Default Triton MOF001

Hello all, I really like the look of the triton mof001 as it meets all my needs but the information on the internet can be misleading. This router comes with a 1/4 collet as standard but can a 1/2 be purchased, fitted and used properly, and safely?

Thank you for confirming that for me. Its seems as i am uk based, no website supplies the 1/2 collet with purchase. Only a 1/4 so i guess ill have to buy one separately.

Mate, whoever is advising you this router is very wrong. Combined with the Triton router table, this most versatile machine and is only limited by the skill of the operator what this machine can do.
Here is the full specification:

I have been using this router for more than 10 years and I am attaching a few items I have constructed on this router:

The way that I read this UK parts price list, the router comes with a 1/2" chuck and reducers are available for 6, 8 and 12mm.
I have a firm opinion on the Triton routers, they were designed for table use and excel there but for hand held plunge routing there are far better choices. If this is to be your first router I would suggest that if it's for table mounting, the TRA001 would be a better choice, the extra horsepower will enable it to do anything that is asked of it now and in the future.

Whilst I'm envious of your fine work I really don't see that a great deal of routing has been involved.

As I am using the router table mounted and using the copying bit and template, just about every flat part was made on this router. Also most semi-finished parts, tracks etc. where made from material firstly shaped on the router. In fact, I can't think of a part that at some stage of manufacture did not pass through the router.

I and I'm sure that all members, especially those like me who consider ourselves routologists would genuinely love to see photographs taken during the making of some of these wonderful projects.
