“Pre-set stops would only work if the tool offset is consistent, i.e. the bit is set to the same depth each time it’s inserted.”

Right and that’s exactly what happens when you use the tool holders with the adapters I described above. You can also fake it with drills by using a smaller gage pin behind the drill. Actually this might also work for a router bit held in a collet.

The cost to do something custom like this, to be sold in small quantities, should be some where in the $100 to $200 price range or less. How much time do you think someone would save who does a lot of routing? I think quite a bit (excuse the intended pun) of time.

You may very well be right on the small market. Don’t have the experience to know.
