Hi Mike

Thanks and your welcome
If you are going to remount the router it would be a good time to drill and tap a hole for a safety /start pin at the same time.. they do come in handy and a real must for free hand work on the table..

I later learned from Joe that he can pre-drill the plate for certain routers such as the Triton - evidently it's a frequently used router for this type of setup.

Edit: Bob, after looking through the link you provided (what a great crank handle modification by the way, I will probably end up doing something like that) and seeing some pictures of other Triton mounting configurations, I see why you asked about the mounting hole. Had I rotated the router about 90 degrees counter clockwise, I could have a more forward position for the crank arm.
