How To Build A Router Lift – As I became more and more interested in woodworking, I wanted a nice router table and more lift. When I saw that commercial router lifts cost over $300 and Matthais Wandel of Woodgears.ca had uploaded plans for his new kip router lift, I decided to give it a go. A router lift uses a threaded rod with a torque nut to lift the router along a pair of rails. Attached to the thread rod are two gears that control the height. A button locks the router securely. Like that:

In addition to lifting vertically, the router lift also tilts on a pair of hinges. This maximizes the use of standard ferrules, saving money and setting time.

Rather than build a separate cabinet for the router lift, I built a new wing for my table saw. 2×4 shiplap rails hold a piece of phenolic plywood. The 2x4s are secured with a table saw through a few bolts across the hour rails.

All in all, this was a really fun build that helped me hone my table saw skills while creating a useful new tool.

Instead I drilled a hole in the center end square and welded in a 1/4″ allen bolt. So now I can use a hex shank tool to lift it faster or slower and wait for my round insert to install on top.

Great job, nice to see someone else making one like this. I built mine a few months ago and it costs nothing. That’s great, a friend of mine bought a nice new one and paid $300+ for it, he saw mine and said he wished the one you made came with me when I made it. I can’t see paying that kind of money if I only use it once. When I buy a tool, I feel like I should get my money back. I don’t think it’s cheap, but I’d like to build it myself if possible.

What release is ShopNotes in? Are the plans flexible enough to accommodate the P-C 7518 router?

Good work! Can you provide the cost of your elevator materials? Interestingly, Rockler has its Lift FX on sale for January, $159 and $169 online. I suspect your materials are less than half the cost of the Rockler lift.

I’m going to do one of these router lifts, but I can’t find my ShopNotes number (#121), but it might show up eventually. Everything else I have…I hope to do it as soon as possible.

It’s great! I was thinking of doing the same to my Makita 3612BR. Does this plan need to be modified to fit my router?

This is an old thread, you don’t get a reply and please resurrect an old thread. Please consider creating a new thread. Although the real solution for a router table involves a lift kit, it probably doesn’t make sense to spend $200 to wire up my nice Dewalt router for infrequent use. Router for $40, and Amazon got me a Rousseau router baseplate for $39. All that was left was to turn on my router in the cheap elevator. The only visible damage I have on the router is two small holes (1/16) drilled in the motor assembly near the depth stop.

It’s not as robust as a lift kit with a professional-grade router, but can be put together for less than $100 (from $70. One reviewer noted that HF ​​sells a similar plate for about $20 + $7 S&H.)

The Punge router’s motor (and bit) compresses onto its base with precision height adjustments to replace this primitive, fixed height adjustment device. Instead of adjusting the height to prevent compression of the nut, we use it to launch the motor up like a normal lift system.

To do this, we replace the bottom stop with this mechanism, essentially the bolt that holds the motor to the base to compress. “Elevator” consists of the following:

A t-nut anchors to the motor housing, an approximately 8″ 1/4-20 threaded rod, a 1/4-20 coupler and a “connector bolt” (not visible under the coupler) through the bottom leg.

Total parts needed: 1/4-20 x 40mm (1.5″) connector bolt ($3.50 for 4 in Lowe’s furniture parts drawer), 8″ of threaded 1/4-20 threaded rod, 1 T-nut ($0.70) and 1/4-20 coupler ($0.85 each)

Remove the depth adjustment rod to disassemble the router. Mark the other side of the depth adjustment socket to drill a 1/4″ hole for the connecting bolt.

(It may be easier to drill up and down through the socket. Start small enough to fit the socket and make a divot at the bottom, then drill the base again through the 1/4″ bit. )

Countersink that side of the hole (visible where the drill bit is) to match the shoulder of the connecting bolt.

Place the base of the router on the bottom of the plate and mark the plate through the hole we drilled.

Once marked, remove the base of the router and use a small (1/8″) drill bit to drill a hole through the plate (bottom to top) at the mark.

Using the hole as the center, use a forstner bit to create a clearance pocket deep enough for the connector bolts.

Press on the plate, drill a 1/8″ pilot hole wide enough to run the Allen wrench through the plate and top of the connecting bolt.

With the base still detached, attach the T-nut to the motor flange. (I drilled two 1/16 holes and drove two brass nails through the t-nut flange and motor flange. JB Weld works the same.

Reassemble the base onto the motor* using the threaded rod through the T-nut to compress the motor into the base. (*Replace only the punch spring in the tube
