G'day Jim. Welcome to the forum.

Do you have the gray insert plate for the router table.

If so, the TRA001 will fit, no problems. My first router table was a Triton TRA001 (which I still use) mounted in a Triton RTA300 table.

Triton Tools | Saw Table | RTA300 | Precision Router Table

If you do not have the gray insert plate, can you show how your Ryobi is attached to the table?

Sorry James.I should have been more specific.The table top can be fitted to a mk3 bench and has a black rectangular mounting plate which has the ryobi attatched with clamps.I presume the grey plate you refer to is on the later model tops.PS on the stand it says Triton router and jigsaw stand.Hope this helps.Thank Jim

Hi Jim, a photo of your current set up would help.

Just want to check the table and insert plate.

However, from what an am seeing in my mind, the TRA001 should fit the plate, but you may have to move the clamps as the base on the TRA001 is fairly large.

Hi Jim...what James said is quite right. I had one of those router table-tops which went on the MK3, and the black plate has slots in it. Slide the clips all the way out to the outer edge of the plate, center the router with the included plastic disc and slide the clips back over the lip of the router's base-plate. Tighten them up and off you go. Trust me, it really is easy. The black plate is called a chassis, and it should have a black plastic slider on each corner, eight slots (for the jigsaw AND the router) and the big hole for the router bits. Any hassles, let me know and I'll try to help further.
Andrew.
