Product Details

Faster router bit changes. Precise height adjustment. Dialling in the height against your workpiece. All of these are made possible with the premium router lift.

To route with any degree of precision you need to be sure that your router bit is set at the correct height above the table. This can involve endless amounts of trial and error, 'eyeballing' the height as you reach underneath the table to adjust the router each time. This premium router lift alleviates these issues by allowing you to raise and lower your router from the side of the table, using a precision crank handle. Some router bits, such as the lock mitre joint bit require precise set up in order to achieve good quality results, ensuring that the centre of the bit is aligned with the centre of your workpiece. This premium router lift allows you to make fine height adjustments whilst keeping your workpiece on the table, for perfect alignment with your pre measured mark.

One complete revolution of the handle equates to 1.59mm of height change and adjustments can be made to an accuracy of 0.04mm. Set into the insert plate is a micro-adjustment scale for fine-tuning the height, marked clearly to allow you to make adjustments of 0.04mm at a time. This scale can be zeroed out to establish a baseline for your router bit setup, allowing you to readjust to the same settings confidently every time for repeat cuts. With a large 75mm of travel, changing the router bit is quick and easy without needing to remove the router from the table. The thread tensioning design of the lift body ensures that the router is kept at the correct height without needing to be locked in to place, by maintaining constant tension on the thread.

Sat above the lift is the solid aluminium router insert plate, measuring 298mm x 235mm. With a thickness of 10mm, this plate is strong enough to support the heaviest of router motors and will not sag or bow under load. The insert plate has an opening diameter of 90mm to accommodate the largest of router bits and comes supplied with an insert ring to reduce the opening to 50mm. Insert rings are changed quickly and securely using the supplied insert wrench. The level of the plate is adjusted by turning grub screws located in each corner to ensure that it sits perfectly flush with the router table top.

Constructed with heavy duty guide posts that glide smoothly on the 'sealed for life' bearings and strong brass fittings, offering an effortlessly smooth, judder-free rise and fall movement. Designed for use with the Rutlands R5018 premium router lift motor, or any fixed base router with a diameter of between 104mm and 110mm. This premium router lift mounts directly to the Rutlands R5046 premium router table and Rutlands R5016 premium bench top router table. For all other router tables, simply drill a 10mm diameter hole in the side frame of your table leg stand to accept the shaft bar of the handle. This router lift has a lifetime warranty and in the event that a router lift fails due to a material or manufacturing defect it will be replaced free of charge.

performs exactly as described and has improved my edge joints cause I can adjust it so precisely instead of messing with the plunge mechanism and hoping its the right height

Damon Christensen

Got fed up of constantly dismounting and remounting my half inch router every time I wanted to swap cutter or change height this has saved a lot of hassle and now my router very rarely, if ever, leaves the table. Word of advice screw everything together lightly before tightening otherwise youll overtighten it like I did and the action can become clunky.

Jonas Robinson

lovely smooth motion up and down the thread and I havent had any issues with the router lowering during use, nice sturdy bit of kit clamps the router body very tightly
