JessEm Mast-R-Lift Excel II Table Package
RatingDo something about the photosThe lift was easy enough to install, but the fence instructions were somewhat confusing when the same part is given two names and the manual photos: horriblely blurred and dark- no help at all!
RatingExcellent package although fence has some issuesAssembly was straightforward, instructions easy to follow. Table feels solid and the router lift is top notch. Coupled with the wexley digital readout, hight adjustments are effortless and extremely accurate. Dust collection is about 90% efficient for most edge work. Of course, forget about DC for dados unless you build your own dust catcher at the end of the table.
The fence is solid and fairly easy to adjust depth of cut. I'm not so happy with the aluminum offset shims that come with the fence. They are difficult to slide into the slots on the fixed fence, so tight in fact, that inserting them produces aluminum shavings and have to use needle nose pliers to pull them out. I'm considering contacting Jessem for a replacement.
