I need a plan that I saw in a recent WW magazine. It was a shop built
Router Lift. I don't know if it was in Wood, or Shopnotes, or what.
I know that I bought the magazine, but I have no idea which issue it
was and now I can't find it. Can anyone help me out? I am not
advocating copying the article, I'm more than happy to purchase
another copy of a back issue, just let me know what month / year and
which magazine it was. THANKS!

Was cruising the Wood Central web site recently and came across an
article by Ellis Walentine who helped design the router table that Norm
later made famous. The original design which was published in American
Woodworker Apr 95 (out of print) had a flex shaft mechanism running to
a wheel on the front of the cabinet to accomplish the router lift.
There was a user tip in Woodsmith a couple of issues back (too tired
to dig it out right this minute and check the number) for a shop-made
No real need to buy a back issue if that was the one- it was half a
pipe clamp (the side with the little crank) mounted to the underside
of the router table with one of those threaded bushings that look like
they could be the end of a shower curtain rod. Router was lifted and
lowered by the crank on the pipe clamp. Really simple.
If it was another one, I'm as in the dark as you are.
