INCRA Router Lifts

Router lifts allows easy and comfortable adjustment of your router from the above, using a hand crank rather than the often imprecise and hard to reach adjusters on the equipment below. Router lifts can be used on any router table, even homemade, as long as the suitable slot is cut with our routing table router template. The following router lifts fit on any JessEm and Incra router table.

Note: These router lifts are made for the American Market! It is hard to find a router in Europe that fits these router lifts because European type routers are plunge routers where you cannot separate the motor from the base.
INCRA JessEm Mast-R-Lift II
INCRA and JessEm Tool, the respected leader in Router Lift innovation, teamed up to bring you this INCRA JessEm Mast-R-Lift II. Precision machined from cast and blanchard ground aircraft grade aluminum, this is the top of the line for JessEm's lift systems.

The Mast-R-Lift II allows fast, incredibly precise height adjustments conveniently made from above the table, and it also provides you with the ability to change router bits from above.

This new model uses an exclusive system with a total of 5 sealed ball bearings on the lift screw and cam lock, making it the smoothest, lowest-friction router lift ever used! The quarter-turn cam lock is operated from the top using the lift crank to eliminate height drift.

The standard 9-1/4 inch (235 mm) x 11-3/4 inch (298.5 mm) plate size fits most existing router table designs and features the exclusive INCRA Magna Lock magnetic throat plate system. Magna Lock throat plates can be removed or added without any special tools. Simply drop any plate into the keyed recess and the Magna Lock plate snaps smartly into place, and is held securely by 4 high energy rare earth magnets. A perfect flush alignment with the surrounding lift surface is guaranteed.

Features:
Exclusive INCRA MagnaLOCK reducing ring system for instant ring changes & perfect ring fit
Includes 5 steel reducing rings - 3/8", 1", 1-5/8", 2-5/8", 3-5/8" = (9.5 mm, 25.4 mm, 41 mm, 67 mm, 92 mm)
Change router bits from the top of the table
Quickly make super precise, 0.001 inch height adjustments from above
Exclusive ball bearing mechanism for super smooth action & low friction Ultra-responsive, direct drive 16TPI lift screw mechanism
Patented thread tensioning system eliminates vertical lash in the lift mechanism
Blanchard-ground cast aluminum top plate is hard-anodized for durability
Corner-mounted cam screw ensures a snug fit in the router table
9-1/4" x 11-3/4" x 3/8” plate size is compatible with all INCRA Router Tables and fits some other brands

INCRA Mast-R-Lift II Compatibility:
Also improved on the Mast-R-Lift II: the new carriage design accommodates a wide variety of routers without the need for adaptors. The four aluminium clamping blocks are simply repositioned on the carriage plate when changing from one model of router to the other.

INCRA PRL-V2 Router Lift
INCRA has teamed up with Woodpeckers, Inc. to introduce a custom version of Woodpecker’s innovative Precision Router Lift V2 (PRL-V2).

The concept is like nothing else: To raise or lower the router quickly, the quick lifting tool disengages the lift’s mechanism and the spring assist allows the heaviest routers to travel freely with very light effort and no cranking. The router’s collet can be raised above the table for bit changes in two seconds!

The quick adjuster provides the speed, and the tool-free micro adjust provides the finesse. After the router bit height is in the ballpark, no tools are necessary for fine tuning. A large thumbwheel embedded in the lift’s top plate is instantly accessible for micro adjusting anywhere within a 3/8” (9.5 mm) range of travel. The travel indicator dial is graduated every .002” (0.05 mm) and can be reset to zero. A carriage brake is also available right next to the micro adjust thumbwheel for locking the carriage during extended cutting.

The PRL-V2’s top plate is a super flat Blanchard-ground casting that’s machined to accept INCRA’S unique MagnaLOCK reducing ring system. The laser-cut steel rings are securely held in with powerful rare earth magnets for super fast ring changes, and a simple leveling system guarantees that the rings will snap in absolutely flush with the surrounding plate. The MagnaLOCK system is simply the most convenient, best performing reducing ring style available. Includes five reducing rings for great variety right out of the box: 3/8", 1", 1-5/8", 2-5/8", & 3-5/8” (9.5 mm, 25.4 mm, 41 mm, 67 mm, 92 mm).
Plate size: 9-1/4" (235 mm) x 11-3/4" (298.5 mm).
