The Mast-R-Lift Excel™ II is our top of the line Router Table. There are many great features added to this Excel that our customers wanted. We added double sealed bearings to the lift spindle, 6 double sealed bearings to the height adjustment mechanism (actuated through 2 gear boxes) and 3 double sealed bearings to the Cam Lock. This will provide you with a lifetime of use, even with the heaviest routers on the market, your Excel II will be able to raise and lower with ease.
All of JessEm’s Lifts have the patented feature of adding tension to the threaded spindle which will remove any backlash while still adding some resistance to the rotation to the thread. This removes any vibration from the thread clearance and also prevents the spindle from moving and changing your setting while routing. This feature is included on our Mast-R-Lift Excel™ II as well. We wanted to go one step further with the Excel II, 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 same location as the crank handle. A simple twist ensures your Excel II is locked securely in place, giving you more confidence that the height is set and locked.
The Shafts on the Mast-R-Lift Excel™ II, like all of our Router Lifts are pressed into a shaft mount with hydraulic pressure. 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. This spreads the lateral load and provides a very rigid and durable mount that will withstand the toughest routing operations. All the machined components on the Mast-R-Lift Excel™ II are machined on one of our CNC mills at our Oro-Medonte, Ontario, Canada location. All of the aluminum non wear components on the lift are anodized for appearance, corrosion resistance and some wear resistance.
Table top measurements: 24″ x 32″ – 3/4″ thick.
