Default Battery mounting router under table

Hi all i have just purchased a Makita DRT50Z Makita 18V battery unit and would like to know if there are any concerns or tips for using it mounted as a work table, ie how to emergency stop etc.

Its an edge trimmer, designed for fine shavings and small edge moulding work. Not really suited to table mounted work at all.

Kind of light duty for a router table.

I want it for light work only but prefer the steady and secure option of being able to use a table rather than hand held. It comes with a plunge base etc so can be easily fixed to a table insert. The question I have is not power related but more so about how to use a battery powered device with no means of fitting a bump stop OFF button.

In my opinion, I wouldn't worry about it.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

There is no way to fit a safety switch to a battery powered tool without stripping the tool down and running wires from the switch terminals to the new switch.
Truly, youre making hard work for yourself.

I think the only way I would try it is to mount it fairly close to the edge of an open bottomed table so that it’s easy to get to. I would also only mount it in a benchtop table so that it’s up higher and easier to see and reach.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

How would you quantify "light work only"? Do you want it for being extremely portable? I think I'm missing something here.
