Get a shaper then? ... . Seriously there are used 3 hp powermatic sharpers all over for cheaper than most of the high end router tables with a new router.... well at least around here there are.
You've got moving heavy machines down and your getting wired for 240v.
I need to do the same thing. I've been avoiding buying a lift because it will mean a new router, and to me, it's not a "sexy" purchase since I only really use the RT for edge profiles and pattern routing.
Maybe it'll be my next "big" buy. Or maybe Roubo hardware will be. It never ends.
