Default Table mounted Triton

Just got my Triton mounted & finishing up on the fence. I was wonder in if you guys that have the Triton engage the plunge lock lever after setting bit up or can you leave it unlocked when routing?

You must set the plunge lock if you want your bit to stay where it should.

Hi Don, have you removed the spring from the router?

I never locked the plunge lock lever for many years and never had a problem.

Are you using the through table winder to adjust the height?

Although I stand by my earlier statement, I have checked the manuals for my 2 Tritons, and both say to lock the lever.

I recommend locking it.

True, you can sometimes get away with not locking it (depending on the job). But it's easy to lock and takes almost no time. Why wouldn't you? I'm a firm believer in developing habits. If you get in the habit of locking it, it will become automatic. Bit-drift in the course of a cut can be costly and if you always lock the plunge, that's one less thing you have to worry about.

Thanks for the info, I have been locking it but before I purchased I read a lot on it & a few stated that you did not have to lock it, still new to the router table & would hate to ruin some good wood.

Default More vibration noise when plunge lock engaged?

Has anyone else noticed the router is noticeably louder (sounds like an additional vibration) when mounted in a table and the plunge lock is engaged vs. not engaged? I also experienced some drift to the height so just started engaging the lock but now I'm concerned about the change in sound...

Thanks,

-Todd
