Modify a Bosch POF 1200 - Remove the legs and Base

Hello all
First post here so forgive if it has been asked (but I haven't found anything about it on the net to date)

I want to fit my Bosch POF 1200 under the table and remove the plunge mechanism. Has anybody modified there Bosch POF 1200 (or similar)?

Another option is to remove the whole base plate. There are two very small hollow type screws holding the legs to the base plate - Any idea how to undo these? They are not allen keys.

Thanks in advance

If you undo those roll pins , bee carefull! not to be in the way!
Spring is very likely to jump out!

Gav system should work , but a thin 1mm stell plate will waste less space.
(Yes it' s possible , reinforce it at both side of router- base.)
Some did it wit plywood that came around router body.
In most cases, the body is round around the shank that gives a second place to hold it.
Seen some good design by "Santé " on web site "les copeaux":

Still don' t know why so many routers got so little plunge.
I think the ones that make them don' t use them..
