JessEm - Router Lift - Rout-R-Lift Prestige - Metric

Regular price £315.95 Sale price

RRP £349.95


JessEm - Router Lift - Rout-R-Lift Prestige - Metric - the premium metric router lift set within a 9.5mm aluminium plate, that fits European hand held routers.

The direct drive rise and fall mechanism works via a metric screw and gives endless years of accurate and reliable service, without the issues associated with poorer quality belt or chain driven drives that tend to clog, work loose and snap over time.

Make life easier! No more scrambling under the table trying to push your router up - all our American-style router lifts allow for height adjustment of the router from above the table.

A robust cranked handle operates the double bearing spindle from above the table with great precision and ease. The effortless and positive winding action is measured by the metric scale built into the router plate’s surface giving very accurate incremental calibration of the rise before ultimately using the same cranked handle to lock off the mechanism. Both the height adjustment and locking mechanism are located on the front edge of the router lift plate, meaning you won’t have the hassle of having to move your router fence to make adjustments when in use. The built in spindle height lock ensures no height loss or movement whilst the router is in use.

The 9.5mm thick-cast, precision ground and anodized black solid aluminium top plate is very strong and flat and will not flex or bend in use. The plate measures 235mm x 298mm and will accommodate large diameter cutters up to 92mm and can be reduced down to 51mm using the glass filled poly-carbonate insert ring included (other ring sets are available). All JessEm plates come with their own levelling system allowing for perfect alignment and levelling and fit our own JessEm and INCRA table tops or use our router insert plate template for home-made tables for a perfect fit.

Fitting your router to the lift is very quick and simple; the lift has a low profile plate pre-drilled for the most popular routers on the market. Place your router on the plate, match your fixing holes and screw it in place. Raise your router to its maximum plunge and lock it off, the Prestige will now do all the height movement for you in one easy and accurate movement. If you have a router that is not catered for within the pre-drilled plate list then a undrilled plate version is available.

The router plate and fixing plate are low profile but to make your original router even better you can use it with our Xtreme Xtension, for above the table cutter changes. Please note that the fixing screws are individual to your router are available from the manufacturer, and should have been supplied originally.

    New router lift

    I am still building my new table to put the lift in so I am unable to coment on It’s performance On appearance It seems a well made item.

    Great Expectations

    I am still waiting for delivery.

    The most important tool in the shop!

    A good router is one of the most important and flexible tools in the shop. So having a good router table is essential IMO. I bought the JessEm router lift prestige to mount my trusty Dewalt DW625. The lift is very well engineered with a smooth and very accurate adjustment via the above table crank handle. I mounted the lift in the JessEm phenolic table (rather extravagant but I wanted to crack on with projects rather than spend my limited time making a table) which made the whole setup process less than an hour from unboxing to routing.

    The only issue I had was the loss of around an inch of depth meant some of my router bits didn't have enough shaft length to be mounted properly. I spoke with Jim of Woodworkers workshop and he suggested the Router raizer or Musclechuck. After doing some research on YouTube and woodworking forums I opted for the Musclechuck. It gives me back half inch of lost depth and I can now quickly change bits from above the table without using any spanners. A win-win!

    Best router lift ever?

    I have fitted this lift to my new Woodpeckers table, and mounted a trusty Elu MOF177E router. Mounting the router and centering it on the opening in the lift was very straightforward, as was fitting the lift to the table and levelling it. The result was a silky smooth vertical movement with no apparent backlash that enables extremely accurate height adjustment. Although the router lift has a lock on the height control, I haven't needed to use it yet as the lift maintains height adjustment. The winding handle is much more substantial and easier to use than on similar lifts, and the whole assembly just oozes quality. Wish I'd bought it ages ago - and I always thought that my old router lift was good, too!. CHRIS
