Default TRA001 and Muscle chuck

I have just got a TRA001 router with only a half inch collet, will the Musclechuck fit this router. And save me buying a 1/4" collet.

Barrie, The Musclechuck to fit the Triton TRA001 will most likely be called the Type 8 and should be available in about 3 months. As soon as they are available Martin at Woodrat.com will have them for our UK members. Martin will honor the 5% routerforums discount if you call in your order.

Harry!!!! What a great little extension! I am certainly convinced....where do I place my order? Seriously! I am in Western Australia, and would really like to get one. I have a Makita 3600BR, so will the Musclechuck fit? If so, please get back to me and we'll organise delivery!
Thanks, Andrew Bauld.

Mike in all the years I have used routers I have never seen anything that made me think the cutter had moved, of course I cannot say that they have not ever moved as it could have happened but I just have never seen anything that looked like movement to me, I have always given them a good tighten up, as I said before, I think there are a few items in the USA that should sell OK over here, the prices look OK to me, the killer is the freight, I get a DVD from Amazon.UK shipped here for about $4au, I tried to get one from the USA and the freight was$15US, that is rude so I cancelled it. American Woodworker sends me their weekly update and I thought that I would buy the 2012 DVD so I ordered it, even though every new update still had the promotion to buy the 2012DVD at the bottom they never sent it so I cancelled that as well and the freight was over$15US so it is not easy to buy a single item from the USA. Since I have been looking on the US sites I have seen quite a few things that should sell over here to the Hobby market as well as to professionals but bringing them over one at a time makes them too expensive, the persons who should be buying them don't seem to be doing it so they may think that there is not a big enough market over here, still maybe I get to the USA myself one day and I will buy a few things while I am there.

Sorry Andrew the MUSCLECHUCK will not fit the 3600 but let's face it, it is a pretty old model, the one that I have is permanently mounted on skis where it's fixed speed isn't a problem.I'm patiently waiting for a MUSCLECHUCK to be introduced for the Makita RP2301FC so that I can put my well used 3612C on the skis and pension off the 3600.

Neville, if you browse the various web sites like Woodcraft, Rockler, Infinity Cutting Tools, Sommerfelds and figure out the items you want I will help you with shipping. Both Harry and James have ordered items which I repacked and sent to them.

Quick service on my MuscleChuck order. I ordered it on Friday (June 28) and got it on Tuesday (July 2). Opened the package, installed it, and put it to work. Life if good.
