Default Fine adjustment using a TRA 001 in Router Table

Hi all!
Have borrowed a mates TRA 001 to do some micro finger jointing on the table.
Q : How do I get fine adjustment to operate?? ..... I need the micro adjustment, however, cant ssm to get any movement up or down with it.
Instruction manual hasn't enlightened me much.
Any experienced users out there who can get me on the right track?

Many thanks!

Hi Mark and welcome to the forum..

I have attache two photos.

The first one shows the micro adjuster knob which should operate no matter which mode the plunge knob is in.

The second photo show the locking lever - make sure this is not locked when you try to adjust.

Hi!
Thanks for your reply.
Just tried again - still cant get any adjustment via the knob or fine adjustment knob.
It is as though there is no 'engagement' between the two adjusters and the shaft with the teeth cut into the back.
Also, the centre orange knob will not come out flush with the outside. It does click in nad out to some extent, but no where near flush.
There is no way of holding the depth of cut except using the locking lever.

The router has had very little use, so it would seem unlikely that the 'gear' connection would be damaged???

Exclamation Micro adjusting the Triton TRA001

It sounds like the router is set in the "free plunge mode".

It does take a bit of wiggling for the centre knob to come out.

Push in and turn the orange selector anti-clockwise to put the router in handle winder plunge mode. As per the instructions attached, the micro adjuster only works in "handle winder plunge" mode, so I was wrong in that respect.

First you unlock it(thumb Lever) Use the end KNURLED (BIG ROUND END OF HANDLE) to obtain coarse adjustment,then use the fine adjuster to get the right height,then lock it up again.
