NO DEDICATED ROUTER

Many of our customers have more than one fixed base router, so we wanted this new lift to fit as many of the fixed based routers currently for sale on the market. Now, you can use the new Mast-R-Lift II with more than just one dedicated router. The new Mast-R-Lift II fits every fixed base router we could find on the market right out of the box.
.

WHAT YOU GET

The Mast-R-Lift Excel II comes with a 2" insert ring to reduce the size of the bit opening in the plate and the opening is large enough to accommodate a 3-1/2" diameter bit without an insert installed. Our Lifts and Plates all feature our Tab-Loc™ design insert rings which are another JessEm innovation that is common on many other manufacturers’ products today. We figure we must be doing something right if our competition follows our lead.

The Mast-R-Lift Excel II also comes with an insert ring wrench, start pin and all necessary hardware to mount to a JessEm stand and fence. Digital Readout is available separately. The Mast-R-Lift Excel II is a precision piece of engineering that you will be proud to own and find use whenever you are in your work shop.

CNC MACHINED

All the machined components on the Mast-R-Lift Excel II are machined on one of our CNC machining centers at our Barrie, Ontario, Canada location. Even the crank handle on the Lift is machined out of solid bar stock and all the aluminum non wear components on the Lift are anodized for appearance, corrosion resistance and some wear resistance.

The Mast-R-Lift Excel II works with the following router motors:

Porter Cable 7518/690/890
Bosch 1617/1618
DeWalt 610/618
Makita 1101
Hitachi M12VC & KM12VC
Milwaukee 5625/5615/5616/5619
Craftsman 17543/17540/28190
Rigid R29302.

OPTIONAL DIGITAL READOUT ATTACHMENT

For our customers who want the added benefit of a digital readout we decided to design the Excel with this in mind. We worked with Wixey to bring the benefits of their digital reaodut to our Excel. The Wixey  digital readout can be used in both decimal inches, fractional inches and metric. To make adding a readout simple for our customers we have custom designed the whole assembly with special brackets that attache to the top and carriage.

NOTE: DIGITAL READOUT IS NOT INCLUDED STANDARD WITH THE MAST-R-LIFT EXCEL II AND MUST BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY.

NO BENT WRENCHES

Like our current Mast-R-Lift II, bit changes above the table, was a must for all routers that work with the Mast-R-Lift Excel II without the need for special bent wrenches.

BEARING THE LOAD

The shafts on the Mast-R-Lift Excel II like all our Router Lifts are pressed into a shaft mount with hydraulic pressure. We don’t just thread our shafts to the top plate. The owner of JessEm spent many years as a Tool and Die maker before founding our company, and cutting corners was not an option. By pressing the shafts into a larger diameter mount we are able to attach the shafts to the top plate and fasten in place with more than one screw spreading the lateral load and providing a very rigid and durable mount that will withstand the toughest routing operations.

NEW CAM LOCK

All of JessEm’s Lifts have the patented feature of adding tension to the threaded spindle to remove any backlash while adding some resistance to the rotation of the thread. This removed any vibration from the thread clearance and also prevented the spindle from moving and changing your setting while routing. We included this feature once again on our new Mast-R-Lift Excel  II. We wanted to go one step further, so we added a dedicated locking mechanism for heavy duty long term routing operations. Now, not only do you have the patented tensioning feature but we also have added a cam lock that is accessible from the the same location as the crank handle. A simple twist ensures your Excel is locked securely in place giving our customers more confidence that the height is set and locked in place.

 

SMOOTH OPERATION

We wanted the Mast-R-Lift Excel II to be extremely smooth while raising and lowering your Lift. In our opinion, there was only way to make this happen, adding doubled sealed bearings to the rotation of the Lift spindle. In fact, the new Mast-R-Lift Excel  II has 6 double sealed bearings on the height adjustment mechanism and is actuated through 2 gear boxes. We also wanted the cam lock to be extremely smooth so we added 3 double sealed bearings there as well.. These provide a lifetime of use for your Lift and even with the heaviest router on the market your Excel can be raised and lowered with ease.

Redesigning the Mast-R-Lift Excel has been top priority here at JessEm. The Mast-R-Lift Excel is our top of the line table and if we were going to redesign it there was a lot to live up to. The new Mast-R-Lift Excel II lives up to the name and is a product we are very proud to introduce. We have added many great features to the Excel we knew our customers would want.

In 1999, JessEm Tool invented the Rout-R- Lift. This innovation created a whole new category for the woodworker and in November 2009 was credited in an article by Wood Magazine as one of the top 25 innovations in Woodworking in the past 25 years. This was a very flattering compliment to our efforts and reinforces to us why we need to ensure we continue to build the best Lifts on the market. Our new Mast-R-Lift Excel II is a router table truly in a league of it's own and we believe is the best router table solution currently for sale on the market.
