In 1999, JessEm Tool invented the Rout-R-Lift. This innovation created a whole new category for the woodworker and in November 2009 was credited in an article by Wood Magazine as one of the top 25 innovations in Woodworking in the past 25 years. This was a very flattering compliment to our efforts and reinforces to us why we need to ensure we continue to build the best Lifts on the market. The influx of router lift's currently for sale by many other manufacturers has spurred us to drop the gauntlet and create a Lift that every woodworker can afford. The October issue of 2016 of Wood Magazine, awarded the Rout-R-Lift II the top value for their Tool Test on Rout-R-LIfts.
The Rout-R-Lift II has all the same great features as our Mast-R-Lift II but at a price we know you will appreciate. This lift is made out of aluminum with a phenolic top plate. The Rout-R-Lift II comes in 5 different styles depending on the router and router diameter you plan to use. Please verify which router you plan to use before purchasing one of these lifts.
DOUBLE SEALED BALL BEARING CONSTRUCTION
We wanted our Rout-R-Lift II to be as smooth as our new Mast-R-Lift II while raising and lowering your Lift. We decided to add a double sealed bearing to the spindle making it very smooth. This provides a lifetime of use for your Lift and even with the router installed your Lift can be raised and lowered with one finger.
BEARING THE TENSION OF THE LIFT
The shafts on the Rout-R-Lift II, like all our Router Lifts, are pressed into a shaft mount with hydraulic pressure. We do not just thread our shafts to the top plate. The owner of JessEm spent many years as a Tool and Die maker before founding our company, and cutting corners was not an option. By pressing the shafts into a larger diameter mount we are able to attach the shafts to the top plate and fasten in place with more than one screw spreading the lateral load and providing a very rigid and durable mount that will withstand the toughest routing operations.
NO BENT WRENCHES
Like our current Mast-R-Lift II, bit changes above the table was a must for all routers that work with this lift without the need for special bent wrenches.
All the machined components on the Rout-R-Lift II are machined on one of our CNC mills here in our Oro-Medonte, Ontario, Canada location.
WHAT YOU GET
The Rout-R-Lift II comes with a 2” insert ring to reduce the size of the bit opening in the plate and the opening is large enough to accommodate a 3-1/2” diameter bit without an insert installed. Our Lifts and Plates all feature our Tab-Loc™ design insert rings which are another JessEm innovation that is common on many other manufacturers’ products today.
We invented the Lift because we too are woodworkers. Adjusting a router in a table mounted operation was very difficult to do accurately before the first Router Lift in 1999. Now we have developed a Lift with features, built in accuracy and ease of use that we would want ourselves and at a cost that every woodworker can afford. The Rout-R-Lift II is a precision piece of engineering that you will be proud to own and find use whenever you are in your work shop.
