Inexpensive Router Lift?

I have my router mounted to the underside of my portable workbench as a crude router table. It works fine, but I would like to upgrade it a bit by installing a router lift that would allow me to adjust the bit height from above the table.
Are there any inexpensive ($50-$100) router lifts that are of decent quality?
Anyone used the "Router Raizer"?
There's nothing fancy about my table, so I don't want to spend a fortune on a lift...

Check the thread 'Router Table' dated 3/30, two cheap self made lifts were described there.

Somebody posted a couple of months back about a homemade lift using a cheap scissors jack.

American Woodworker, #106, March 2004, page 38 describes a shop project for a router lift that the text states "costs less than $100", but I'm sure that depends on what you might already have and what you'd have to buy. Their website calls that issue the "February" issue, but the hardcopy is labled "March 2004".
The project is not in the "free" list of shop projects nor is that article listed in the "article index" section so if you don't have access to that issue, this may not do you any good.

The Router Raizer was one of the early commercial ones I think, and I bought it pretty early on. In short, it does everything I ask or want. If you have a plunge router I think you will be pleased. I particularly like the fact that it is adjustable from either end of the lead screw, meaning you can use it in a table and adjust from the top, or use it handheld and adjust from the other top.
If there is a down side it is that assembling it into your router can be complicated and include slight modification of your router.
