If you need an adapter to mount standard PC style collars, here's an odd place but they have a lot of various ones: Leigh (as in the dovetail jig company). They have an incredible number of them.

I've got the 2HP Plunge router model like the one you listed. It's made by Ryobi. Cheap Collet (split shaft) is it's biggest downfall. Bosch is better.

I like to use a solid carbide upward spiral bit when cutting M&T joints. I use a plunge router for ease of plunge also. I like using 1/2" shank bits for strength during the cuts.
