Default New at using guide bushings

I'm a newbie at routing, I bought a new triton, and made a table to mount it, did very well on a large project. Q is, I have an old PC 6931 with plunge base, (bought at auction 5+ yrs ago) works except on/off switch won't stay on. Should I fix the switch and dedicate the PC for plunge work, and keep the Triton mounted? Several other posts have me thinking the PC is superior for guide bushing work, I guess they set the standard. Also, the switch is a toggle, do I need original PC part, or is an off the shelf switch ok?

Hi Carl, I would have the switch repaired and use the PC693 for hand held and plunge use.

I would keep the Triton in the table, although it can also be used hand held if required.

I agree with James replace the switch & use hand held.

Carl, we do not all consider ourselves as experts...

We just try and be altruistic, and help where we can.
