I have developed the world's first foot-activated motorized router lift. By motorizing the raise and lower action of the router, it enables operations never before possible with a standard router table.
In general, working with a table-mounted router is safer, more accurate, and provides for improved dust collection. Adding a foot-activated router lift opens up the possibility to perform additional operations that were not possible, or as safe, without one. For the small investment in time and materials, your router table can be transformed into an efficient mortising machine with features that rival that of expensive specialty machines.
