It is amazing how even companies producing high quality products like Incra can make a basic design error. I almost did not buy the Triton on the basis of someone saying that the raising handle can be a pain and you need to be double jointed to use the rotating lift knob. When I actually looked at their setup it soon became obvious that the problems were self inflicted, the lifting hole was at the 2 O'clock position and therefore the knob was at the rear. All they needed to do was refit the insert plate 180° and the lifting hole was now at the 8 O'clock position.I managed to get Incra to change the plate design, it now comes with the pre drilled hole for the Trend winding handle and the fixing holes have been swivelled so the winder is forward of the fence line.
On a similar note regarding the Jessem prestige lifter, how is it leveled? I have a Kreg table with the four leveling jacks in the corners adjusted from below the table, would I continue to use these?
