Hi all

Just seen a Triton router for the first time today. When used as a hand held router it does not even come close to the Porter Cable BUT this baby is made for a table.

The fine height adjuster is absolutely SUPERB and easy to use + there is a course adjuster on the main handle that allows one to quickly wind the router up until the collet is proud of the table for easy bit changing. Ohh, and the spindle automatically locks when the collet is proud the table making bit changing a one hand process without that awkward grapling under the table.

Dust extracton is well thought out and manufactured too.

If you're thinking of a new router for christmas that will spend most of it's time in a table, then look no further!!


Now, do I get the Incra or the Triton to improve my router table????

Or a Woodrat so you wouldn't need either...?


Cheers, Alf

cost of both together about equals (£100 LESS THAN) a rat!!

Up the proverbial creek
P'shaw! Neither of them would have solved the problem of milling a sliding dovetail on a 12.5deg bevelled edge like I was doing on the 'Rat this morning.


Cheers, Alf

Much as I hate to drag this back on topic :wink:, there is a very in-depth review of the Triton here in case anyone is interested.

So how long have you been suffering from delusions, Tony?
Ohh, a couple of hours now !!

For what it's worth, I went for the Incra Ultra 24 in the end but apparently I have to wait another 12 days before I am allowed to use it!!!! VERY unfair :(

If there is anyone from the Woodrat company on here, I would have chosen one of these instead if you priced it realistically (about 1/2 what it currently sells for) :twisted:
