Did they ever come up wih a simple router raiser for the 690 router. My routers may be too old. Maybe a DW 625?

Router Raizer only worked on plunge router bases.
They make one for PC 693 base, and DW625.

Is this what your looking for? Works with PC690 or DW625. You just need the motor, no base.

The 690 has been around so long there are lifts that can carry them, as well as a number of heavier, stronger, more capable motors for router table use. PC themselves don’t talk about through the table adjustment until you get to the 890’s. A lift without a winder, is not much of a help to you.

Where a 690 excells is hand held, for most of the smaller sized trim bits with a 1/2” shank. It’s what the Doctor ordered. Either a D handle, or a plunge base, it rocks.

Probably the most current, and upgrade move is to marry it to a MPower CRB7 base, use the plunge base, and just keep going.

Sorry not looking for a lift just a simple adjustment. They changed the adjustments for the newer ones which resulted in easier manipulation.I may have to move up to a current router.

I’m trying to trade some Cherry for a newer Bosch . Maybe I can use it…

I use this on my PC 7539 router in my router table and I’ve been happy enough with it that I decided against buying a better lift. It fits several models of PC and other brand routers. It does have to be a plunge base though. I’ve have it installed for 2+ years and never had an issue with it. And I can do bit changes above the table without using any kind of extension. I did have to bend a crook in one of my wrenches though.
