The router I have mounted currently is the Porter Cable model 1002 w/ 1001 fixed base. I do have a plunge base for it as well, but have not tried it yet. It is a smaller 1/4" router, I am using Freud 'advanced' 15 piece bit set, it cuts great with those quality bits! I would eventually like to add a 1/2" PC to go with it that will fit the same fixed base.
Good catch on the dual-purpose design and flat storage. I designed it as a work surface, using bench cookies, clamps and stops for assembling, finishing, jigs, etc. The table will come off the SS and the legs are easily removed for compact storage.
I will work on my profile, I have enjoyed and learned a lot reading old threads!
