Default changing bits from on top

Hi Ho: Thanks for the invite to introduce myself. I am pretty frugal (read that cheap) so sometimes I try to do things the hard way. I really like the Sommerfeld concept of having bits that match in height and mounting bits on a rubber grommet. I do have some concerns about the Triton router not being supported.

I want to try a Freud 3 1/4 hp router and wonder if I will be able to use a bent wrench to change bits from the top without raising the bit to the top. Has anyone tried this with the Freud router?

Thanks for providing this forum for exchange of ideas.

Dirk

Hi Dirk

I use the bent wrench all the time with my Freud 3 1/4 hp routers, you can get under the big panel bits easy to change them out

I also like the Sommerfeld concept and use his way most of the time.

Hi Ho: Thanks Bob and Dave. I'm about to mount the Freud router and give it a go. I still like the Triton and wonder what will happen with them. Any news?
