Just saw this on instructibles website, smallest shop, looks like a cool and well organized set up for not having allot of space. Love the router lift.

Looks effective. I am just wondering if there are any cooling issues as routers usually have vents in the very place they seem covered in the photo. I have seen many of these before so maybe it isn’t a problem but it might be worth looking into that before trying it out. (signed Killjoy)

I had contemplated this method but didn’t follow up on it for fear of overheating. I love elegantly simple solutions so I won’t rule it out yet. Maybe some time at the scroll saw could ventilate the risers.

It is time for me to build another router table (probably my next project) and have been trying to work out this very issue. I am considering going with somesort of lever device but maybe a jacking method would work well if I made more of a frame around the router to connect to the face plate. This way only the face plate would be connected to the router… I may have to draw on this a little. If I come up with any good ideas (ok I know “good” is relevent) I will post it.
