I’ve got a friend that recently bought himself a Kreg router lift. He wants at least a 2.25 hp motor or more to go in it.

Your suggestions please on one.

Woodpeckers has a 3.25 hp motor on sale right now. It’s made to go into a router lift. I’m not sure if it fits a Kreg.

Just an alert: I’m not certain that the Bosch router suggested by a1Jim will fit into an aftermarket router lift. It has a bump out from the motor housing that I believe conducts power from the switch on the base. Kreg does not list it as one of the models compatible with their lift. Otherwise, it seems like a very nice router.

If it’s never coming out, I’d definitely get a 3hp. For multi use/cheap, I have 2 skil kits I like. Especially for the price.

I can’t fault the Milwaukee style routers. The nut and wrenches are bigger and more robust than others I’ve used.

This is a HORRIBLE suggestion.

The MRF23 will not work in a Kreg lift – or any other for that matter.

Because of the in handle trigger arrangement there d be no practical way to turn the router on and off.

yeah well this is a ”horrible ” way to tell jim his suggestion wont work ! no need to spit in his face !

Your opinion .

Some may be thankful they didn’t order a Bosch mrf23 for lift use because of a faulty LJ suggestion.
One that not only is erroneous, but wasn’t vetted by the person giving said suggestion.

If hurt feelings are the cost of faulty suggestions, then so be it.

No bodily fluids were exchanged.

- xedos


no you sure never worry about hurting someones feelings that for sure.i just think you could have been a little less insulting to jim.

Hello there Xedus

I responded to a question with a link, my response was what I thought was appropriate and helpful, as far as I knew the router I suggested fit the need of what Bruc101 asked for since I own a power lift pro I don’t know what will fit in other router lifts nor do I own that bosch router so please excuse my Horrible suggestion.
I hope you have a wonderful day.

I don’t have one myself, but the Bore Portamate gets generally good feedback and its on sale for $219 and comes with 1/2 and 1/4 collet sets.

You don’t say which Kreg lift it is, but my guess is this should fit, but they can double check.

xedos, I wasn’t aware that the LJ monitors appointed you as the posting police.
I always find it amusing that people like yourself who are afraid to use their real names and have zero projects, zero blogs, zero reviews must just want to troll people or perhaps you must just b lonely and what to be noticed, Have you ever made anything made out of wood? You must just be here to just stir the waters? Most people who are here just to find answers to their questions, share ideas and just have fun, So why don’t just chill and enjoy this great forum and the people in it. I don’t intend to respond to your rude post again.
