I saw a video of someone using a car jack as a router lift so that gave me the idea to make one for my HF Router table. I am fairly new to this site, and just this morning, I saw a post of almost the exact same setup. I guess I am not the only redneck in the woods! :-)
I made it out of stuff I had laying around the garage including some all thread for the handle, 1/2 inch melamine scrap for the hand wheel and a piece of 5/8 inch aluminum bar stock left over from a previous project (remote camera mount). I also drilled four holes in the base and screwed the jack to the plywood, so it won’t fall on my foot when I move the router table off the work table. :-)
Here is a link to a photobucket slide show I made of all of my pics.
