Default Life was not meant to be easy,

so said one of our Prime ministers', and he wasn't wrong. Replacing a table router should only take an hour or so, replacing my overworked Makita with a new Triton took a lot longer as shown.

I've just been told that the word "niggles" might not be understood in the USA, it means annoyances.

Looks good Harry. Don't own a triton but it looks like a good router that will last you years. Do like that you can change the bits from the top make life easier. And the grinding of the metal hey some things you just have to adjust for.

Very good Harry!

That router sure looks like a real BRUTE to me... looks like it will do a great job for you for many years ahead.

Won't you keep your Makita and maybe dedicate it to other uses... like maybe Skiing?!

Have Fun,

Hi Harry

Looks like a nice router

Here's a small tip,, get your torch out ( not your flash light) put a bend in the wrench (spaner) to make it a offset wrench, it will help changing the bit..
To get under the router bit, like when you using a cove bit,panel bits,etc.

Like the one below ▼

Just a Note*** sommerfeldtools is now selling the same router with it's router table setup..

Doyle, I'm certain that people more qualified than me will hop in and guide you through the photo thing as they did for me.

Hi Harry

That's not cranked that's bent I mean cranked at two 90 deg. so it will go down under the bit you will see what I mean the 1st time you use one that's cranked on the 90deg.
