A Router Table With a Built-In Lift(4 of 6)

Some router tables have a built-in lift inside an enclosure. A wrench fits into the flush-mounted bolt on the table top. Instead of having to reach underneath the table to make height adjustments, turn the wrench to adjust the lift, which raises or lowers the bit. Raising the unit all the way up allows you to change the bit without disengaging the router from the lift.
