If you’ve been putting off building your dream router table, Rockler’s got a deal for you. For a limited time — your guess is as good as ours what that means — Rockler is selling a JessEm Mast-R-Lift router lift and a Porter-Cable 75182 motor for $465. If you purchase the kit before July 31st, you get an extra $25 rebate from Porter-Cable which brings the grand total down to $440.
Porter-Cable’s 75182 variable-speed router motor can operate at five speeds: 10,000, 13,000, 16,000, 19,000, and 21,000 RPM. The 3-1/4 HP motor provides enough power to maintain a constant speed under the most demanding loads.
JessEm designed the Mast-R-Lift to work with the 75182 motor. The lift allows you to adjust bit height and even change bits above the table. The removable “speed handle” changes the router height 1/16″ for every rotation and fits into a flush adjustment screw on top of the plate. The precision-engineered, solid-aluminum plate won’t sag or bend.
We found the next cheapest listing for the 75182 motor at Amazon for $290, and normally you can expect to pay another $290 for the JessEm Mast-R-Lift; so before before you even send in the $25 rebate, this deal saves you $115 for the pair — a nice little sum to put towards a decent fence.
This deal is only available for a limited time, and the rebate expires July 31, 2008.
