Topic tags/keywords: jessem router lift first router lift darrin smith

I was very pleased to find out today, the very first router lift was designed and patented by a fellow Newfoundlander. Darrin Smith of Central Newfoundland in 1999 created the first (unless there were others that had something rigged up on their own) Router Lift.

Darrin Smith is the President of JessEm Tools. :) That is a neat tidbit :)

They certainly do Eddie. I was very impressed when I found out JessEm was Canadian, and even more so when the inventor/president was a Newfie ….. They have other products as well. If you would like to cut spotless mortises with a drill, watch this video. We are ordering one :)
