Shawn … just curious … where did you get the aluminum router plate?

I have been giving some thought to upgrading my router table and like what I read about the Triton.

You might find one of those long magnetic tool holder strips handier for holding that pin. Plus you can stick other metal accessories on it.

Sorry it took so long,
Dane I got the plate from Rocker works great.

Stumps can I call you stumps that’s a great idea didn’t think of that there. I was thinking of one on my lathe station will pick up an extra on for there too.

Again, nice job with the upgrades.
For the starting pin, if you have a tap set you can either tap the side of the cabiet directly for the pin or if you want for a better hold, use hard maple, tap a small piece and glue it to the cabinet. Another option is a threaded insert. Lots of options there. :-)

Can’t wait to see fence upgrades.

NiteWalker Thanks, I went with the threaded insert working great. I also got a suggestion for one of those magnetic bars. I might put one any if i am going back and forth between setups a lot and then keep it in the threaded insert for long term storage.
