Default beginning of routing for showpiece and toy making

I have recently bought a Bosch POF 1400 ACE plunge router. I want to mount on a router table. I would like to know how to have switch control without having to hold the power on/off switches

Hello Veera, welcome to the forum.

I have heard that some users clamp the trigger switch in the on position with a cable tie or a piece of velcro.

Do you need constant pressure on BOTH parts of the switch to operate?

You will need a separate on/off switch mounted on the table.

MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE ROUTER BEFORE MAKING ANY CUTTER CHANGES......

I don't have that brand, but my Triton router is made the same with the switch. I took the switch apart and there was a small spring and pin. I removed those. Now the router stays on all the time. I plug all of my table mounted routers either into a power strip or a toggle switch mounted on the outside of the router table for easy access. If I am going to use it hand-held (which I seldom do) I can pull the trigger to start and stop it. Hope this helps. Malcolm / Kentucky USA

Hi Malcolm, what model is your Triton?

Can you post a picture.

I have not seen a Triton router with a trigger switch.

The model is MOF001C. Here are photos of it. I have three of these that I got from Woodcraft. I consider them the best routers in the shop. Malcolm / Kentucky USA

Hi Malcolm, although that switch, from that photo seems slightly different to mine, I would not call that a 'trigger switch'.

To my mind, a trigger switch is built into the handle and is compressed by the fingers holding the handle - like the pistol grip on a hand gun..

Does your switch have the sliding lock to prevent accidental switching on?

I also have 2 Tritons - they are great...
