I just joined this forum - I was looking for information on a Triton 9 Amp, Midi-Plunge Router, I ordered it and it should arrive the 7th of September.

I want to rebuild my Router Table in a fold down bench, this Router lets you adjust and change bits from the top of the table.

I don't really need a new Router, I have five of then all sizes, two of them need to be rebuilt.

Thanks for the information I have from you all. BJB

Hi Bill - Welcome to the forum
I don't know much about the 9amp Triton either. The only review I have seen is on Amazon and it wasn't to positive. I'm kinda interested as it looks like a decent alternative to the deWalt 611 plunge. I'm thinking it may be a little light duty for a router table but that's just my opinion. That depends, of course, on what you're goals for the table are. That Sears $120 combo kit offers above table adjustments in a 2 HP machine. I'm not a big Craftsman fan but this one appears to be an abberation from what they have been selling.

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

HI BJ

I think it should work out well for you the real plus it can take on the 1/4" shanks bits and the 1/2" bits that many low power routers can't do..and it's only 8.4 lbs.
Did you get it for the sale price of 99.oo dollars.

Triton 9 Amp, Midi-Plunge Router
Amazon.com: Triton JOF001 1/2-Inch 1-1/3 HP Plunge Router: Home Improvement

From the Manufacturer
The Triton J0F001 1.33 HP Plunge Router features many award winning performance innovations. The convenience of the ability to change bits without taking the router out of the table or reaching underneath the table is a Triton exclusive. The unique through-base allows fast and easy bit changes with one wrench. The patented micro height adjustment knob and turret stops provide accuracy and repeatability. The superior dust collection and air flow design provide maximum suction and cutting clarity. Includes a winding handle for table mounted height adjusting, a multi function premium fence with circle cutter, a premium chrome extended base plate, 1/4-Inch collet and 1/2-Inch collet, and a bit changing wrench.

Thank You for the nice welcome. This unit is a One and 1/3 HP, it is a small unit, but I like the easy changing bits and height adjustments. I will post a report when I receive the unit.
