Default Can the motor on a PC 7539 be pulled from the base?

New to the forums here and have already gained a wealth of knowledge.

Can the motor be pulled from the base of a 7539 to be mounted in a lift on a table?
I've found one for sale, but I don't know if the motor can be pulled from the base like the 7518.

Thanks in advance...
Derek

Derek, a better choice would be to remove the plunge springs and mount the router to the table. No need to buy a lift this way, unless you like throwing away money.

Answered my own question looking at one at woodcraft... a resounding NO.

I'm Sorry Derek, I didn't answer your question. As you observed the PC 7538/7539 plunge base is part of the motor housing and can not be removed. I am surprised that PC has never made a plunge base for the 7518; I would be willing to bet a nickle that they do in the future. Wouldn't that be a hell of a combo kit?
