- Triton TRA001 3-1/4-HorsePower 1/2-Inch Precision Router
- Brand: Triton | Category: Routers
I purchased the Triton 3 1/4 HP back in April of this year at the Houston Woodworking Show. I didn’t have a chance to use until just a few weeks ago. I loved the action while using the plunge and the soft start made it easy to handle and manuver. Having the variable speed made it easy when using the larger bits for raised panels. I currently have it mounted on my router table and while although I wish I had the hand crank to raise and lower the bit, I make do adjusting under the table. The safety feature of not being able to raise the spindle into the lock position unless the power switch is in the off position is actually a good thing. Safety first. I give a five star rating because so far it has done everything I have needed it to do and give me excellent results when used correctly.
