I just bought the Triton 2 1/2hp router for my portable routing needs. I have a dedicated 3 1/4hp PC motor for table use.
The main reason I went with it is for its dust collecting, and it has gotten some good reviews. I have yet to try it out though.
I would like to get a good base plate mainly for use with inserts, but it would likely stay on for the majority of my freehand use. Here are some base plates I came up with in searching. Most of what I found was stuff for sale, and not reviews on them though.
I would appreciate any input you have, either from first hand use, or just from looking yourself. If there are any other ideas then what I found, by all means, let's hear about them.
Lee Valley Adapter Base Plate.
Saw some good reviews, the price is right, and I can get it locally Pat Warner Precision Subbase Kit Pat Warner Offset Base
These two appear to be well made, and I like the ability to accurated center the base to the collet, great for dovetail jigs and the like. I also like the idea of an offset base, it would help on edge work, and really should not get in the way. A bit pricey, but hey if they are good.....
Rockler One Plate
I like the fact that you can leave the base plate on and add on various inserts and below base dust collection. Leigh Guidebush System
They have an adapter for my router, though I really don't see how it works. Are these for dedicating to the Leigh jig system. I don't have a dovetail jig yet, and it is between Leigh and Akeda as to which one I go for.
