I am shopping for a new router table and lift and am leaning heavily toward the Bench Dog Cast Iron table with Pro Fence and ProMaxRT lift. What I cannot figure out is, if it’s important to be able to change bits above the table (which it is to me), why is it OK for the router’s speed control to be under the table? I want access to everything without having to crawl on my hands and knees. Getting too old for that to be fun. I’m wondering about using an external router speed controller with a fixed speed router, i.e. PC 75192, which is otherwise the same as the variable speed PC 75182. The difference in router motor prices would or just about would pay for a good controller.
