HI Cliff[

Mount it so all the controls are to the front or to say as many as you can, the power switch and the lock mechanism are the two items that you want up front for sounds like You have a DeWalt router, think hard about using a plunge router for your router table, it can be a challenge to adjust it without removing the springs in the plunge base..or maybe add a lift kit,,not a high end one but maybe one for 90.oo bucks,it will do the job just find, but you can buy a router combo for about the same price that come with a lift built in with a VS built in as well...

Thanks Cliff
