Default Triton

Hi
I just purchased a 3-1/4 Triton router. I use it on my router table.
The shaft auto-lock pin is engaged when the shaft is raised all the way up.
My problem is I can't raise it up enough to engage the locking pin. Is there an
adjustment I can make to get it to travel up another 3/8 "
I used the router a few times before and it worked ok.

Is it mounted under a plate in your table? Debris blocking full function? If mounted to a plate in your table it should raise up all the way to engage lock for collet.

Hi jlord
It's mounted under the Table, no debris. I took it from the table, and it still
doesn't engage

Do you have a remote switch for it?

If so make sure the router is turned off. The little plastic cover on the switch is over sized so that when the router is turned on it limits the depth of plunge so you can't accidentally bottom out the router. This way if the router is spinning and the lock pin tries to engage metal parts won't go flying.

I just had this experience about 2 weeks ago and started to take the whole router apart and discovered this little safety feature( or pita feature take your pick)


Hope this helped,

Chris

What he said. Been there, done that. Initiated a spirited debate if that PITA plastic cover should be removed (then the router becomes one of the Freuds in this respect).

Thanks Chris, you hit the nail right on the head. I knew that but got flustered when it didn't work. As soon as I read your reply I knew that was it.
Thanks to all.
