As I have said many times in reviews like this, the quality of your tools is reflected in the finished quality of your work. With that in mind I would like to introduce you to the Mast-R-Lift Router system from our friends at Rockler. The heart of the system is the precision lifting system itself. Crafted with solid incremental adjustments in mind, the tooth belt gearing allows for adjustments that are very fine indeed, and stays where you need it without slipping. The removable top crank handle gives you easy access for quick adjustments without fumbling under the table. The tabletop itself is another example of the high standards we have come to expect from Rockler. Smooth, solid and durable it mates perfectly with the lift. Adjusted to level with the tabletop by 4 screws, allows you to bring the two units into alignment for a smooth surface. Backed with the fence and safety guard which will also accept the rockler dust collection system that brings the whole package together. To hold our table up, we also purchased the legs that bring the table to a comfortable working height. All of these items are purchasable separately so you can adapt them to what ever working layout you have in your shop.
The Mast-R-Lift system was outstanding to work with, the precision adjustments available from the lift bring true versatility to the router table. From the moment I opened the package the unit simply screamed quality and precision. The solid construction speaks of quality and long life. I am certain the Mast-R-Lift will hold up under constant use in our shop.
Although there are defiantly cheaper lift systems available, if you believe like I do, that you get what you pay for, then the Mast-R-Lift system is a good value. Durable, precise, and an addition worthy of any home shop, I value the Mast-R-Lift system as a welcome addition to my shop.
