The RouterRaizer is an ingenious way of raising and lowering your router bits from the top of the table.

Up until recently, router manufacturers have been reluctant to address the fact that routers are used upside-down and installed in router tables. I say they are reluctant to address this fact because no routers, that I know of, are router-table friendly. All are designed to be adjusted in the right-side-up position. This is especially true of plunge routers.

This situation has created a market niche for entrepreneurs like the people that designed and built the RouterRaizer.

No more getting on hands and knees with a flashlight to set that panel-raising bit by 1/16th of an inch.

The kit is supplied with all of the necessary components for your particular router model and a detailed instruction booklet. Installing the kit should take no more than a half hour or so and I can tell you up front that you will be pleasantly surprised with the results. The kit we got for testing is for the Freud plunge router that happens to be one of the easiest under-the-table routers to adjust, the RouterRaizer now makes it a cinch.

A small hole is drilled into the router plate and after all of the parts are installed, you simply drop in the crank handle from the top of the table and turn to raise or lower the bit. It’s just that simple. If you only have one router in your shop, no problem. Just remove the router from under the table and use the same crank handle for adjusting the depth of the bit. The simplicity of the RouterRaizer gives it our five star rating.
