Default triton router

hi all

i have a question about my triton router. how can i disable the on/off safety window so i can use an on/off switch mounted on the side of the table. i thought about taping the safety window open but not sure if thats a good idea.

thanks for your help in advance,

big guy

Big Guy. The on/off safety window is just that! It should stay open anyway with the switch in the 'on' position. It also means (at least on my TRA001) that you can't raise the router to access the collet without switching off and allowing the safety window to close. Your table mounted on/off switch will still work with the router switch/window in the on position.

I've cut it twice and it's still too short! But only at one end.

Geordie is correct. With the switch permanently on the collet lock will not function to change bits. It's a safety feature you do not want to disable.

Default Triton Router

Hi Big Guy,

I use my Triton TRA001 router fixed in a triton router table set in my Triton MK3 work centre.

As this has an on/off switch on the work centre, the only time I have to use the switch on the router is when I need to change cutters.

I would not see a need to try and circumvent that safety feature, and as advised, the safety switch has to operate to raise the router collett above the table and lock.
