I’ve had a lift for years and never gave centering the bit a thought. Then I bought a Leigh RTJ400 and found my router was out of center to the lift and had all kinds of problems trying to use the elliptic bushing. I ended up shimming the router to bring it back into concentricity. I’m a retired tool and die maker and have lots of measuring tools so this is how I checked it.

At the end of the day, unless you try to use bushings, concentricity should not matter.
