Comments about Rout-R-Lift with Deluxe Fence:
This is a nice router lift. If your wondering if your router will mount in this lift go to either Powermatic or Jet's website and download the instructions. In the back of the instruction booklet it shows over 25 different routers that the plate for lift is drilled for. My Porter-Cable 890 series router fit perfectly, even though it's not one of the routers listed. I emailed Porter-Cable and as I suspected the 890 series routers have the same screw patter as the 690 series, and the PC 690 is listed in the book. It's fairly straight forward to mount your router in this lift. The only drawback is once installed it's pretty much dedicated to this lift and would take about 1/2 hr to swap out. I'm considering getting a Porter-Cable 7518, 5 speed router for this lift to replace the 890 series router I currently have installed in it. The 890 series routers are 2 1/4hp routers and the 7518 (5 spd) is 3 1/4 hp. That would free up my 890 in order to use it as a plunge or fixed based router, since it came in a kit with both bases. What I want to use this lift/router combo for is to make kitchen cabinet doors. The router bits used for making the stiles/rails typically must be a minimum 2 1/4 hp router. It is a nice lift. I purchased the Powermatic because it was less money yet the same lift as the Jet Xacta lift. I also purchased the extension leaf for my Jet table saw (27" x 16") that this lift fits in. It saves shop space which is at a premium for me, since my shop is on my lower level of the house in a 10'x 8' room.

Q:What size routers will fit in this table. I can not find that information anywhere.
A:3-5/8" table opening accommodates larger router bits, It has two 3/4" solid steel shafts that add rigidity to the router bit cutting at the desired depth,
A:If you go to Powermatic's website and search for this lift by the part number it should take you to this router lift. On that page down the left side should be the "manual" for this lift. This lift looks to be exactly like the "Jet" lift, it just has "Powermatic" on it. I researched this and found the manual for the "Jet" lift and it shows the different routers and the screw patterns for the bottom plate on the routers. I know this will accept Porter-Cable 690/890 series routers. I don't know what router you have but if you go to either Powermatic or Jet's website you should be able to find that information.
