Hi Jose, I have had the one pictured below that is over 12 years old and never had to lock or unlock the lift. It is the old side winder model.

Do you have DC both above and below the table? That is a must ,but router tables are a hard one to confine all the sawdust. Just about the time you think that you have done it, the next set up allows the chips to fly a different direction. I think making rabbets and dados are the hardest to contain, some people drill holes in the table top to pull the dust down, But I have found that is only a moderate solution as the chips find a way to fly.The idea of a loose insert plate with a router motor turning 18,000 rpms kinda scares me. The shroud sounds great as my setup does not pull sawdust worth a hoot.
