Default centring kit

I am trying to purchase a Rousseau centring kit to mount a Triton router to a Freud table plate Up to now I'm not even sure where to get one in Canada or shipped to Canada. Anyway. I wondered if the marking studs that screw into the router base will fit the Triton router. Rousseau give a list of models they make kits for but Triton is not even listed. Help !!! Al.

Hi Al,

I believe the PC7518 and a Milwaukee? router have the same hole settings as the Triton.

If they are listed, use those settings.

Once you have the router attached to the plate, you can use 5/16" ID guide bush to set the centre. Use a 1/4" drill bit in a 1/4" collet.

If you do not intend to use guide bushings in the plate, then centering to /1000" is not all that important...

Al try to pick up a Dewalt centering kit locally. They just use a cone to center the router in your plate. Quick, easy, and cheap.

The Triton plate screw holes are exactly the same as the PC 7518 router. Use that kit and you're good to go.

On the same centers (screw hole circle) but not the same screw.

Hi Asim. The cost to me in Canada was around $6.00 plus postage direct from Rousseau. I can't say what the cost to you would be. The problem for me is that they don't make a kit for the Triton router at this time. Al.
