Product Details

This router lift and motor are the perfect addition to your workshop to upgrade your routing capabilities. Noticeably improve the quality of your work compared to when using plunge routers mounted to insert plates. This package is far more accurate and precise, and the height of your router bit can be adjusted from the side rather than having to reach under the table to adjust as you would with a plunge router. Purposefully designed to seamlessly work together the combination will fit into a Rutlands, Jessem or homemade router tabletop providing the hole dimensions are 298 x 235mm to accept the lift plate.

The premium 2400W (3 1/4 hp) router motor generates high levels of torque, powerful enough to tackle the toughest hardwoods and end grain. There is a variable speed control dial situated on the bottom of the unit with a wide range of rotational speeds from anywhere between 10,000 to 22,000 rpm. The motor has soft start technology and will safely increase the speed gradually from zero to the desired speed set by the dial. This eliminates any kickback or jerking of the motor body and does not put unnecessary strain on your router lift and table.

Its intelligent electronic speed control system means the motor will adjust to feedback to maintain a constant speed between no-load and load conditions. The premium router motor has been designed to be exceptionally quiet and virtually vibration free. The motor comes fitted with a heavy duty 2 metre cable with a 13 amp, 230V three pin plug. Use in conjunction with the Rutlands R5013 premium router table NVR power switch for the safest possible routing experience. Supplied with 1/4" and 1/2" collets and nuts, and two large off-set wrenches for fast and simple router bit changes.

The premium router lift enables you to smoothly raise and lower the router motor without removing it from the table, allowing you to make precise height adjustments to an accuracy of 0.05mm. By making height adjustments from the side of the table and not above, you can alter the bit height with the workpiece still on the router tabletop. Using a router lift enables you to change your router bit above the table saving a huge amount of time during projects.

The 10mm thick solid aluminium router lift plate features an insert opening of 90mm for accommodating large diameter bits such as raised panel bits, and an included insert ring to reduce the opening to 50mm for smaller diameter bits. Constructed with heavy duty guideposts that glide smoothly on the 'sealed for life' bearings and strong brass fittings the lift raises and lowers your bit up to a maximum 75mm of travel with ease. The height locks firmly in place where a thread tensioning design ensures complete vertical stability, ensuring your router will not move once adjusted. The lift comes with a lifetime warranty and will be replaced if it fails due a material or manufacturing defect.

John Williams

An excellent system. The motor is extremely powerful and the lift allows you to set the bit height to exact dimensions. I used the motor with a large raised field panel bit on tulip wood and the motor ran at a continuous speed leaving a lovely finish on the door panel. My Makita 1/2" router struggles with the same bit and used to slow and burn the surface. The lift is very precise and you can make micro adjustments. Even after a couple of hours of repetitive routing the lift stayed at the same height. Overall delighted with the lift and motor and would fully recommend.

I have been routing for over 20 years using my old favourite the Elu MOF177E router for both free hand and table routing. As I get older I no longer find it comfortable or practical to stoop down below my table to make cutter height adjustments. I decided to buy the router lift and motor package as I felt that a dedicated router motor without side handles and fences would be a better balanced option. The router lift is very solid and well constructed. The plate is made for an aluminium casting, nicely finished and very rigid. The motor purrs and has a very smooth speed build up. I have used a couple of raised field panel cutters to date and the motor had ample torque with no signs of slowing down. The gear mechanism is also smooth, though it took me a couple of attempts to fine tune the movement when I first set it up. My advice is don't over tighten the adjustment screw, leave a small amount of play or the gears will snatch. In summary I wish I had bought a lift years ago. It saves me so much time setting up and make routing more enjoyable. Best buy in a long time.
