I bought a 31/4” panel raising bit to use in my router table… But when I mounted it the big Triton router, the base of the router is too small for the bit to pass through… What brand of router would work for this?

I have the same Triton router and I have it mounted in my table. You should be able to take the base plate off, remount it in the table plate and then there is plenty of space for the large bits.

You have to make another base plate w/ a larger hole. This is a common thing and not too hard. Are you using it on a router table?

When mounting the Triton in a router table your supposed to remove the factory installed base plate. Then the limiting factor would be the opening in the router table mounting plate. I just measured the opening in my table plate and it’s 3-7/16”

Yes I removed the plastic base plate… But the opening in thge router base is only 3 1/8”... the mounting plate is fine, it’s the base of the router…

My guess is you have the 2 1/4 HP version of the triton, in which case I’d not spin a panel raiser in it anyway.
A vertical panel raiser can be spun easily in that router.

why don’t you add some 3/4 plywood on the top with a bigger hole?

Have your say...
