LOL you and I agree on the brake for the router, I absolutely will not buy a
cordless drill with out a brake. When driving screws "in or out" I
absolutely want the drill to stop turning when I let up on the trigger.
The clutch does not always work well when removing a screw. I absolutely do
not use it as a safety feature.
I've only had it a few months and not used it very much in that time. It's
my first drill with a brake, or any woodworking tool with a brake for that
matter. Driving screws, I can envision a use for the brake so you don't go
too deep, but I've never had any problem with the brake-less drill when
removing screws. I suppose I'll get used to it in time.
I don't know of any router that cannot be used on a router table. That said
different style routers are better suited for router table use. Typically
the best routers to use are the newer style combo routers that work as a
plunge or fixed base router all in one. The Triton router is an example of
this. IIRC PC has a router that falls in this category and perhaps other
brands as well.
Next would be the fixed base with a router lift of some type followed by
just a fixed base router and finally a plunge router.
For the most part any of the styles will perform the same "once adjusted".
Ease of accurate adjustments is what it is all about when choosing a router
for the router table.
