Answer: 
UPDATE: So I but the bullet and bought this router table. It is exactly 27" and fits perfectly between the rails of my Delta contractor table saw. The slots in the outer edge however, do not line up. Modifications are required. Modifications do however void any and all warranties. Make sure you're happy with the router table before cutting into it.

The Rockler Lift FX is table plate is 8-1/4" x 11-3/4" x 3/8". The Bosch router table plate is 9-1/8" x 11-1/2" x 3/8". So the short answer is no unless you modify the Rockler plate which I do not recommend. Most router lift table plates (Incra, Woodpeckers, JessEm, Kreg) are made to fit a 9-1/4" x 11-3/4" opening.

The Rockler Lift FX is table plate is 8-1/4" x 11-3/4" x 3/8". The Bosch router table plate is 9-1/8" x 11-1/2" x 3/8". So the short answer is no unless you modify the Rockler plate which I do not recommend. Most router lift table plates (Incra, Woodpeckers, JessEm, Kreg) are made to fit a 9-1/4" x 11-3/4" opening. Why Bosch deviated from the standard table plate size is beyond me. Bosch does make an attachment that bolts to the table (RA1165) to allow height adjustment from the top but it only has 7/8" movement and is limited by what routers it will accept.
If you want to use a router lift, don't buy this table. Read Less

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. We have not tested the Rockler Lift FX with the RA1181 router table. The mounting plate will work with several manufacturers routers. If your model does not match up with the pre-drilled holes you can mark off and drill the holes in the mounting plate to match your router.

No. Easy setup, though. An hour or two, at most. Insertt leveling takes a lot of the time. Take your time with this and it pays of in the end. Great table.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 80 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Review of Bosch 120 Volt Corded 27" X 18" Router Table After reading many reviews I selected the Bosch Router table as "best of breed" for the money. Believe me, I studied this for a while before making my purchase. I also went through several You Tube videos and was aware it took time to assemble this table. First, and much to my disappointment, the router table top and legs were scratched. It would have been impossible for the retailer to make the scratches because of the packaging so let me assume that Bosch send out the product on a day when their quality inspection team was on vacation. Second, and very important, is that there are a number of screws. It took me longer to determine where the screws went than it do to do the assembly. Why in the world would you not package the screws by the area in which they are destined to go rather then put them all in a single bag? Lastly, I will say that Home Depot was receptive to make everything right and agreed to take the product back with a full refund and a discount, but the time I invested in putting the table together helped me to decide otherwise. Bosh, I spend a lot of money on tools and accessories. I'm in Home Depot 2-5 times a week, but this is the last product of yours that will adorn my workshop. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great sturdy table. Purchased to match the Bosch router. Tedious to set up, especially the leveling of the router mounting plate. Table electrical switch has two outlets, so I plug the router into one, and the vacuum into the other, so one switch turns both on. It's twice the size of my old table for my 40 year old craftsman, so it doesn't move or 'walk' when I am cutting. Holes in plate for other brands. My old craftsman would fit in this. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bosch bench top router table It is very good price for router table I can use this to learn how to use router, router bits and router table. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bosch Router Table This is a well designed, high quality tool which works well. July 5, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Far from precision There are many good reviews for this table. I guess, it really depends on what you do and on your expectations. It's a good design but not executed well. All challenges during assembly aside. I managed to somewhat level the router plate with the table. However, the round inserts are at least 1/32 lower than the plate. It makes it almost impossible to make anything in a repeatable way. You cannot make a simple groove straight. This router table does not work for me because it's near impossible to get anything done with better than 1/32 precision. Very disappointed and will return. March 27, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good for the price This router table is good for the price, had problems with the paint build up in the ripping groove that had to be removed. apart from that unit works fine. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little table Although not shown in the picture, this is a table or bench top router table. It does take a little bit of time to assemble but they have really thought of everything for safety and convenience. DO take the time to insure that your table is flush and true with your router base. My router was an older model Sears and the bolt pattern on the table was there; odds are yours will be as well. You need to clamp or bolt the table to your work table since the pushing of your work piece through the router is enough force to push the router table across your work table. There are bolt holes to bolt it down but clamps worked just as easily. January 5, 2016
