The accessories that you get with the Triton are very good, the best I had seen at the time of buying.

At the minute the router is held under the table by two of the small screws that hold the nylon base and two other screws which are about 1/2 inch longer which should do until I get the screws from PTS.

"The fact that the routers are highly thought of as table machines means that many more people bump into this "problem," but I'm not sure it's realistic to think that they should be supplied with "compromise parts" in the form of screws. Triton do supply all sorts of adapters and clamps to fit most other routers under their own table, but fitting their own router under someone else's table, flap, or whatever, is - I believe - down to the designer/user of said table, etc. as it would be with any other make."

The screws are a bit hard to find but I would agree with you in what you said. Triton already have a good selection of accessories which come as standard (i think) and if someone is to make a router table rather than buy one they should expect some problems along the way.

Eric, I sent you a PM about the baseplate. The keyhole domed bolts can be completely removed - re-fit when you want to use the metal baseplate/fence.

Send me your mailing address by PM. Tell me if you want Posidrive (+) or Allen key heads and I'll see what I've got left.

Why not just use the Quick release screws that the triton has on it. I replaced mine with a set of M6 bolts that were slightly shorter to alow it to tighten. Then I just countersunk them into my base plate:

Apologies for reviving an old post but I'm trying to get going on a router table quickly and cheaply.

If I understand correctly you used the two holes for the extended baseplate to screw 2 M6 bolts into to mount into your table?

How did that work out for you? Was it stable and secure? First timer so a bit nervous. Also I just bought some M6 but they don't thread into the hole which seems larger on my MOF 001, maybe it's different to the TRA001?

Cheers in advance
