Back in the day, you had to remove your router from the table to change bits, and
fine adjustments required twisting the tool while under the table. Later, lifts were
raised or lowered to gain access to the collet and dial in the needed height via a
ratcheting system from above.

Some time back, Woodpeckers delivered a router lift that allowed quick elevation
adjustments and a way to fine-tune settings with a thumb-turned wheel, but
to the company that wasn’t good enough. Today there’s a new lift from the team at
Woodpeckers. It’s called the Side Winder Router Lift.
