Default Triton Guide Bushing Options

Greetings Everyone,

Been looking about at the wealth of info here and finally joined.
First of all, a big thanks to all you who keep this forum filled with great info....

OK ...I am looking at taking my routing to a new task and considered buying the Triton MOF001 to take on the job as it seems like from what I read to be a great router that will last a long while. However, I am a bit confuzeld when it comes to what guide bushings will work with it and I definitely do not need a $100 kit, just a 5/8 collar.

Anyone have any insights as to whether the typical PC 2 piece 5/8ths collar will work with it.....

I guess the other thought is to abandon the Triton for a similar PC? Thoughts?

Thanks!

Searching around, I can't find a third party PC adapter for the MOF001. Looks as if you'll have to get their TGA001 kit. Hopefully someone has an alternative, but I couldn't find one. I think part of it is the dust collection aspect of their kit. Triton really paid attention to the dust issue, including in this kit.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Hey Thanks for the reply desertrattom.....

So I have been digging around way too long but this is what I have come up with so far....
In the following thread...routerforums.com/guide-bushings-templates/11917-guide-bushings-triton-router
Post #9 Michael H Mentions:
"The TGA001 kit will not work with the 2-1/4 hp (MOF001) router. I purchased it for mine, thinking it would fit, but had to return it to Amazon.
FYI: The Triton routers have the same sub-base hole mounting pattern as the Porter Cable 7518 Speedmatic router. You can get a clear sub-base that accepts PC guide bushings (Pat Warner sells, IMO, the best . I think that the PC style bushings are the best way to go with the widest variety of diameter bushings."

So I dug this up on ebay (as his link no longer works):
Porter-Cable-base-plate-/173057843897?_trksid=p2349526.m4383.l4275.c10

*I had to remove URLs as I am not allowed to post them yet*


So in short it seems that Bobs my uncle....(unless there is something I do not yet see)

1. Pat Warner passed away ( may he rest in peace)
2. You can either buy or build your own PC adaptable base

Sometimes I get a sense that Triton tools are a work in progress. Make your own base seems the best answer so far.

That is what I did, Tom.

Used an Oak Park base plate on one Triton and a Home made plate on the other. (can take most common guide bushes....)
