I would go with the bigger motor (the 13 amp, usually labeled 2 1/4 HP) for your first option. I’m only familiar with the Milwaukee fixed base and the Triton relative to table mounts. The Milwaukee is very good, but the Triton has above the table access that I think you won’t find on the others. Of course, the Triton is a plunge only router…so pulling it out for handheld use might be a lot more cumbersome. I kinda like your plan B, get a larger router for the table and use the 690 for handheld use…they are very good for that service. Throw the Milwaukee 5625 into your considerations for a big router is you go that way.
