Default Triton tra001 won't arbor lock

I have both the tra001 and the mof001... The model in both plunge and normal adjustment will compress completely and the arbor will lock to change the bit...

I am just setting up my tra001 for a router table, and I am having a hard time trying to compress this one completely to lock the arbor... It will go to the second to last rotation, then it won't go any further... The spring is out, the stop is released,...

I've included a picture.

Hope you guys can help!

And the pin that gets pushed to lock the arbor is working correctly... Exactly as my mof001 is...

Do you have the power switch on the motor in the "OFF" position? You can't raise the shaft all the way to lock it if the switch isn't off. I learned that the hard way. :-(

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Ohhhhh sorry to hear

That was the problem... I had it unplugged but the switch was on... Thank you.

And again I hope it didn't cause to much damage

One more question. Do you take the black surface plate on the router off?

In my case, no. The pins that Triton use for their table plate and guide fence may protrude too far to allow the second base plate to sit flat. If you remove these pins there should be no problem.

I also use a Triton A001 in my table. It's fiddle to have reach under the table to flick the switch off so you can raise it to lock. I fitted a no volt safety switch and modified the switch on the router so it doesn't block the spindle lock. A bit fiddle to do as you have to get the casing off and remove a small part. Don't do it unless you have another override switch for safety. If you always use the safety button to switch the router on and off there's no risk of it starting while locked.
