Bob, Bosch recommends that the 1613EVS not be used in a router table; in fact the only "plunge bodied" router they do recommend for table use is the 1619EVS. The 1613EVS is a great router for hand held or ski jig use. You can see me cutting out a top for a mounting plate with my 1613EVS in the attached photo.
If you want Bosch quality in a lift your best bet is to buy a 1617EVS motor only from CPO. This motor will work with most router lifts so you get your choice of features in a lift. The 1617EVS uses the same collets/nuts and wrenches as the 1613EVS. You can also use the new RA1152 offset wrenches with both models. I use and highly recommend the Type 4 Musclechuck for Bosch routers.
