Longer crank handle for Triton
I have built a router table around my Triton MFO01 router, and have started to use it.
I discovered that the crank handle for the built-in lift mechanism isn't long enough to clear the fence when using a tall (long) bit. I discovered the problem when I was routing a T-slot. I used a 1/4" bit to cut the slot, and came back with the T cutter. I did not want to move the fence for obvious reasons.
When the bit requires that the router be lowered very much, the fence interferes with the crank handle rotation.
I tried making a new one from wood, but by the time I drilled out the 7/16" dowel to accept the centering pin on the router body, the wood was so thin that it broke on first use.
Suggestions? Triton does not offer a longer crank that I can fine.
I'll burn that bridge when I come to it
