Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Yes the 1827 router can be mounted to a router table and the base can be locked however we would recommend using a fixed base router in a router table. We do have a combo kit model 1830 that comes with both a fixed base and the plunge base:

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. If you plan to use a router table a fixed base router would be best. If you are planning to use the router by hand then we would recommend a plunge base. We also offer a combo set Skil model 1830 that comes with both the fixed and plunge base then you can leave the fixed base installed in a router table and just remove the motor to use the plunge base for hand routing.

Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst product ever I had to return this router within 30 days because the plunger stopped working properly. I exchanged it for a new one and had the same problem within a couple of weeks, This product is worthless. DO NOT BUY. I am a weekend hobbyist and was using this product very little, not overworked by any means. Thanks to Home Depot the credited my money back. February 10, 2016
