Ok, I think Brad voted for using no base and spending the additional money for a aftermarket lift. There are two schools of thought on router tables Dennis. The first is the "Whistles and bells" method where you have lots of T tracks, micrometer adjustable everything with LCD readouts, fancy aftermarket jigs and fixtures. The other method is the "Keep it simple" way taught by Bob and Rick Rosendahl of the Router Workshop. Both ways work and it is a choice you should make before you spend any money. I have used both methods and for me "Simple is better." This is not being critical or those who choose the other way, again both ways work. Look through the forums and you will find many different tables. One will be right for you.
