|paduke||Ditto what harry said. My biggest critique of my Tritons was the shaft lock/ switch lockout safety feature. It was a PITA until I bought muscle chucks for them. They make bit changes a breeze Unplug router raise router the muscle chuck protrudes enough to change bits before the shaft lock|

|jw2170||My TRA001 and TRB001 have been faultless. No need to change. All my table work is done with the Triton...|

Other than that I made no changes to the router and have used it extensively since completing the table last spring.

Several WEB sites have them on sale, I just purchased one from Rockler last month. I do have a question for people that have a Triton router in an enclosed router table with dust collection. Do you remove the plastic shields or do you leave them on? Removing them makes sense to me because with them on the some dust will remain inside the plastic shields. |

I can't add much more than what has already been said... |
Mine is mounted in a Bosch 1181 table (Craftsman) at an angle so that the coarse and fine adjustment are real handy for my left hand. Have not missed the above table adjustment but it's in the future.
It's amazing to see it cut a raised panel without a murmur...
One owner I know free hands raised panels with it...
Dust collection is excellent with fence installed shop vac and dust deputy. The base dust port works great with the Bosch vac hose for those pesky dado/groove cuts.

As with most routers, you have to reach under the table to lock/unlock the spindle. Very important if you don't want the possibility of spindle creep messing up your cut.
I have used it many times, and with it shut off, I don't have to look under the table. I can feel the lock handle and operate it with no problem. The crank makes it nice to raise the spindle above the table, and it locks in place so only one wrench is needed to change bits. I like that.
Here is some reading material I have collected if your are interested.
