Some of these big honkin 3 HP routers had conversion kits that exchanged the smooth depth stop rod with a threaded rod with a star knob and nut on the top. This changed the router from a plunger to a dial a depth router.

I put PC’s conversion kit on my PC 3 HP plunger and have it mounted in my router table. Some have posted pics where they drilled a hole in the router base and extended the threaded rod through their router table plate for a built in top accessible lift mechanism.
