    Shouldn't the flat side of the plunge base be against the fence? It looks like the rounded side is against the fence and you have the flat side facing out towards the camera. Another router tip is to have a second router dedicated to your router table so you don't have to bother with mounting and unmounting when you need to use it free handed.

    it's strange how you pulled the cable out of the socket
