Angry Triton Router Warenty

Hello everyone, this is my first post.

My Triton Router burt up a few weeks ago, it is only 6 months old and I have not used that much. I returned it to Busybee Tools. I was told they would send it back to Triton and they would fix it or replace it. I called Busybee back after 3 weeks of not hearing anything, now I just found out that Triton has been sold off to a US company and at the moment they are not recieving any shipments from Busybee. I talk to the new company and I can send it direct but shipping would cost me ~$40-$50 each way.

Does anyone have any contacts of someone at Triton that can help me.

I was cutting a 1/2" grove 3/4" deep in 30' of 2x4's when the router began to smoke. This realy sucks as I need my router ASAP

I can't help you with your problem John but being a happy Triton user I'm intrigued as to how the problem arose. Unfortunately, your profile doesn't state your wood working experience. I wonder if you routed the groove in one pass and if you're familiar with listening to the router, the sound, once you are familiar with it tells you when it's being over-driven either through too deep a cut or feeding too fast or both.

I been using a router for many years. The cut was in soft lumber and definetly not something that should have gave the router a problem. Speed was slow and the cut was with a brand new 1/2" frued bit not more then 3/4" deep.
