Will, my first table used a switched outlet in a steel "Handy box". (See photo) While having this type of switch makes it easy to shut off the router it is also easy to bump the switch and turn the router on unexpectedly. The paddle style safety switches prevent this from happening; they also make it very easy to cut power in an emergency. Regardless of which method you choose always unplug your router when making adjustments or bit changes. Like pilots using a check list, unplugging every time is the smart way to avoid accidents.
