    New hip anybody?

    50% of men who have the epidural have difficulty passing urine during the early hours of recovery. A catheter will prevent any discomfort, inserted post anaesthetic, as I know from personal experience - one hip without, the second with.

    Your experience with either the Triton MOF001 or TRA001 router?

    These routers are built for inverted (table-mounted) use, with the ability to use hand-held. The plunge spring is designed to be removed for inverted use, hence the bayonet spring cap. Removing the spring is required for table-mounted operation (see manual) and the spring cap should be left off...

    Jet Washers

    I've had three Nilfisk over the years, but - thank goodness - I then bought a Kranzle HD7/122 TS. It's continuously rated, so won't trip any overheat switches, as the Nilfisks regularly did. It's extremely well-built (22kgs) and very robust, maximum pressure 135 bar. I store it on my garage...

    UJK Router Elevator Needs Avoiding

    They’re not designed specifically for table use. Bit changing uses a manual lock, as I recall, so the situation wouldn’t arise. Triton was a better design and I think Festool has a comparable lock.

    UJK Router Elevator Needs Avoiding

    Doug, the comment I made about collet extensions is not just my opinion, it's also physics. The longer the shaft, the more any run-out is magnified. The greater the runout, the more wear on the bearings. If there is an extension that's perfectly balanced and runs true, the latter still applies...

    UJK Router Elevator Needs Avoiding

    Fitting a Triton to a router lift is a complete waste of time and money, plus you would lose cutting depth. Some would use a collet extender to restore depth of cut, a dangerous way to cause balance, stability, runout and bearing life reduction issues. The large Triton is designed for table use...

    Advice on Kitchen Cabinet Furniture Doodads

    Get the best hardware you can afford - when cabinets look tired it's usually because the doors have sagged. I've used both Blum and Hafele with success. Expensive, but the best in the long-term.

    Argee's Workshop

    Due to deteriorating health, I am selling the contents of my workshop. Nothing can (or will be able to) be posted, so it will mean collecting from Crowborough, East Sussex, if you're interested. The scroll saw has gone and I won't be selling either my Makita compound mitre saw, or my Triton...

    Triton 2000W Router problem

    foxhunter, you really need to change over to the newer collet chuck assembly. Here's how: Chuck Assembly Removal and Replacement The procedure is the same, no matter what style or type of chuck assembly is fitted. It is carried out with the router removed from the table. Disconnect power cord...
