Sorry, I'm keeping the remote switch. I don't like the idea of fumbling around under the table searching for a switch that changes locations with bit height. The remote switch is in the same place every time, and it's quick and easy to find.

Yet another perfect reason to use PLUNGE routers in and out of tables. I Know that router has a sort of speed control but it sounds like it doesn't have soft start!

No utube video of you dancing around, Andy?

Glad you weren't hurt or damage your tool seriously.

My router does have a soft start. But the starting torque was still enough to unscrew the motor from the wax-lubricated base. I have a Triton plunge router, which I prefer to this one, but the Triton has a panel-raising bit in it that I didn't want to re-set.

I have my variable speed control/On/Off switch mounted to the front under the table edge on both my router tables and the router is in the ON position all the time on HI speed.

Andy, I have always considered that the Triton was designed for table use, that being so, perhaps it's time to re-arrange things so that the Triton is under the table where I have mine.

Please get a Proper 110V NVR switch.
If there is a utility Power Failure, for SAFETY you want the tool to stay off when power suddenly returns.

US $21.95 on ebay + freight.

I'm also a fan of those paddle switches. I place them when possible where I can hit them with my leg or hip so I don't have to relese my grip on the workpiece or tool.

Buy an NVR switch.

The safety factor of knowing that machine will not start up by itself after a power outage is the main factor, although the ease of just whacking the switch rather trying to push or pull a little lever is also a very good plus.

Another point in the NVR favour is that most ordinary switches like Andy's appears to be is that it only switches the live wire. The neutral is still connected. Its quite possible for a fault on another machine or part of the wiring to push live voltage back down the neutral wire, and suddenly your machine is live, just as youre changing a bit.
