Overall Rating for Bench Dog 40-150 ProLift Router Lift Adjustment System
(based on 1 review)
Great lift, poor insert plates.
By JAK Plumber from New Jersey on December 13, 2015
I was very impressed with this lift. High quality, nice machine, works very well. The Porter Cable 7518 router motor fits like a glove. The lift raises and lowers smoothly, and the scale on the crank to dial in an exact amount to raise or lower is a nice touch.
With this being said, the plastic insert plates are very poor. The 1 1/2 inch; insert plate that comes with the unit is .014 inch; too thin. This leaves an unacceptable ledge for routing. The 2 1/2" insert was just as bad, and the zero clearance insert was about .010" too thin. Now I have to find/make a shim for each plate to bring them up to level. Bench Dog should be embarrassed. Shame on Bench Dog. The rest of the lift is such high quality, how could they use those insert plates.
The lift would easily be 5 stars (or more), but because of the insert plates, I can only rate it 4 stars.

Pros:
High quality, very nicely machined, and the Porter Cable 7518 motor fit like a glove.
Cons:
The insert plates are only plastic and they don't come close to lining up with the table. They all have to be shimmed.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
