A combined lift and table top, this is JessEm's premium router table. The lift mechanism uses the same router mounting brackets, substantial spindle and rigid guide rods as the Mast-R-Lift II (our #86N42.30), but instead of operating with a removable crank, is directly driven by an easily accessed handwheel mounted at the right side of the table.
The lift mechanism has a total of six bearings for long life and easy operation even with industrial-sized routers. Special brackets permit the carriage to accept the motor of virtually any fixed-base router. A cam-operated lever lock is conveniently located adjacent to the handwheel, and captures the axle to hold the carriage height setting. To supplement the fence-mounted dust-collection port, a chute with a 4" vacuum port is located beneath the table so that the rotation of the router bit helps carry chips into it.
To ensure easy router carriage travel, the guide rods are mounted into deep sockets that have large-diameter bases, creating a rigid structure that resists racking. The lift positions the router collet above the table surface when fully raised, giving easy access for quick, convenient bit changes. The aperture has a 3-7/8" major and 3-5/8" minor diameter to accept large-diameter bits and JessEm's insert rings. Bearings are double sealed to resist dust infiltration for long life, and the aluminum parts are anodized for corrosion and wear resistance. Includes hex keys for adjustment/router installation, an insert ring with a 2" opening (additional sizes available here), an insert wrench and a pivot pin.
The table top is solid phenolic resin to provide a low-friction surface and dimensional stability, and is a generous size at 3/4" x 24" x 31-7/8" overall. Made in Canada, it has an inset extruded aluminum combination miter groove/T-track that accepts jigs with 3/4" runners and 1/4" hardware for mounting fixtures.
An outstanding heavy-duty lift, it is offered in sets that include a fence, with or without a stand.
The 36" long by 3-5/8" high extruded anodized aluminum fence is straight, rigid and easy to position. It has two laminate sub-fences, a top-mounted metric/Imperial scale, an adjustable bit guard and a 2-1/4" vacuum port. It mounts to a bracket at each end of the table that has an Imperial/metric scale for direct reading relative to the cutter. Tall clamping knobs give ready access for making adjustments. Split for effective dust collection, the laminate sub-fences can also be offset with shim rods for jointing or to eliminate sniping when machining full-thickness profiles.
The 36" tall heavy-gauge powder-coated steel stand has cross-braces for extra tabletop support and levelling feet for uneven surfaces.
For those who want the benefit of a direct-reading display, we offer an optional digital readout for the Mast-R-Lift Excel II. With easy-to-read 5/16" high numerals, it displays in decimal inches to 0.001", fractional inches to 1/32", and metric to 0.1mm. It performs differential measuring without recalibration and can be zeroed at any point. Accurate to ±0.002"/0.05mm. An easy retrofit, the sensor simply mounts to the router carriage, and the readout attaches to the table with machined aluminum mounting brackets.

All installation hardware supplied. Operates on two AAA batteries (not included).
