This wiki has been updated 9 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Most router jobs call for precise cuts, but, often, when trying to do everything completely by hand, you tend to stray off the mark a little bit. That's where these lifts come into play. Not only do they help you work with extreme accuracy, so you can get results just like a professional carpenter, but they also make changing bits more convenient. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best router lift on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

October 31, 2018:

When choosing router lifts, we put a priority on finding models that offer accurate height adjustments and stay firmly in place throughout hours of work. We did include one model that some users have experienced slippage with, the Rockler FX, because many people report to having fixed this problem by tightening up a couple of nuts. It is also intended for home DIYers who aren't likely to use it for hours on end.

He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
