Absolute z axis height

Hello all -

First post here and hoping to get some info from the experts. I have a 12x30 on order and I am getting a space set up in my shop for it to reside. However, I am space limited in a portion of the foot print for the z height. As you can see by the photo below I have a cabinet that is exactly 15 inches over the table below. That is 34 inches from the edge of the table. The question that I have for you experts is: Can someone run their machine to z-max and take a measurement so that I can rest easily knowing that my Longmill will nest perfectly under my cabinet. I have read on this site and others that the height is ~14 inches but I have see in the enclosure threads that you should give 20in.

Thank you in advance for any and all help.


@jdh Welcome, Jason.

I just measured mine again, to be sure. From the surface that the feet are on - in my case, the table top - to the top of the router is 12.75". This is with the router as low as it can be in the clamp, and using a Makita router.

Keep in mind that, with longer bits and depending on the thickness of the material you are cutting, you may need to raise the router in the clamp.

Fantastic!! Thank you. It looks like I am good to go. I have the Makita router in my order should be good fine with 15".
