Not metal working per se but sometimes a project needs a wooden base.
A low-cost ($10) router lift that uses a 2-ton hydraulic

bottle jack. Since this router model is spring-loaded for plunge cuts,
setting the depth while mounted in the table used to be tedious.

Always wear safety glasses & breathing protection.

Router Lift Jack

A self-adhering Teflon pad is on the jack point.


The jack presses against the router.
This Dewalt router, Model DW621,
has a strongly built motor housing.


The jack lifts the router easily &
precisely to set the depth with a gauge.

The valve & lever are easy to manipulate
by hand. A screw holds the jack in place.

Table Locks
Since the plunge router has a strong spring, the jack
can lift the table a little, so two latches were installed.

The table was drilled & tapped for 10-24 threads to
accept the eye of the latch. The eye has thread lock on

it & a jam nut. The latches quickly lock & unlock for
bit changes. They are located in-line with the bit.

Bit Changing

Bit-changing features are retained.

Note: Remember to unlock the router
itself before lifting & do not over jack.

A 2-tom hydraulic jack can easily break the weakest
points which are by design, the two low-cost side latches.

Saw Gauge

Combination router bit & saw height gauge.


Dewalt DW744 portable table saw.
