Both size Tritons use the same baseplate. This is simple and allows the use of standard router bushings in the Triton rather than buying their bushings.

This is the baseplate you want, I think Woodcraft carries them. Sorry for the blurry pics.

Here is the PC plate next to the Triton plate.

You have to remove the ribs on the PC plate.

I used a drill bit to hold the plate centered while mounting.

Done.

What model PC router is that plate for (that photo is unreadable)? Woodcraft also sells a clear universal base plate that comes with a centering pin for about $30. It fits the PC, so it should work on the triton as well, and doesn’t require any modifications.

Cheers,
Brad

PS: I’ve seen them sold at other places as well

Not sure what PC router it’s from, at the time I was looking for the least expensive option.

Have your say...
