I am looking for a router plate for my Triton 3 1/4HP Plunge Router. This router will be dedicated to a table so I need a plate that has all the necessary screw holes and a hole for the built in crank.

Thanks

Don’t know any with the hole for the above table adjustment. But I just ordered an Incra aluminum plate from Incremental tools. It comes with the mounting holes drilled for the Triton. I was flipping a coin between the Incra and the Woodpecker plate… But, I like the magnalock rings that come with the Incra vs. the twist lock rings with the Woodpecker. Also, the Incra is $10 cheaper… Double plus Incramental tools is having a 10% off sale coming up next week… (I had problems completing my internet order and left a message with the company yesterday morning (Saturday) . Got a call back from the President of the company a few hours later, even though it was his day off, he fixed the order, corrected a miter slot, I had ordered the wrong one and said he’d honor a 10% off special that was coming up. Pretty outstanding service I think… I highly recommend them!!

Are you sure it’s a 3-1/4 Hp?
I am thinking you mean 2-1/4.
At any rate, take a look at the lee valley table inserts. You can easily drill a hole for the crank.

I think that I am going to go with a Rockler Aluminum Large plate blank and drill the mountin holes myself

This is a comment for Bob #2 and yellowtruck 75. The way horsepower ratings are determined is not standardized and is, at best, confusing. At worst, it is misleading. Sometimes horsepower is determined by a “dying state” scenario. They measure the force exerted when the motor is subject to an immovable object. For a split second the motor exerts a powerful force. This force is translated into a hp rating. It is a meaningless rating.

The only reliable measure of the power of your tool is the wattage it consumes under a sustained load. In theory, the power out equals the power in and wattage is the measure of how much power you are taking in. High powered routers are usually using about 2000 watts.

Richegreer, To the best of my knowledge Triton makes 2 routers.
One is rated at 3-1/4 hp and the other at 2-1/4 hp.
The 2-1/4 hp model is the only one with the built in crank bit lift.

Sorry if there was any confusion here.
p.s. you are right about hp ratings.

No Bob, the Triton 3 1/4 now comes with the above table crank… I think that is why there was a “shortage” of them lately as the new routers were being shipped.

Note the crank is referenced.

The ones being offered on Amazon and at Woodcraft now should all be with cranks. BUT, I would verify that that is what you are getting before ordering. I just got one a few weeks ago from Amazon that came with the crank. Looks like they just raised the price on Amazon to $283, Woodcraft is showing $269. I paid $269 with Amazon with free shipping…

Bob – it’s the same model number as before. new model starting 2010 now has above table crank like the 2-1/4 model.

this is why the 3-1/4 (1/2” precision router as they refer to it) was on sale at woodcraft a couple of months ago – they were clearing out the old stock, making room for the new model.

the new model has above table crank, upgraded plunge shafts, and a sealed power switch as the main upgrades.

EDIT:
you can see mine here (the TRC001):
