Routers perform a lot of work in the shop, but handheld routers are only part of the story. You can perform even more operations if you table-mount your router – but that setup is not beneficial if you have to remove the tool for bit changes, and height adjustments are not always easily made. A good router lift is the answer.

Woodpeckers’ PRL-V2 (Precision Router Lift-V2) is a United States-made lift (designed for a Porter-Cable 7518 router, but adaptable to several router motors) that’s built with the end-user in mind. There are two small adjustable side plungers that provide a perfect fit to the table opening, even if your routing abilities are suspect.
