Topic tags/keywords: table saw router table triton router

So I got the 2 1/4 triton and the rousseau plate, and installed them in my table saw extension. heading to the store today for a 20 amp switch and the necessaries to make sure sure i don’t have to go under the table to switch it on.

i know the rousseau plate has a slight grade to it.. it rises up a bit in the middle. does anyone have this plate, and have you used mated bit sets with it? your results?

thanks.

Josh,

I’ve used the Rousseau plate in two other r.ts. I’ve built, and never had a problem with either one. In fact, I’ve still got a brand new one in the package, unopened. The last r.t I built was the NYW by Norm, and I used a Rockler metal plate in that one. But…the Rousseau will hold up to anything you throw at it. I had (have ) a Hitachi M12V mounted to mine, and no problems. I like it for the fact you can remove the inserts easily, and go up to panel raising bits, if needed. For my $$$$, the Rousseau is a good insert…just not as strong as the metal ones, but will serve you well.

I’ve had mine for over 5 years with a R1100 hanging on it and no problems.

Very interested in your convert to delta rails and fence.. The originals still work on mine, but I’d love a Bayes fence and plan on taking off a wing (or adding onto it) for a router table
