Triton Plunge Routing Question
I have a Triton 3.25 Hp router which I use mainly as a table router. I set it up for plunge routing to cut some mortice slots and I discovered that it would only cut down to 7/8 of an inch, (on the second pass) even though I could screw the stop nut down to a full inch. It turns out that the depth stop tube is hollow only up to 7/8 of an inch and that the end of the screw for the stop nut hits the end of the tube and it won't allow any deeper cut even though the depth scale shows 1 inch and the stop nuts screw down that far. Yes, I'm trying to route a full inch deep - in multiple passes.
Has anyone else experienced this? The simplest solution to me appears to be to cut about a quarter inch off of one of the stop nut screws. Does anyone have any other solution?
Another possibility is, is there an alternative plunge control attachment, a third party part that could be added on?
