Default king routers

hi :
i purchased a new king router and a router table to get started wood working. im havin some problems mounting the router. first should a plunge router be mounted in a table. how do i get the screw sizes and what size holes to drill. as a journeyman carpenter i have no problems centering the router, etc, however are there any little tricks that could help me out. i've check the router and the router table manuals and it gets little or no info on the topic.
thanx

Welcome to the router forum.

Thank you for joining us, Steve.

There is no reason why a plunge router cannot be mounted in a table. In fact many members prefer to use a plunge router with the springs removed.

Steve, did you remove the sub base plate when you installed your router to the mounting plate?

ya for sure. however i was bottomin out the bit and then haulin it out a 1/16th. that didnt give me enough extention over the table top. i checked with frued canada. and they told me as long as 75percent of the bit shaft was in the collet i would be fine. it worked fine now. thanx

You may want to place a rubber grommet at the base of the collect (tipping my hat to Marc Sommerfeld, and you can by some from his online store). In this manner you can automatically set a consistent shank depth. I've used this for years on all of my routers.
