I just purchased a Craftsman Router Table. The router attaches directly to the table without the use of a drop-in plate. Does this mean that each time I change a bit, I will have to unscrew the router from the table? If that is the case, I am going to return the table. Thanks.

Hi: If you can't get to use your wrenches from the top of the table the only way would be to remove the router. I think you would be better off taking it back to Sears and getting another table with a place to drop in the router base plate. You could even build your own table and buy a base to mount into it.
That's my 2 cents worth, good luck. Woodnut65

My Craftsman allows me to change the bit without removing it, or raising it. I can loosen the collet from underneath and pull the bit straight up thru the opening in the table.
