Triton had a lot of trouble getting a reliable wholesaler years ago, but have really cleaned that up and now are quite helpful. My suggestions were for the model with the crank. Hope you are able to get something working soon.

To follow something recent, go to the top of the page and click on active topics. You can search back through 2 weeks of posts using the options there. Once a week, you should get a long list of posts made during the prior week.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Robert, further to what Tom said, once you log in, you will see an item. “Subscriptions” along from your name in the welcome bar. Clicking on that will open a list of all threads on which you have posted, starting with the present thread.

Don’t forget what he said about removing the return spring - check the user manual for how to do that. The spring is strong enough to counteract the considerable weight of that router when used freehand - it will give you a good fight if you try to raise the router when mounted in the table.

Also, those Tritons have a button to “convert” from plunge to fixed-base type of operation - check the manual to be sure that it is in the correct position, and not sticking. I think it is a push-button type of thing.

For the Bosch, hang on another week or so until the Cape town service centre is open (if it is not already operational), and have them check it out. Take it along in its packaging - they may deal with it as if under warranty. Ryobi has done it for me more than once.

Default Triton and Bosch router problems

I want to thank you people who responded to promptly to my dilemma. I will certainly follow it up after ordering some dry lube. By the way, the Triton is a TRS001 (an old one I bought many years ago but removed from its sealed box only a few days ago) and it's 2000w, not 2400w. I am still a bit of a rube with these things.

Hi Robert, are the manuals still in the boxes of the Triton and the Bosch? If so, could you scan them and post them to the forum? The TRS001 manual is not available from the Triton website, and the POF1400 is not for sale in North America.
1. It may assist others to help you with your current problem.
2. it may help others with other issues.
I note that somebody had TRS001 issues in 2013 on the forum, but no mention is made of a manual. When all else fails, read the book.

Just attach the pdf s and upload from your computer - somebody will move them to the appropriate site.

The Triton has 2 plunge modes.

push plunge and wind down. You have to set button on the plunge handle?

What model is it? TRA001 or TRC001?

In response to you people who responded so warmly, Biagio, Steve, Nick, Roxanne, Dan, Tom the Desert Rat, Stick and James the Greeter, I attach the manuals and some images of the Triton TRS001. The Bosch is a 1300 model, not 1400. I think I must get new glasses, never mind reading the safety manuals. I have never used a big router before, apart from a little Dremel which I used to make a hinge recess, so I am a bit scared of using this big thing. But first I must get it in proper working order, after I get the dry lube stuff I ordered.

Hi Robert,
That particular model of Bosch, is not the DIY (green) machine I was thinking of, it was part of their professional range. I would be very surprised if it is dead in the water - must be something stupid. Bosch is open - contact the Cape Town service centre, and get them to check it out. Even if there is a small charge, it is worth it.
Regarding the Triton, it sounds like it is a procedure problem, involving the interlock, the switch, the plunge lock. I would be happy to discuss it with you on videoconference, but I think you would be better served by talking to someone who knows the product. i do not know where you bought the tools, but there is a great outfit in Cape Town called BPM Toolcraft, in victoria Ave, Plumstead. they have re-opened, subject to strict social distancing rules. Specifically, there is a very knowledgeable guy called Brian Thomas. I recommend you contact him, take it in and ask him to look at it. he will know if it is a machine fault or something procedural. they are re-sellers, and can send it for fixing if required.
A word of warning: if you have never been there before, have someone else take charge of your credit card before you step into the shop.
The other useful crowd is Hardware Centre, but I cannot vouch for the knowledge of the Cape Toewn guys - i do not know them.

Biagio, thanks again. I would love to go, but the roads here are crawling with cops who pull off cars all over the place. Also, I am a bit jittery about this corona bug as I am in the wrong age bracket, lungs worn out by years of smoking and a bit of blood pressure. So I am going to soldier on with the good advice I have received so far. If nothing works, I guess I will venture off to Plumstead when the coast is clear.
