Description

In Detail

Raising and lowering a router in a table set-up can be a chore if you have to reach under the table each time you need to change the depth of cut. Being able to carry out this operation from above the table makes life so much easier, allowing height adjustments to be made quickly and accurately. The UJK Technology router elevator is a logical solution for fast, accurate production on many router table installations. This compact design was developed by us to fit straight into our own router tables and most table set-ups can accommodate this size of insert (305 x 229 x 6mm). The unit can be made to fit flush into the tabletop by the provision of levelling screws at each corner of the table insert. Height adjustment is carried out by inserting a handle through a measurement dial set into the machine table. Each rotation of the handle raises or lowers the cutter by exactly 2mm and the integral scale is graduated into increments enabling very accurate adjustments to be carried out. The router elevator is supported on all four corners by a substantial threaded rod which means that the router stays very stable in use. A locking mechanism is fitted so that the height of the router can be securely locked in any desired position. The rise and fall mechanism is chain driven which is an endless loop connecting the sprockets and is both easy and positive in action. Routers are attached to the router elevator either directly or with the use of the supplied adaptor plate. N.B. Machine screws will be required to attach your router to this product and the thread size will vary according to router type.

Brilliant

After using this lift for the last nineteen months, it has transformed the way I use my table, so much easier than my previous Triton table, unlike the previous reviewer I have not had any problems with seized bearings, even thought my table lives in a damp barn the unit still lifts with no effort, I would not hesitate to buy another if needed.

Not very impressed

Have not been very impressed with this router lift. Purchased around 2 year ago, not a huge amount of use and the insert on the top no longer fits. Have no idea why, it looks like the insert is made with an incredibly snug fit. The issue being the insert is plastic and the rest is aluminium.

The list action sometimes becomes very stiff and difficult to turn. Today I went to use it and one of the bearings has completely seized stopping it from rising or falling. This has has approx. 15 hours use in 2 years.

Not very impressed, possibly one of the worst purchases I have made.

Update needed

Axminster need to update the universal sub-base to include more modern Routers, I bought this thinking my Hitachi M12V2 would fit, as the M12VE does, but no chance, come on Axminster you need to get with it on this excellent piece of kit.

UJK Router Elevator

As previous reviewer stated there is a problem when mounting a Makita 3612 and possibly any other plunge router that has larger handles on each side. Yes you can orientate the router from front to back rather than side to side but if you intend using an under table dust extraction housing which I am, then you can't. I've now removed both side handles but one of the handles has the power control switch in it, so I've now had to screw this to the body of the router further up and around so that it avoids the chain drive. This now makes the router dedicated to the table. I found the Makita easy to mount to the elevator, the manual tells you the 2 holes to use, but I also managed to pick up 2 further ones to provide a bit more security. have had no problems with screw lengths as previous reviewers stated. Note: the elevator does not come with any fixing screws so check out the download manual on the website before ordering to find out what screws you will need. Other than the problem I've stated above, this product looks well made and seems to operate smoothly and easily. I've still to test in operation as I'm still building my router table set up.

502701 - UJK ROUTER ELEVATOR

While reading an article in Fine Woodworking it brought the advantages of the Excaliber Router Lift to my attention. When comparing that product sold in the USA to this one, it appears to be pretty much the same product. That said, I am very pleased with this beautifully engineered product. But, saying that, the universal fixing plate leaves a bit to be desired in that the holes do not line up with my Makita 3612 router, and it needed adapting because I could only pick up 2 of the 4 holes. The other 2 holes I managed to use were for the bush retaining clip. But, like in the other review, I had to grind off the top of the bolts, but only 10,000ths of an inch, in the booklet it recommends you remove the handles, which doesn't make sense because on most modern plunge routers the handles are moulded to the body. In order for the handles not to interfere with the chains, the router needs to be turned at right angles to the router elevator, which gives you another problem, that you have to put the elevator into your router table, then turn it upside down, and then fit the router from below, which is rather awkward, eg on your knees and only 3" space to get your hand in to tighten the Allen set screws. It's then equally difficult to turn the table back up on its feet. The downside of turning the router at right angles is that it really ties up your router permanently to the table. You will need a router collet extension (1/2" shank) because your cutter won't reach through otherwise. All that said, it was awkward to fit, but I am delighted with it and highly recommend this product. Note: it comes with 2 countersink set pins and a bolt with a nylon collar on it. I had to go on the Excaliber website to discover what they were for because there is no mention of their function in the leaflet. The bolt with the nylon collar on it is the starting pin when using the router without a fence, and the 2 bolts are if fitting to a cast iron table.
