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.
SMOOTH OPERATIONWe 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.
NEW CAM LOCKAll 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.
BEARING THE LOADThe 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.
NO BENT WRENCHESLike 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.
CNC MACHINEDAll 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 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.
