What's Hot?
  • MagnaLOCK magnetic insert rings
  • Doubled sealed bearings on the lift spindle which means that even the heaviest router on the market can be raised and lowered with one finger
  • Patented thread tensioning design which means it's not necessary to lock the router into position after setting the cutting height
  • Hard anodized top plate for long life
What's Not?
  • Nothing
Bottom Line The Incra Mast-R-Lift II shares all of the advantages of the JessEm Mast-R-Lift II on which it is based. It's got fast, incredibly precise height adjustments from above the table, smooth, low-friction 'one-finger' carriage movement and compatibility with 18 of the most popular router models out of the box to name a few. But on top of that it's got Incra's MagnaLOCK magnetic insert rings which give a number of real benefits compared to other brands' phenolic inserts - in particular, the height adjustment screws in the four corner tabs. Overall, we think that gives it the edge making the Incra Mast-R-Lift II our go-to router lift.
