Found this video. He spins it quite easily, so maybe there’s some gunk underneath to create a lot of friction.

Thanks, Rayne. Yeah, mine spins nowhere near that easy. An update to the new router. Just got finished installing it into the lift and measured .001” runout on the top bearing of the Whiteside Ultimate Trim bit with a precise bits collet. I took the bearing off and measured .0005 runout on the shaft. Not Bad! nice to be back in business. Just need to get that disk to turn easier

update – I did a thorough cleaning of my lift with wd-40 then followed it up with a wipe down and an application of Rem Oil (lightweight gun oil) which should protect and lubricate the lift screw and shafts. I sprayed a few drops in the metal adjusting scale and began turning (required lots of force to move) the disk with the aid of a metal pic (in the knurled dimples). It slowly started turning easier so I added more oil and eventually whatever gunk had made the disc very difficult to spin now moves freely with very little effort! so voila. fixed!

As a side note, I spoke with Woodpeckers customer service and they offer free repairs of these units should you ever need it. That’s diagnosis, repair, parts, and labor and return shipping included. You just have to pay to get it there. That’s a lifetime warranty folks. You can’t complain about that! They did say its ok to clean your PRL-V2 with wd-40 but try not to use that as the lubricant. you need to apply a light 3 n 1 machine oil or gun oil as I used. WD-40 leaves behind a sticky residue that attracts dust and we all know how dusty it is under our router tables!

hope this helps someone in the future.
