Tis time to be jolly…to me!
I have the Bench Dog Tools 40-102 ProMax Cast Iron Router Table Extension fitted to my Delta Unisaw. Love that thing! However, unsure if I can swing $369 for the only router lift (I think) that will fit the proprietary Rockler/Bench Dog router table. And since the Jessem is in the top 3 of router lifts, I’m comfy to go for it.
I come to this conclusion to purchase after a “hint” at our upcoming bonus work checks. I was unaware of the $$$ amount prior to any black friday sales at Rockler.
Given Christmas sale events…does anyone recall 10 or 20 or 30% off sales on these things or store wide?
PS: I know the Incra Mast-R-Lift-II-R is only made for Rockler/Benchdog table tops (notice…the “R” at the end to designate this).

I bought my Incra Miter5000 this summer when Rockler had 20% off on Incra products so it does happen from time to time. The Benchdog extension table is awesome I have it on my craftsman saw with the Incra lift, rock solid so far. The magna lock rings are a lot better then the snap in plastic rings as well

20% off Incra products…that’s what I’m talking about! I guess I’ll just have to keep vigilant on Rockler notifications. Is not a mandatory date specific thing as long as I know those type of sale events do occur.

You can buy right now direct from incra with 10% off, coffee advertised on their website. Good folks over there support em! I’m sure you’ll find some other goodies you want too that rockler may not stock

Grant… unfortunately, because I have the Rockler Benchdog cast iron top, I am locked into the Mast-R-Lift-II-R (notice the add R at the end…special made for Rockler only). From Incra website: “These versions of the INCRA Mast-R-Lift II are not compatible with Rockler or Bench Dog tables.” Only available via Rockler, though is made by Incra.
I did add Rockler to my Facebook and signed up for emails. Should help if the time comes.

Oops sorry I wasn’t aware of that
If you really want it now I’ve heard great things about rockler customer service – worth a phone call to ask if they can do anything, and mention incras sale :-)
Worst they’ll say is no

doesn’t hurt to call. I’ll do that.
They currently have promotion on table top + router lift + stand for $999+. Maybe I can work some magic….

I have the BD wing and Incra lift on my Ridgid 3650 and love it. If you get one , you will not regret it! I couldn’t imagine trying to use my router table w/o a lift.

I have that lift, love it! Worth the money! Get yourself a muscle chuck – worth the $. Also, the Incra clean sweep attachment.

No go for customer service. They could of given me free shipping + $30 gift card.
Current sales on the flyer & webpage will go through Christmas. Unable to get % off for router lift themselves. Phoey. They could not see past December. Maybe, January!
On side note…customer service did say this was not the only router compatible with the Benchdog cast iron router top. Another model, you have to do away with a tab to make it fit.
But many positive comments about the Incra that I’ll stick with it.

I changed mind! Bought the lift this afternoon. Wasn’t on sale.. but getting tired of being frugal 356 days a year. And did get that $30 gift card & free shipping upon request :)
