Bought a new router table top and FX lift. Did not want to break up my DW618 B3 kit.

I just bought a router table and router lift package, and I have enough routers and bases already. So I wanted just the router motor alone.

I picked this item because I already have a DW618 router with a fixed and plunge base and now I am wanting to convert my router table to a micro adjustable insert. I didn't need any more bases. Rockler tech staff found this part for me. Very good service.

Because it matches my portable router system

Cost and weight of this tool was better suited to my needs than a larger heavy router.

With only one wrench and a spindle lock, and using a router lift, how can you make bit changes from above the table?
leslie n on Aug 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: buy the special wrenches for DEWALT routers. They work well. I bought them and am glad I did.
Is this motor 3 1/2in.? I just picked up a Jessem Lift and am currently using the motor out of my 618, I would like a motor to dedicate to the table. Thanks in advance for your help.
Michael B on Nov 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. This motor is a 618 dewalt router, just without the base. I bought mine for use in a rockler fx router table lift and it works very well.
This router can work with 220v or only 120v ?, because here in chile (southamerica) we have 220v
Dimitri L on Aug 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It runs on 120vac 60htz. You would have to use a transformer to hook it up. I also think that in chile they provide 50htz. That would change the performance.
I like to know the Weight of motor.
Peter on Feb 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I installed my router motor in my table shortly after purchase so i really can't answer.
Will this fit in my Shark CNC router table?
Scott B on Nov 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, Scott. I bought the DW618 for my new routr table and FX Lift. You might ask the SHARK CNC manufacturer. They should be able to answer your question.
Will this fit Rockler Lift LX?
David S on Aug 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes the DeWalt 618 makes the list for the FX lift
