Default Triton router hookup.

Is it possible to turn my Triton router on/off from a switch rather than the switch on the router?

Dan, while you can switch your router from a remote switch you must still operate the switch to allow your router to raise all the way and lock in position for bit changes.

Hi Dan, I opened the switch cover and removed the spring and pin that allows me to plug the router into a switch (either a power strip or a regular light switch type switch) on the outside of the router table. I am also able to raise the router high enough to change the bits without any problem. I just went into my shop and raised the bit high enough and the shaft locked. Malcolm / Kentucky USA

Welcome to the forum Dan, here was I thinking that I'm the oldest member at 80!
As you can see, my table mounted Triton is plugged into a table mounted switched outlet BUT, I wouldn't dream of bypassing the router's safety interlock.
