Router lift in home made table top
« on: March 07, 2018, 11:42 PM »
I am building a workbench and in order to save space in my one-car workshop, I want to get rid of the Bosch table top router table and instead, want to incorporate the router (Bosch 1617) into the workbench. Was thinking of a 3/4" MDF top in a maple frame. Most of the surface will have the 20mm holes (as in the MFT), with a router lift added on one end. For the lift, I am considering the Woodpeckers Precision Router Lift V2 or the Jessem Mast-R-Lift II. So the plan is to simply cut out the top to allow the lift face plate to fit in. Is there any problem with this plan? Will I run into difficulties when trying to secure the lift into the top? Has anyone done this, or do you have any suggestions? Many thanks.
