Welcome to the form, Phil.
I just installed an M12VE in my saw-mounted table. I couldn't find a template for drilling the plate so I've now got a couple of extra holes in it, but the router works great. I removed the handles so that it's easier to access. Orientation is a little more critical without the extension knob. Regarding height adjustment,you may want to see what you can work out yourself as the extension knob is about $30 online. I'm looking at adapting my old Router Raizer to it.
This is a very nice router and one of the quietest I've heard.
