At last, a MUSCLECHUCK for the early TRITON routers
I recently received a #11 Musclechuck which had been on order for many months and I am delighted to tell you that it has turned my early version of the Triton TRA001 that I have under the table from an excellent table router to a BRILLIANT one! The photo clearly shows that no longer is a cranked spanner required, the MUSCLECHUCK protrudes well clear of the table and the bit is securely locked by just one half turn of a 4mm ball end Allen key. I have produced a great deal of router dust in testing and the overall performance is at least as good as if not slightly better than the original collet. The #11 Musclechuck is a direct replacement for the original collet, out with the old and in with the new, no tools required! My understanding is that there was a big waiting list for this chuck, built up once Mike announced that it was being designed, so perhaps a prompt order with a 5% discount via the forum might be a good idea. Before anyone suggests that I'm on commission, let me assure you that I am not, I'm simply extremely enthusiastic about this tool which, because routers are my main tool, has made life so much easier.
