I typically would buy something like that, particularly if there is value in a bundle.

Two thoughts…

You won’t want a router lift with the Triton, but there’s no guarantee that you won’t get an actual lift at some point and use your PC instead. IMHO, a dedicated router lift will likely be a little more precise than the Triton alone (from what I’ve heard). It doesn’t change much in your purchasing decision (you can match the lift with the same plate size), but others reading this should think about such things.

Regardless, I’d stay away from the phenolic. Even the inserts will sag…mine do. I’ve played with the Incra magnalock inserts before…they ain’t goin’ nowhere. I will be upgrading my Rockler FX lift to an Incra lift very soon…it’s hard not to like anything that Incra does.

Oh, and if you have the LS positioner, then that’s a large router table top…the extra $99 seems like a really good value to me.
