Default Triton Router - Grizzly Router Plate. Warping?

Hi everyone, finally registered for the forum I have been lurking forever. So I just picked up a new Triton Router (TRA-001) through the homedepot deal and looking at a new router plate.

I was planning to get a woodpecker aluminum plate but the Grizzly plate gets such positive reviews.

My question, will the Grizzly plate be strong enough to support the Triton router if I keep it table mounted?

Has anyone tried to laminate 2 of the Grizzly plates together? At $13 a piece, I thought pretty cheap to try and would add significantly to the strength.

Thoughts?

I have hung several different 3 + hp routers on the Grizzly plates and have had no problems with them. My TRA001 is installed in the Grizzly table with a Grizzly plate.

You can not laminate this type of plate together, the removable rings would not function.

Thanks for the reply Mike. And you haven't had any problems hanging the routers off the Grizzly? No warping over time?

I haven't noticed any warping so far. To be fair I must admit that it has only been about 8 or 9 months. My thought is if one of the plates warps over time it is still much cheaper to replace it than to buy any other plate.

I will never argue with Mike. But when building my first table the thought of hanging a three hp router from plastic made me splurge for Woodpecker predilled for the Triton

Learning is an exciting adventure

Nothing wrong with that Bill. I change out routers so often that it is not cost effective for me to buy higher priced plates. I have installed routers on about a dozen of the Grizzly plates and none have failed so far. I think I have installed about 8 routers in Rousseau plates; the Grizzly plate is a flat clone of the Rousseau like most of the phenolic plates are.

Thanks for the welcome and tips guys. I figure at $13 bucks, if it warps I can always use it for making a jig.

If you look at the parts for the router table on the Grizzly site, pretty cheap miter/t-track as well.
