"Unique in that height adjustments are made from the side of the table."

Review of MLCS U-Turn Router Lift from Woodsmith Magazine No. 212.

"Most router lifts work in essentially the same way. But the new U-Turn Router Lift is unique in that height adjustments are made from the side of the table.

This offers a couple of advantages when using your router table. For one, you can leave the handle in place while using the table, so you don't have to worry about misplacing it when it's not in use. Also, the side-mounted handle makes it easy to make adjustments with the workpiece on the tabletop. When you're trying to "dial-in" the router bit height to match a mark on the actual piece, this lift offers an unparalleled advantage.

In use, the U-Turn is an impressive router lift. The construction is rock-solid, and it's attached to an

aluminum insert plate. The height adjustment is easy to make, and the handle turns smoothly and steadily. It's definitely worth a look if you're in the market for a router lift. Plus, MLCS even makes a version of the lift that will fit in other manufacturers' router tables."
