Underside. the brownish post is the height adjustment VIA hex key through the top.
This is the second router insert I made. I made this one to fit into my regular router table.
It has a lead screw and chain lift and it tilts.
This only took me a year on and off at lunch to make this. Hardest time was to find the small chain and sprockets to make the height adjustment.
Top view. The lifting adjustment is by a hex key through a hole on the top.

Oakleafjoe.....beautiful mechanism! ! As a former steering column designer, I know a lot of time and thinking went into that mechanism...and it looks top notch to me...good job! Will it be going into production soon? ? ?
What's the possibility of you offering these to some other woodworkers?
Good looking project; as for the difficulty in finding chain and sprockets, in the future try:Small Parts Inc, William M Berg, or many of the various suppliers to the FIRST Robotics organization.
That is a super nice piece of equipment! I wish I could get my father to help me make some stuff like that (he's a machinist of 30+ years) but he really doesn't like machining anymore, and if it isn't for work, he doesn't want to do it. I can't say I blame him!
But that really is super nice. I like that way you have it set up to tilt as well as lift, it would be nice if some of the big name lifts did that as well.
