Introducing every woodworkers 'must have' product. This great router accessory is the first four post router lift, and the first lift with an interchangeable router mounting plate. With pre-machined hole patterns and fixings for many different routers, now virtually every router type can be adjusted from above the table.
FOUR POST SUPPORT
While most parallel plate style lifts try to support routers from only one side and only two posts, the Woodpecker UniLIFT provides support on both sides of your router with four precision ground and polished steel posts . Many lifts claim to be stable, but when the weight of the whole router is cantilered off only 2 posts movement is inevitable.
The UniLIFT is Absolutely wobble free, with phosphor bronze bearings and four ground posts.
FINE PITCH = PRECISE ADJUSTMENT
The new UniLIFT adjusts the cutter height with 1.60mm per revolution and .05mm per graduation makes precision routing a breeze . No special tools required, the speed crank handle is supplied as standard.
The UniLIFT features two convenient cranking positions giving
The unique router mounting plate design of the UniLIFT now makes it possible to easily interchange different routers. By attaching a separate mounting plate to each router, you can change routers in just a couple of minutes. Fits most plunge routers (see list below, blank plates also available)
The new UniLIFT has 95mm height adjustment range. This is about 25mm more then what most plunge routers have
The new UniLIFT also features a rock solid brake designed to firmly lock the router height position and prevent unwanted height changes. Brake Wrench included,
UniLIFT has a chain drive device offering durable, slip free transmission of the crank handle rotation to the router support.
The UniLIFT is built on a cast, Blanchard ground 235mm x 300mm by 10mm (approx) thick aluminium tool plate. The plate has two spring-loaded temperature compensating ball bearing plungers and eight threaded set screws for levelling. With these easily accessible levelling screws, you won’t have to wrestle underneath the table to level it. Plus, the ball bearing plungers ensure that your router is against the table edge before you begin cutting. They not only position the plate but also eliminate vibration and heat related deformity.
By machining a recess in the underside of the main plate, the effective thickness added to the normal base of your router is 8mm. That’s at least 1.60mm less then competitive plate type lifts. As with any casting, some very minor blemishes may be evident on the plate surface, these will in no way effect the accuracy or use of the UniLIFT.
