Default Triton $199

Home Depot has dropped the online price of the Triton TRA001 to $199 through January 2014.

I purchased the router through Infinity Tools earlier in the month for $249, which included the free belt sander. Oh well.

I'm new to the routing world, and am in the process of putting together a setup to build cabinet door fronts and drawers for my kitchen.

Hi Doug, welcome to the forum.

That looks like a good price.

Wow - that is the big unit for $30 less than the medium unit (3.5 HP vs 2.25HP) on Amazon.

If anyone has any observations about how loud it is or how well (or not) the dust collection feature works when mounted on a table, I'd like to hear them.

It would appear that the special price was removed once they sold out. It was still available when I looked yesterday.

Along similar lines... I've been waiting to order the Kreg table from HD since the week after Christmas. I opted to go the route of the Kreg table because I had quite a bit of HD credit & gift cards to use up, and it appeared to be the best option they offered (another "online only" product). It finally appeared as "available" yesterday morning, so I quickly placed the order. Last night I received an e-mail that it's currently on backorder. Ugh! Just when I thought I was a step closer.

If it wasn't for the gift cards, I'd probably be ready to pursue the table setup offered by Infinity with the JessEm fence and Woodpecker plate.

$199 on Amazon right now, Prime eligible. I can't post URLs so just search for Triton TRA001 and it's the first hit.

I paid $289 for mine on Amazon less that 1 year ago so $199 is a great deal. This router is not overly loud and I like the ability to adjust bit height from the top of the table using the included crank. My only complaint is the safety power switch design that requires the switch to be off position before the bit can be raised into the auto-lock position to be replaced. So I still have to get under the table to do this. I will bypass this switch at some point since I only plan to use this on a table. The dust collection port works well for me. I purchased the Bosch VAC005 hose based on a post I found on the forum and it fits the Triton dust port perfectly. I purchased a 4" to 2.5" reducer to adapt to my 4"dust collector. All parts were available on Amazon.
