JessEm Rout-R-Lift Prestige (Metric)

by JessEm

JessEm Rout-R-Lift Prestige is a 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 anodised 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.

Just What I needed

This JessEm router lift has saved me so much time and trouble
My Makita router fits perfectly well although operating the router shaft lock button is a little fiddly which is not surprising in such a small space.
The router lift has been very well manufactured using good quality materials.
The cranking hand is a joy to use, I do not feel frustrated when adjust the bit height, ,the lift mechanism is just sensitive enough with a definite locking
I am now looking to buy one to suit my Trend router

JessEm router lift

I’ve had a couple of router tables and the problems are they are generic so installing the router is a pain and you never get it central but mostly, changing bits are so awkward and time consuming that you just don’t use it, this lift plate takes that all away it’s superb build quality and ease of use makes it a pleasure to use
Sure it’s expensive but how often will you replace it ?
Make sure you buy the template if you want a perfect fit if going into a wooden worktop

A Gem in your Workshop

After reviewing a few router lifts in the market, I found out that the Router Lift Prestige (Metric) is one of best router lifts in the market, and it fits my Makita RP 2300 Router.
I think the lift is very well designed and accurate. It`s very enjoyable and satisfying working with high quality tools such as the jessem router lift. I would like to thank the wood workers workshop team, helping me out with this purchase. Ventura
