Product Details

This is the ultimate router lift and router motor package featuring the R5075 Premium Router Lift and the R5018 Router Motor. This is a truly excellent router lift built with premium quality materials to an exacting standard, it 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 insert plate is made from 10mm thick aluminium, which is hard anodized for an abrasion resistant finish and features a series of perimeter grub screws for levelling to the table surface. To vary the size of the bit aperture the lift is supplied with three glass-filled polycarbonate flush insert rings with centre holes of 10, 32 and 50mm. The insert plate measures 298mm x 235mm and is an exact match for the table openings of the Rutlands Premium Router Tables. For woodworkers who wish to make their own router table the router 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.

The powerful premium 2400 watt (3 1/4 hp) router motor generates high levels of torque, powerful enough to tackle the toughest hardwoods and end grain. Set the correct speed for all diameters of router bit by using the variable speed control dial situated on the bottom of the unit. With a wide range of rotational speeds from anywhere between 10,000 to 20,000 rpm, you can be sure it will make light work of rabbeting, edge moulding, raised panel cutting and anything else you throw at it.

This is a highly impressive package with a premium performance motor and router lift that will make routing easier, faster and more precise. The router lift has a lifetime warranty and in the event that it should fail due to a material or manufacturing defect it or the component will be replaced free of charge.

Just finished assembly of the R15 Router Lift and Motor. Overall my first impressions are very positive. Build quality appears very good.
Lift was delivered in very sturdy packaging. After about 20 minutes i had the router and lift dropped into my router table. I particularly like that they included a flush trim bit to help build your own router table for this lift to drop into.
I am unable to speak to how this lift and motor will hold up over time but my initial few few cuts with the machine were very smooth.
I only have 2 small gripes about this lift and motor. The first is that the zero clearance insert rings are pressed into the plate instead of attached via a bayonet fitting. This means that you will need to reach underneath the table to change out the insert ring. This is only a minor inconvenience but you may want to factor this in if you are building your own table.
Secondly, and this is even a smaller gripe but i would prefer if the router motor wasn't all black. As the speed control is on the head of the motor it can be hard to find if enclosed in a cabinet below your table. I may end up painting the speed control dial to make it easier to locate.
I don't think either of the above issues warrants removal of a star. This is definitely the best router lift i have ever owned

I will keep this simple. If like me, you enjoy routing and want to enjoy routing even more buy this lift and motor. Brilliant.

My new router lift arrived yesterday along with the variable speed motor. My first impressions were very positive, as the lift was packed in a very strong outer box with a 50mm thick foam liner for protection. The lift is 90% pre-assembled. You simply have to insert three machine screws and slide in the motor and lock in place using the crank handle. I already had the Rutlands floor standing router table, fitted with an insert plate rather than the lift. I removed the insert plate and replaced it with the the lift and motor. The fit was excellent and i levelled the top plate to the table with the supplied grub screws and locked the plate in position with the four corner screws. It took about 20 minutes to get the table top perfectly level with the plate of the lift. Raising and lowering the lift is first class. You insert the crank handle that has a 15mm socket on the end, rotate and the the lift moves up or down. My first test was with a 1/2" shank straight bit. I set the bit height to remove 10mm and then ran a 2 metre length of soft wood through the bit to create a groove. The cutting height remain the same from start to finish. I have only had the lift for two days and so far my overall impression is i could not be happier. It is really well made, there is no vibration through the bit and you can change your bits easily from above the table as the router motor collet sits prod of the table top so you can easily get the spanners on.

Duncan Roades

Delighted with this lift. The rise and fall motion is very smooth and when you have set your height the bit does not creep back down when routing. Design is well thought through. There are two adjustment features , one to ensure the router collet sits dead centre in the table hole insert and the other allows you to control the resonance on the main rise and fall spindle, to eliminate any play caused by wear. Build quality is superb and better than I expected. Comes with all the fittings you need to mount in a home made router table. First class and highly recommended.

I was just about to order another brand of lift when Rutlands launched this model. The write up is impressive and the price is very sensible so I bit the bullet and ordered lift and motor package, on the basis I would return it if it did not live up to the review. It arrived within 18 hours after placing the order and I can assure you it is not going back, it's excellent. Beautifully finished castings and machined columns, really smooth rise movement and no wobble or vibration. I tested it out with a lock mitre bit on some left over tulip wood and the cut was really clean. Its so easy to change bits and so easy to set the routing depth. Routing just got a lot more fun.

Owen Crawford

I took a chance and ordered a used demo model to save a few pound. So glad I did the quality of this lift is brilliant, really heavyly built, rise and fall is so smooth a very well engineered piece of equipment.
