Default Triton table install

Greetings everyone, and thanks for the opportunity to indulge in other's ideas on woodworking. I do have one question about installing the Triton 3.5hp in a table. I've just acquired this router and have drawn plans for installing it in a table saw outfeed table. I do plan to hinge the top for router access. But what I haven't figured out is how I can install an exterior switch for router control, if that is possible at all, due to the special safety feature of this router (sliding cover). Or must I just accept that I will have to bend down and fumble for that switch every time I want to use it? Many thanks.

There are external switches available and I am sure someone will be able to point you in the right direction. My Triton come with it's own Triton table already with the external switch in position. I would not recommend using the router without having a switch in position.

Hi Dick

You can put one in place many sale them

Out of all the routers I have I dislike the Triton the most because of many items but the plastic cover over the switch is why I put it back in the box,plus the mickey mouse lock knob system
A real PITA items but I will say you can jam the cover open to get around that design error..

bj3 :Many people say the same thing about safety belts/shoulder straps/airbags in autos.

I have several routers but the Triton is tops in my Humble opinion (errr --> for the money that is -- Festool is beyond my wallet)
