What if you made your bracket threaded (fasten a nut to the bracket?) and forgo the t-nut? Also, move your lock nut to the bottom side as well.

Then, you can turn the big handle below the bracket to adjust height, and tighten the locknut from below as well.

Not enough meat in the bracket to thread it
Not sure how I can fasten that
I need the end of the screw to be attached to the router table body otherwise the board will move

The top nut must be fastened to the bracket in order to make the adjustment. If the bracket is thick enough you could tap some threads in it and eliminate the top nut and use the bottom nut to secure the adjustment. Welding or adhering the nut to the top of the bracket would also work.

See the above answer
Another method would be to cut a piece of plywood the size of the bracket bottom fasten it with screws to the bracket and install a T-Nut in it. Keep the bottom nut on the adjuster and tighten it after the adjustment is made.

this is what I am considering, run two traversal pieces of (ply)wood or metal and screw then to the brackets.
That will reinforce everything and keep them level with the opposite braket
Then do what you said like below
