I’ve had a Triton 2-1/4 plunge router for a bit over a year, and used it almost exclusively under a router table (which is why I haven’t submitted a review yet—I dunno how well it works by hand).
In any case, the plunge “micro adjust” / table crank adjuster stopped working properly (would only go one way). I called them up, he immediately knew what was wrong and with no further questions arranged to ship me a replacement / exchange. I LOVE customer service like that.
The useful note—when using the normal plunge adjustment, there is a stop in the system. When using the micro/table adjuster, they apparently did not put a stop in, and sometimes (myself included) people using it under a table crank it all the way up when changing bits, and damage the gearing. He said they’ve had a few of these come in, and it should be fixed in the next design. In any case, his suggestion was simple: when changing bits, reach under the table and use the normal plunger handle to get it into collet locking position.
and yes, I will put in a review once I’ve used it by hand.
