Router Raizer

There's never been an easier or safer way to get quick depth-of-cut adjustments with your plunge router. The Router Raizer lets you work from both the topside and underside of your router table. With the Router Raizer no special insert is required (or included) - use any router plate from 3/16" to 1/2" thick will do the trick! Height adjustments are made with a speed wrench that fits through a small hole drilled through your insert plate. When hand-held, adjustments are made from the top with a knurled adjustment knob that also works with the speed wrench. Router Raizer includes all the necessary components, instructions, and templates you need to turn your plunge router into an easily adjustable Router Raizer. Slight modification to your router is required, but well worth the effort.

If You Know How.....
An old saying I came across years ago: "If you don't know how it's simple awful. If you know how it's awfully simple." This applies to the Router Raizer. Spend time with the instructions. Read them twice if need be. The actual assembly of the Router Raizer is simple if you follow the instructions provided. The tool is a very nice lift. I found I understood the functions of my PC 690 Plunge Router a bit better by installing the Router Raizer. It works great on my Kreg router table and should be fine for any good table. I like how my accuracy in setting has improved. Would buy again!

Great product - Great Price
It took a little over 2 hrs. to complete the set up, but was well worth it. It is about half the cost of other router raisers. I couldn't be more pleased.

Very impressed.
I set this up on a Bosch table with folding legs,fence, inserts etc. Bosch messed up when they discontinued this table. I purchased mine a number of years ago. The router I am using on the table is a Ryobi 600 that I picked up in a pawn shop for $30, complete, unused and with all accessories.The one thing I did differently was to make my own template from a scrap of clear plastic. That makes it easy to line up and drill the mounting plate. For a price of $104 the lift has exceeded my expectations. I may buy one more to set up my Porter Cable on another table.

I bought this lift a few months ago. It was fairly easy to set up. I'm so impressed with it that I plan to buy another for a second table. It's easy to assemble and works great. I did add an extension to make it easier to change bits above the table.

Very easy to installed took about a 1 hour. Works great! price is right! Great product!

Like other reviewers, it took a couple hours to install but I'm amazed at how well it works. At one point I had parts laying all over the place and panic began to creep in, but it's pretty hard to mess things up. It seems like plunge routers ought to come out of the box with this type of setup, but that might just render the more expensive lift systems obsolete : I also have one other router lift system and the router raizer litterally performs just as well. In fact, I have found that the router raizer works a tad bit better. There isn't a ton of metal and belts and other stuff under the base plate capturing saw dust and making it sometimes difficult to change bits.

Does the router raiser fit the Porter Cable 892?
Ken D on May 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Ken, I installed mine on a 6931 base and I don't know the difference from a 892. I can tell you that it works well, although you do need to keep the slides cleaned a lubed per the instructions. Installation was pretty straight forward. There was one hole that needed to be drilled that was a little hard to get perfect, but luckily it wasn't that critical.
Will this work with the current model ryobi plunge router?
Evan P on Jul 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: For a REO 660 only
Router Raizor used to have a model 200 that fit Bosch. Will this model fit a Bosch? I have an older model Bosch 1615EVS.
Joe R on May 31, 2016
I know you had mention the Dewalt DW 625 does that cover the DW 625EK?
James on Jan 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I can not answer for any DeWalt routers. I did buy the Router Raizer to use with an old Black & Decker router that was not listed as a router that fit the Router Raizer. I was able to make adjustments, remove a couple parts on the router, and made the Router Raizer fit. The Router Raizer comes with instructions for fitting it to all sorts of routers and I was able to piece together instructions for a couple different routers in order to juryrig for my router.
My bet is that you can jury rig the Router Raizer and your router to make it work -- I can not be certain, of course. Buying the Router Raizer does become a bit of a gamble for someone with a router that is not on the list.
Good luck!

Does this mean it won't work with a Dewalt 6184 ?
hairy on Aug 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do not know but I bet "hairy" can figure out a way to fit the Router Raizer to his router. The Router Raizer did not fit my Black&Decker router but I had no trouble making adjustments in the instructions so that I have the Router Raizer installed now and it works, even though Black&Decker routers are not listed.
Can the tool still plunge easily or is this feature eliminated after modifications?
A shopper on Aug 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have a Mikita 3612. I had to do a lot of modifications, but was able to successfully get things set up. For my particular situation, the plunge feature has been disabled due to the hard connection for the raising ability. I would think this would be the same for other routers. I guess if the hard crank feature was disconnected, then you could use the plunge operation again. It would seem to me that the plunge feature would be pretty hard to control while the router was attached to the base and upside down. Good luck on your situation. Happy routing.
Will this fit into a Freud RTS 5000?
Greg B on Jul 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Don't know. I adapted mine to a Ryobi with no issues. It works very well. You may have to make up a template to fit the router to your insert. I would go on line and read the install instructions to see if they address the Freud.
With this installed on the router, how is the bit changed? Can you raise bit above table to change bit?
Chas B on Dec 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can either use the offset wrench that Rockler sells for this purpose or do what I did and put a collect extender on the router to raise the bit above the table. You can find them on ebay.
Hi, does the Raizer move the router the full plunge depth or is it just for fine adjustment after manually plunging to an approx depth?
Gsysps on Sep 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It moves the entire plunge depth via a rotary knob. I also believe you can flip your router's original depth lever to get close than use the rotary knob for fine tuning. Either way, this was well worth the purchase!! Very happy with mine!!
Hi, will this fit an old elu black and decker 3338 plunge router?
Ron R on Aug 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's on the template or not. The three hp Ryobi I used was not on the router template and mounted it. The raizer works fine on my table without any issues. You could contact the manufacturers tech support with this question
Can I make it work with a Ryobi RE 180PL1 router?
A shopper on May 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello, I'm sorry I could not say since I'm using a Freud 2000 and for me this is a very good tool, but I had to follow the instruction very closely as not to make any error. Thanks to Rockler to put that tool on their catalog. Good luck whit yours, I hope somebody would help you. Ray
will this work with a Porter Cable 7518 router?
Steve B on Apr 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would call the manufacturer directly. I got a direct and good answer to my question there.
Can I change bits above the table?
Brent K on Jan 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I can not on my router but I am not sure about other brands. I installed it on a older Elu model 338 router which is the same as the Dewalt 625. It works very well for the price.
Is this lift Compatible with a MAKITA 1101 ROUTER? Thank you
j p on Jun 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have no idea. The kit was never installed because it was considered to complicated and contained too many parts as well as modification to the router. Just buy a compatible router for the purpose. A waste of money.
