    Sorry but no experience here.

    You could set up your router sled outdoors.

    You propose to make a router out of a lawn mower? I could come to WNY to see that in operation.

    How about clamping two blocks of wood to the bench with a hole in each. Paint one side then turn by hand. If one block is heavy it won't need a clamp. You can change spindles quickly.
