If you plan to keep the router in your table, you probably want to focus in on a fixed router setup. Just my two cents. As others have mentioned, some routers have a kit where the motor can switch between a fixed and plunge base. This way you get the luxury of both types, but only need to purchase one router. Personally I have a Bosch router that sits in my table and a Porter-Cable router that I use free hand. I have two bases for the Porter-Cable router (fixed and plunge). I use the fixed base primarily with my dovetail jig. I use the plunge base primarily for mortises and the like. To each his own. Good luck.
