  • "SPEED" sets lift speed rate
  • "SET ZERO" sets the current position of the lift as the new zero

Free App Updates will be available periodically on the website.


Bi-directional Foot Pedal (Included)

The footswitch allows the operator to raise or lower the lift while keeping both hands on the work piece. Use the Foot Pedal to cycle through Advanced Pass Control stored positions for hands free incremental passes!

Operations that were previously too difficult or too dangerous can now be performed on the router table (like plunge cutting, mortising, dadoes, and circle cutting) - with better dust collection and improved safety. You can turn your router table into an efficient and effective mortising machine. A simple jig that controls the movement of the work piece on top of the table, combined with raising the spinning bit via the footswitch, will yield perfect mortises.


Locking Insert Ring Kit #415-6559 (Sold Separately) and Wrench #415-6560

The 4 piece locking insert ring kit has openings of 1/4", 1/2", 1-3/16" (designed to fit standard template guide bushings), and 2-1/2" to provide additional opening sizes in your Router Plate. Easy-in and Easy-out, using the specially designed wrench, insert rings will spin and lock into place. No screws are needed. Wrench is included with PowerLift Pro® or sold separately as a replacement (#415-6560)
