Sorry to hear that Steve. Some one will have it. hopefully. With that many problems, they should make it out of metal!

The Chinese company GMC that owned Triton went bankrupt I heard, but perhaps that wasn't true or maybe someone else bought it from GMC?

I have stripped my first worm gear and am waiting for a replacement from the company that now has the right to sell Trition in N. America. The number I have called is 800 624 2027, but they don't have replacements yet.

Did you take the spring out when using in the table? This step was left out of the instruction book.

Good Luck

Kevin

thanks Kevin for the tel# like i said in my thread this my third one.they keep sending new ones along with instructions on how to change it out.yea i did take out the spring.i think it a bad design,being made out of plastic.the groves strip out real easy.you would think it would make it of metal i will do research for my next router . any suggestions will be welcome i do like the above table adjustment.

When you get a replacement, you could have a machine shop make a metal one for you. Not sure what that would cost, but may be cheaper than a new router.

Come on Bj, you're talking about the router that I love, but for table use only. Considering the almost zero number of complaints that I've head about broken gears, I can understand an occasional one breaking, but three, doesn't that sound like there is an underlying fault.
