    I was able to mount my Ryobi R-600 to a table and used a piece of 3/8-16 all thread, a coupling nut, a hex cap screw and a t-nut for the lift. All that replaced the adjustment knob, shaft, etc.
    Works a treat.

    I don't have any info on this subject; I have 2 Bosch routers that have acces through the plate, for a hex wrench that lifts the router. It seems to work real well.
    Good luck with your project.

    I jut used an old scissor jack from a trailer. It works very well. It was cheap and on hand. I just turn the handle a little bit and it will raise the router and opposite direction takes it down. I have a flat board bolted to the Jack so it goes up against the bottom of the router. It takes up very little room in my cabinet. It works on every router I have. To make sure it stays in place, I use different diameters of PVC pipe. I drilled two hole in the PVC, place nut on the inside and the outside of the pipe that will screw against the router. This way nothing can move while working. This works like a st screw To Change up or down, yes I have to undo the bolts, 30 seconds or less. Works very well.I thin because of the jack I actually have more adjustments than a lot of store bought lifts.
