As far as I am concerned, the best is the Woodpecker Quicklift. I’ve used it for about 2 years now and love it!

Whatever Rockler offers is somebody else’s rebranded lift. Find out who supplies it and go to the source. You’ll pay less for the same thing.

I would also vote for one of the Woodpeckers lifts. The QuickLift is very cool but I ahve reviews of a few of the Woodpeckers lifts at the link below that shows their features more closely if that would help. Wodpeckers makes very good stuff so I would not fear buying anything from them.

See the Lift Reviews

I have an old Bench Dog and I love it. It is very heavy and solidly constructed. I also just came from a woodworking show with my brother. We examined the Woodpecker Quicklift and he ended up buying one. It looked very good.
