To change bits on the MFK700 you have to remove the base. But doing so without hitting the router bit on the base just as it slides out is really difficult I find. Is there some magic technique to this?

If it's the vertical base insert the bit into one of your MFT or other dog holes. Push down on the base and lift straight up with the motor. I haven't had an issue.
