mount a hand held router?

HI y'all. So my friend gave me tuis old but super sturdy router that weighs like a ton and I was wondering if it was posible to mount it upside down on a table and turn it into a table one. Does that make any sense?

Almost all routers in tables are regular routers.
What brand and model router is it?
You could just remove the base and bolt it under a table, or get a router plate to mount the router, then put the plate in a table Most common method.) A lot of router plates, can be bought, predrilled for a certain router.
If you just mount it to a table, without a removable plate, bit changes could be a problem.
