Neville, besides the 1/2 turn to tighten or loosen your bits the Musclechuck has 4 times the holding power of a standard chuck. The extra 1/2" of depth is a nice bonus.

I've resolved some problems that were present when I produced the pdf so there is now a new version where the original one was.

You are correct about the burning at the corners as it is a routering sin to slow down, I have saved your pdf and I will look at that again but I don't see myself buying an extra chuck extension just now as the ones that I do have work quit OK, very nice presentation of your work.

Neville, delete your copy of the pdf and download the new, better version that I've just posted. Please believe me when I say once you have used a MUSCLECHUCK you will NEVER go back to using spanners, I give you my word.

I just dropped them an email to please let me know when they have them for the Triton. Perhaps they already do and I just overlooked it.

BTW Harry I wish you lived in Southern California, so I could just stand around in your shop for a couple days. I would be very quiet and hand you stuff as you worked

John D at Musclechuck got back to me before I could even post here on the forum.

I like that - A LOT! I mean I like a good product like anyone else, but service and response fires me up!

I will be buying from these guys.

Oh - John said it will be about 3 months on the Triton.

Thanks Harry,

I've looked into these before and never purchased one. Now that you have given the OK with your testing maybe I need to get one.

Mike, I'm not sure if you need an ER20 version but that is a Type 6.

As many routers as I have I may need more than one!

Thanks for the time you put into the write up. Great lesson.
