Who needs a lift?

After starting a forum topic recently to solicit opinions about what type of variable-speed router I should buy to leave mounted in my table for the most part, I eventually decided to go with the Trtion MOF001KC 2 1/4 HP plunge router. I thought hard about going with a more powerful motor, but I decided that my needs at the present time just didn’t justify it. If I decide I need something bigger later on, I figured the 2 1/4 would still be a dandy machine to have around for handheld wo...

May be awesome in the table but there are two things it lacks as a plunge router

May be awesome in the table but there are two things it lacks as a plunge router

I am a new woodworker so everything I do is a new learning experience. This Triton is my first plunge router. It comes with a lot of accessories and its already a good price even with out the extras. It has some cool features like a selectable rack and pinion height adjustment for quick large increment hight changes. It comes with a handle for through the table height changes. It comes with a circle cutting jig and edge guide and a full set of bushing inserts. As a table router I imagin...

Triton 2 1/4hp plunger router

Triton 2 1/4hp plunger router

WOW! This was my Christmas present this year and I have been impressed every time I use this router. The construction of the tool is outstanding to say the least. The brushes are easy to access, the plunge is smooth and easy to control, the rack-and-pinion plunge is very groovy, even the depth turret is user friendly and easy to adjust. The depth stop itself is idiot-resistant and hasn’t slipped on me yet (unlike the Freud model). I didn’t know if I would like the one-wrench colle...

Problems with adjusting the height of the cutter

Problems with adjusting the height of the cutter

08-31-2009 09:52 AM by velocette | 5 comments »

I have the 3 1/4 HP Triton router and over time have been reading the reviews and note the main complaint is the under the table adjustment. In Australia where the Triton company started there is a large range of wood working accessories. The Triton router table provided easy access to the ratchet winder and the fine adjuster, there is also a dust collector bucket that has two inputs one for the table and one for the router and the bucket is attached via another hose to a vacuum cleaner. I...

Another full face shield

Another full face shield

Greg the Whodat just posted his new face shield.I didn’t want to hijack his review, so I’m posting my own. Greg’s shield is a good one and the Triton PRA001 is probably more expensive. But I wanted to explain some of its advantages. Triton saw good to include earmuffs and they’re good one. They can be locked out away from the head for when you want to hear something and when putting the headgear on and off.There is no option for front or back battery location. It...

Triton: Works and definitely worth the money - though can be hard to find.

Triton: Works and definitely worth the money - though can be hard to find.

I had read about various enclosed-air systems while setting up my shop. I knew I wanted one because I haven’t yet got a proper dust collection system in place and didn’t want to wait to do anything until I had one. I liked the look of the Triton Tools Power Respirator and read some positive reviews so I decided to get one. That was easier said than done. Many reviews are a few years old and the companies mentioned in them no longer sell the unit. One place I saw online has ...

Just to put this review into perspective I’d like to say that I’ve used it to break down 5 sheets of plywood and trim two door. This is not a comprehensive review just some thoughts to share. My 32 year old skillsaw has finally given up. It spent many years cutting through 2x lumber and plywood/osb. For the past 5 years I was just using to break down plywood to more manageable pieces. I’ve really looked hard at the Festool but I have a difficult time justifying the cost. I’m a hobbyist. ...
