Question Triton adjusting and setting

I am posting this as a question from another forum I read. The person was mentioning they use the plunge router lock after setting the height of there bit. I have not done this in the 10-15 times I have used my new Triton and was curious if others do this or just don't bother and the bit stays at the height set without any problems.

If you can't read it Scribble wrote it.

I prefer to lock mine. One reason I have it is my old setup would drift down during a cut. Locking makes certain there are no surprises.

Mine drifts down if I don't lock it. When I unlock it after a cut, the bit always falls. I think it's due to the elevation screw vibrating down during operation. I've thought of putting a lighter plunge spring in that will hold the elevation screw in place better.

Makes sense as a backup. It's easy to do and ensures there bit stays at that height. You might see more value to it after it slips once.
