The Router workshop uses modified plunge routers with the plunge springs removed correct? Asrubin mentions "it must be turned", so it appears to be a fixed base eh.
There're hassles with the plunge and fixed base platforms, however, this is something you'll have to put up with until you can afford a lift without wifey killing you in your sleep. The only thing is to pull it out, unplug it, adjust it and reinstall it.
I put up with a non modified 7539 in the RT for 11 yrs. Lifts really come into play with very fast duplication/restoration profile projects.and above the table bit changes.
There are quite a few lifts on the market all vary in price from just over $100 to over $300
Never bite the hand that looks dirty!
