I have a big home made router table/cabinet and after some research I decided on a Porter Cable fixed base router that had ‘through the base’ router bit adjustment. It came with the adjuster. I had to drill a hole in the router table insert plate the router base was attached to, so the adjuster could be inserted from above when adjustment was needed. I have to reach under the table top to unlatch the router base clamp prior to adjusting bit height. Speed adjustment is also under the table. All in all, the setup works great and wasn’t very expensive.

I never remove the router, so ease of removal is not a factor for me. If it was, I’d just have the insert plate sitting loose in its recess, so the plate and router could be easily lifted upwards out of the table. That’s how I had my previous router table set up.
