Default Trend Pivot Frame jig

This thing has dropped about $50 in the last couple of weeks. Don't know if it fits the T-4 either. Just an FYI

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Hi John,

You might like to change the title of this thread if you can.

The title says "Triton" but the ad refers to a Trend PFJ?

You Aussies are a sharp lot, Harry caught me too.... Must have had a brain cramp on that one....

I don't think I can edit the title, Maybe Mark or another admin type can.... Humble apologies.

I used to be pedantic and needed sizes and specs to confirm my design before manufacture. Experience will tell that you to use what you have to do the job. The bolts could be a larger dia, the rails whatever size you have, in plastic, metal or wood. Bob's is a good copy with what he knows are improvements. Collect a few pictures of the beast and have a go. If it works well, great, if not make adjustments to the design. I use solid bars rather than studding. My "wheels" are 1 piece, etc. Go for it. My major mistake was to make things too big and chunky. So strong enough.

Hi Bob

Thanks

No plans or drawings, sorry,I use the manual and a bit of math to get the specs..
I have updated it a bit with red knobs and solid longer rods.(5/16" diam.)see 2nd.link below, for quicker adjustment and so the router can slide on the rods easy.
Note....the T4 router works well for this jig,it has a 6mm hole drilled and taped in the base that many routers don't have,I used a 1/4-20 all thread and just recut the threads on one end to fit in the (6mm) hole in the base for cir.work..

What increase in speed did you achieve by changing to red knobs Bob?
