djesde – what Dave said, it’s the only way to go. (If you use any 1/4 inch bits, get a quarter inch adaptor while you’re at it.)

I also removed the plunge springs, but then decided to dedicate it to my router table, so I put them back in because it was hard to adjust (using the fine depth adjuster thingy). When reducing the cutting depth Without springs the weight of the router is insufficient to follow the depth adjuster down resulting in a slip/stick process. The spring helps gravity make the router follow the adjuster.

I have since acquired a PC 690 with a fixed base for handheld usage. It’s lot easier to handle than the DW625 and has enought HP for the stuff that I do. I plan on getting a plunge base for it soon as I got a bunch of marble holes to route using a template.
