I think is was awesome. I say “was,” in that the current lifts that are available blow just about everything away. Because my router table is not used every day, I can say it cost a lot of money. Of course that is a relative word – when you need it, and have it, the cost is nothing.

I’m looking to upgrade my lift. I want to install a side-lift crank, along with a digital readout. Anything that will make life easier, I’m all for it. Although I would really like a power lift; the use of my table is sporadic.

Woodpecker makes very good equipment. I doubt you’ll be sorry purchasing anything from them.

Well I am finally giving up. I spoke with both Woodpecker and JessEm only to be told that neither sell a lift for this router and they do not carry pre-drilled router plates either. I will keep checking sale sites and if anyone knows of a Unilift for sale please let me know. Now it’s time to go back to the shop and finish machining more new pulleys for the jointer and table saw. Hope everyone has a great day. Flyboy
