Carl, changing to a different table may alter some of the methods you work with but the results will be the same. Nothing but practice improves your routing. Making mistakes, noticing them and taking steps to improve your skills is all it takes. The first box I built with simple rabbit joint construction had some gaps in the seams. Now I can make them with tight fitting joints because I built a bunch of them to practice.
Which features of the two tables you mentioned appeal to you? The lift? The fence adjustment? Something else? Both choices are popular with forum members. Only you can decide which is best for the way you prefer to work.
