Hi Everyone,

I have been lurking here the past few months and have enjoyed reading and learning (thanks).
I am about to order a router table and have narrowed it down to two choices. I am looking at the Rockler table with their Pro Lift or the Jessem Table with their Mast-R-Lift Excell II. The Rockler is quite a bit less expensive. It the Jessem quality that much better than the Rockler to make the extra price worth the difference.

I really like the Incra table, but they have a 7-9 week wait to get one and i have a project I am starting and need it immediately. I also don’t wish to build my own table.
Thanks in advance!

Those are all quality choices. I have a Bench Dog extension for my Delta table saw with a JessEm Mast-R-Lift II and it’s a top performer. I do like the extra weight and stability that the table saw extension offers, but all of the options you mentioned will serve you well.

Thanks Rich.
I ended up ordering the Jessem package today. I posted this thread this morning. I didn’t realize that posts don’t sow up immediately and figured something went wrong and post was gone.
I cant wait to get started with it. It is the same package that Jay39 reviewed here http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/7714.

Glad to hear you are happy with your Jessem lift!
