U-Turn Router Lifts

This professional quality router lift is precisely machined from aluminum and steel. Built to handle the big 4.2" diameter, 3-1/4 HP routers with ease (MLCS Router Motor #415-6561 and Porter Cable #7815). This lift allows very smooth and easy adjustments. With 3" of vertical travel, router bit changes can be made from above the table. Sealed ball bearings, brass fittings, heavy duty guide posts and a lead screw mean this router lift is built to last.

  • The "U-Turn" Lift #415-6557 comes pre-mounted to a 12-3/32" x 9-1/32" x 3/8" heavy duty aluminum router plate that is designed to fit the MLCS Router Table Top and Extension Table Tops.
  • The "U-Turn 2" #415-6558 is mounted to an 11-3/4" x 9-1/4" x 3/8" insert plate (Please verify your table opening size!) which is designed to fit other (non-MLCS) router tables, including the EAGLE Router Table.
  • The router insert plate opening allows for bits up to 3-1/2" in diameter, and includes a locking insert ring with a 2" opening.
  • The 18-1/2" height adjustment handle arm extends from the center of your router table so that the handle will clear the edge of any 36" wide or smaller table.
  • The #415-9683 Pro Router Table Stand is designed to be used with this lift. If you are not using the pro Router Table Stand, you will have to drill a hole in your stand to accommodate the handle.
U-Turn Lifts include:

  • 3 allen wrenches
  • 1 insert ring with 2" opening
  • 1 insert wrench
  • 1 starter pin
  • Plate leveling screws

Wrench is sold separately (#415-6560)

I recently bought the 3 1/4 hp router motor as well as the appropriate roputer lift. After getting the router table built I found that the 1/4" collet was not true. I called, explained my problem. A new one arrived at my house the next day. No questions, no hassel, and at no charge. Awsome, thanks I'll be back to shop again
