PowerLift PRO® App Features:
The PowerLift Pro Android app allows precise control of your precision router lift.
- "LIFT POSITION" displays the current position of the lift along with the units of measure
- Tapping "UP" or "DOWN" moves the lift
- "SPEED" sets lift speed rate
- "SET ZERO" sets the current position of the lift as the new zero
- "MEMORY POSITIONS" stores six user customizable locations for repetitive operations. Incremental passes are easy to setup, and the foot pedal can be used to cycle through the positions while keeping hands on the work.
- "PRESET MOVEMENTS" provides Max up and Max down, and moves the lift 1/100", 1/64", 1/32", 1/16", 1/18", 1/4" and 1/2",
Free App Updates will be available periodically on our website.
Bi-directional Foot Pedal
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 real mortising machine
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.
