This is a premium performance router lift and router motor package featuring the R5075 Router Lift and the R5018 Router Motor.

Router Lift - R15
Built with premium quality materials to an exacting standard, the lift has been meticulously engineered to ensure precise, ultra smooth raising and lowering of the router bit. The height adjustment is controlled from above the table by inserting and rotating the removable crank handle, making adjustment fast, simple and extremely precise. The lift positions the router collet above the table surface when fully raised to allow for easy access and quick bit changes.

The main drive spindle is precision CNC machined and features a fine pitch thread that allows you to tune-in the height of the router bit to a resolution of 0.025mm. Once the router bit is set to the cutting height, a special spindle-locking mechanism prevents the height setting from changing due to vibration. The carriage of the lift travels on two steel guide posts, that are housed within double-sealed linear bearings to resist dust infiltration resulting in an ultra smooth rise and fall movement, with no side play. The carriage is made from four CNC machined steel plates and incorporates a cam lock, that is adjusted using the crank handle to rigidly secure the router motor in position.

The top insert plate is made from 10mm anodized aluminium for abrasion resistant finish and features a series of adjustment screws for levelling to the table surface. To vary the size of the bit aperture the lift is supplied with three polycarbonate flush insert rings with centre holes of 10mm, 32mm and 50mm. The insert plate measures 298mm x 235mm and is engineered for the table openings of all of the Rutlands® premium router tables. The lift comes supplied with all the hardware and fittings required to mount into a bespoke table, including insert plate template, 32mm flush-cut router bit, four corner levellers, micro adjustment and fixing screws. This is a highly impressive, premium performance router lift that will make routing easier, faster and more precise.

Router Lift Motor
This powerful, 2400W variable speed motor premium performance motor is designed and engineered specifically for use with router lifts and uses the latest electronic technology. It features a torque control system that prevents the motor from slowing under load, ensuring that the rotational speed remains constant, no matter what diameter of router bit you are using or how hard the wood, resulting in a superior workpiece finish.

A variable speed control dial, conveniently positioned on the bottom of the motor for easy-reach, allows you to select speeds from 10,000 to 22,000 rpm. With soft start technology, the router motor gradually increases the speed from zero to the desired level for a safer, more enjoyable routing experience. An air cool system ensures a constant flow of fresh air to prevent the risk of the motor overheating, when installed in the Rutlands® dust box or in a close-sided router table. The dust protection system prevents dust from causing damage to the motor to ensure a long trouble-free life and the precision machined spindle bearings are guaranteed for ultra smooth, vibration free rotation.

The two ER collets 1/4" and 1/2" are precision machined to ensure perfect balance and concentricity and the large off-set wrenches allow for fast bit change over. Optional 6mm, 8mm and 12mm metric collets are available. ©.

Router lift and motor

looks a very good piece of kit at a discount price very impressed.
can't wait to build the cabinet for it.

Excellent piece of kit for the price!

This is my first ever router lift, purchased to replace a Kreg plate in a Kreg router table, this unit fitted perfectly, I had the replace the Kreg plate supports as the fixings didn’t line up.

This unit is very heavy and sturdy, the lift mechanism is very smooth with a built in adjustable friction grub ****.

The router unit is very quiet compared to my makita and Dewalt palm routers. The ER20 collet system make quick work of bit size changes as the collect just snaps out at an angle.
It also adjusts from circa 10,000 - 27,000rpm from memory however there is no markings on the dial, so makes speed adjustments a little random.

I also like the way O can now change bits without having to remove my pan router as per my previous setup, the lift is definitely an investment and will make work easier.

My only criticism at present is that there doesn’t appear to be any plate inserts available as extras, the ones on the Rutland site are for a different unit which push down and twist round, however this units inserts as just push down.

Router lift and motor

I have been thinking about this router lift for some time to upgrade from the usual Chinese aluminium plate and adapted plunge router. I am not disappointed, this is far superior, smooth lift with a lot of range in the lift. Easy to install with all the parts you need, including template and flush trim bit. The Motor us powerful and smooth running. Bits are easy to change with the supplied tools. I am really impressed with the quality of this kit, it is very sturdy and rugged. I would recommend this whole heartedly.

Excellent piece of kit

After fighting with a cheap lift, I decided to take advantage of the black Friday reduction.
Kit contains everything that is needed to fit it to my homemade table.
This is lovely to use and feels well made.
Thoroughly recommended.

What an awesome bit of kit

I’d been looking at routers, router lifts, motors, tables, build or buy and had come across the Rutlands options previously, when they sent an email with the latest offer I jumped at it.

I had a bit of an issue with the delivery, which customer services were immediately in hand to assist (courier issue not Rutlands), but when I received it I opened it up and wasn’t expecting such a high end, well built, robust unit as this. What an awesome bit of kit.
