boxedin I've seen several threads elsewhere where some owners claimed that they had problems with their cranks turning with difficulty and then breaking. In my experience, the hole in the table router plate needs to be plumb with the crank-insertion hole in the router. If one takes the time to locate the hole properly and drill it right, then the crank turns as smoothly as if it were greased lightning ;-) I love it as I didn't have to buy anything extra for it :-)

Mike Yes Dick, the mounting holes for the PC 7518, Triton TRA-001 and the Milwaukee 5625-20 are the same pattern. Anyone with the Triton or Milwaukee will have to drill the through the table adjustment hole for their router.

Willway I believe Mike stated in his post on the large routers he tested over the summer, that the PC bases are the same as the Triton.

Just a heads up, if you are considering one, Sommerfeld's Tools for Wood has them for $199.00. Best price we could find anywhere, and it includes shipping.

Now to find the time to build a table... and decide whether to go stand-alone or hang it on the table saw... decisions, decisions!

At least I can get plenty of ideas from this forum, so thanks to all who have posted their table builds.

TRC001 with winder

aeb430 I just got the router from my local store. It is the TRC001 and it has the above table adjustment. Now all I need is to build my table.

Thanks all for your comments.

chickenslippers Hi mine is the TRB001 (UK version of the TRC001)with above table adjustment.

I built my own table and used the Veritas table plate, I had to drill the plate to suit but the instructions were clear enough that it worked first time no probs. The downside is there are no removable inserts.

Cheers, Si

I think the US model was the TRC001 (110V)

I believe the current model TRA001 (110V) available in the US has the winder.
Hi James,
The current model with the winder for above table adjustment is the TRC001. I double checked my router in the table. The tag say's TRC001. True a 240v model is not sold here as we use 110v.
