Triton crank handle position?
I've finally installed my Triton 3.25hp router in my newly assembled Incra table.
I have a problem with the above-table crank. This Incra table (27"x43") is partially enclosed so that my router access is from what you would consider the "side" (the end of the infeed fence) rather than from the front as with a "normal" table. When I positioned the router I gave considerable thought to what would give me the best access to the router handle with the quick height adjuster and the on/off switch. But in this position, (I've already drilled the hole in the plate... my bad.) the above-table crank handle doesn't clear the fence when it is right at the bit.
Have any of you Triton owners experienced this problem? How have you resolved it? Is a longer (taller) crank handle available?
When making a deep cut in several passes, I have to move the fence out of the way of the crank to raise the bit and then return the fence it to its original position with each height adjustment. Even though Incra's Positioner would help me do this, I don't want to go through all these steps. I know I could just reach under the table and manually turn the height adjuster knob, but that sort of defeats the purpose of buying a router with the above-table option in the first place.
Thanks for any suggestions/advice, etc.
