JESSEM Rout-R-Lift Prestige for Plunge Routers
Finally, a router lift that fits many different routers! An American manufacturer paid attention to the European manufacturing which permanently connects the router motor assembly to the router base.

On the JESSEM Rout-R-Lift, the base of the router mounts directly to the carriage. The router lift is made of aircraft aluminum, and is guaranteed a very precise tool for mounting and adjusting routers. The Rout-R-Lift Prestige allows adjusting the cutting depth quickly and precisely with the included lifting crank. The adjustment and the change of the router bits can be done from the top.

JessEm uses its proven system of five sealed ball bearings on the lift screw and the cam lock; this ensures a smooth, low friction lift. The quarter-turn cam lock is operated from the top using the lift crank to eliminate height drift. 

The router plate made of anodized aluminum. The size is 298mm by 235mm and 9.5mm thick. It is compatible will all JessEm and Incra router tables. Included is a red insert ring made of fiberglass-reinforced polycarbonate with a pre-drilled hole of 51mm in the middle. This can be inserted in the plate with the included key. We recommend ordering rings in other sizes as well to accommodate different router sizes. The router is mounted with the carriage to the ring on the underside of the lift. All screws are included.
