I can take more pics (tomorrow), but it is only plywood and a tail vise  screw 
from “shop Fox” (about $18.00).  I will take a couple of more pics but it is 
pretty simple bracket.  I am going to replace the tail vise screw with a acme 
threaded rod with the same TPI as the “X and Y” screws.  Then I can turn it to 
know how far I am moving the height by counting turns, same as on the other two 
axis.

Great suggestion. I hope you make plans available so others can emulate. More 
pictures as well as sources for parts are of great assistance. Thanks.

I just added a hand crank to my router for the “Z” axis to make setting depth 
of cut much easier and more accurate.  All this with a standard plunge router.  
This is a proto-type and in the next week or so I will build a nicer version 
with a couple of small changes.  For one, I am adding a 6” ruler scale to side 
where I stand so I can see the depth of cut as I adjust it. 

 

I just added a cabinet under the unit for storage and improved the table height 
adjustment so now I can set the table height accurately, level, using no tools, 
and can do it in under three minutes.  I am also working on a clamping table 
design to be able to clamp any shape instantly and safely, both horizontal and 
vertical.  All coming soon, I hope.  

I hope to also start doing videos of these improvements and some tricks using 
the legacy instead of other woodworking machines.
