FULL DESCRIPTION
This router lift is designed for use with plunge routers and has been meticulously engineered to ensure precise, ultra smooth raising and lowering of the router bit from above the table. The height adjustment is controlled by inserting and rotating a crank handle, making adjustment fast, simple and extremely precise. The main drive spindle is precision machined with a fine-pitch metric thread that allows you to tune-in the height of the router bit to a resolution of 0.025mm, with one full revolution giving 2mm of movement. To lock off the height you simply insert the handle into the locking mechanism hole and rotate clockwise.

The carriage of the lift travels on three steel guide posts, that are housed within sealed linear bearings to resist dust infiltration resulting in an ultra smooth rise and fall movement, with no side play. To mount your router, simply remove the router's sub-base and use it as a template to align and drill the 185mm diameter aluminium mounting plate. The insert plate is made from 10mm anodized aluminium which has an abrasion resistant finish and features a levelling system to ensure a flush fit to the table surface.

The insert plate has a 90mm aperture and is supplied with two polycarbonate flush insert rings with centre holes of 50mm and 35mm. The insert plate measures 298mm x 235mm and is engineered for the table openings of all of the Rutlands® router tables. This is premium performance plunge router lift that will make routing easier, faster and more precise. ©

Received well packaged & in good time

Received well packaged & in good time. Fairly easy to setup & install, as all the necessary aids are provided for centralising the router. I drilled and countersunk mounting holes using my pillar drill to ensure accuracy and once mounted found the operation to be very smooth. The spindle locking mechanism works positively & gives piece of mind whlist routing. The scale on the top of the plate is a nice touch & has come in handy for fence setup already. 5 stars.

So much easier to use

So much easier to use than the old method of winding the height knob on the router from underneath the worktop! If you already have a plunge router and want to make your own router table then this is a no brainer. The lift mechanism feels very good to use and is just sensitive enough to dial in very minute adjustments.

A beautifully engineered lift

I've waited a while for a better solution for mounting my plunge router to my Rutlands table. Mounting to an insert plate is okay, but much time is spent adjusting the height from below and referring back to the top to keep checking the height - less than ideal. Thankfully Rutlands have recognised this, and produced a beautifully engineered lift which allows me to finally set the height from above. Bravo.

Like the previous reviewer said this is a well engineered lift. I have been using mine now for the past 2 weeks and can't find fault. Mounting my redundant Hitachi router took me less than an hour, using the existing fixing screws from base of the router. Even with the heavy Hitachi the lift moves really smoothly up and down.

I have built this lift into my shop made router table and it has made routing projects some much faster and easier. You can precisely dial-in your bit height by rotating the crank handle and then locking it off, to prevent creepage. I have attached my big Makita router to the lift, leaving my Festool free for hand routing. The lift is very well engineered and rises and lowers very smoothly. I assume i will have to brush down the threaded arm after heavy use. Really impressed and please. Arrived next day as well.
