Do a good amount of research into what tools you'll need versus what tools you think you need. Many shop shelves are loaded with tools used once and never again.

Default Triton Giveaway

Woodworking is a fascinating hobby & having said that, before you leap in- READ. The internet is a treasure trove of information & read up to understand, what you plan to do and its pitfalls. The knowledge and experience gained by our colleagues is easily available for us to gainfully use and better our skills. Tools are to be respected and safety always kept topmost. Patience is a virtue badly needed in this hobby. Nothing comes easy, perseverance and hard work form the bedrock of this fascinating hobby.

I am going to push for dust collection, which may be overlooked by many. It is very important, especially if you want to be able to do woodworking long term. The finer the dust, the more important it becomes.

"It's just a hardened oz or two of metal, sharpened to a razor edge, spinning at 24,000 rpm.....what could go wrong?"

Work in a well lit shop and keep dust at a minimum.

First and foremost, be safe. Avail your self of help from forums such as this one and the many how to videos that are out there. Become a student of your woodworking adventure and stay in learner mode.

Lastly have fun and enjoy what you have created.

that's all I have to say about that!!!

A good start would be to read Bill Hylton's "Woodworking with the Router".

Happy Routering

Don't procrastinate.
Make something even if it's not perfect.
Learn from your mistakes and enjoy the process!
After all, wood DOES grow on trees.

Safety First. Eyes, Ears, Hand, and Dust.
Take care of these items first and the router will do the job.

New woodworkers should develop the habit of "Giving it TRY". When you see something of interest, try to do it yourself. We learn to do better work by doing the work again and again. We are not wasting time and materials but rather are investing that time and material to learn and prefect the skill and technique necessary to accomplish the fulfillment of our desires. Always try to do the more difficult of two different methods so your skills are allways improving.

Whilst not entering this promotion, I reckon that it is a great idea and joining forces with Triton is an even greater idea. Since fitting a TRA001 under my table quite some years ago I haven't regretted it for a moment.
