pvsekaran Thank You so much for the suggestion. I tied both the switches with the cable tie and installed a separate switch to control the power supply. It works for me . I will post some photos later so that it can be useful for new woodworkers like me.

jw2170 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...

kywoodchopper 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

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.

jw2170 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......
