Hi,
I have a Triton TRA-001 on which the little piece that the winder latches on to broke. I don't know when and how it fell off and I don't have the broken pieces so I am having a hard time figuring out the best way to make a diy replacement. After searching for a long time online I could not find a clear image which shows the piece I'm referring to. Can I trouble someone with a Triton upload a clear image. Again to be clear I am talking about a small piece on which the two notches in the winder stick latch on to.
Thank You

Sorry, that was the older model which did not support the table winder.

Will see waht I can find.

First, welcome. I think this is something you'll need to get from Triton. Not sure if they have a service center in your area, but you can start here. https://www.tritontools.com/en-US. They are a pretty customer service oriented bunch. I found several service centers in my region out west.

Thanks. I am actually abroad for a while in a country where they have no service center, but I did try to contact them through their website multiple times and didn't receive a response. It is possible that there was some kind of technical issue with the form going through.

I have one of the original TRA's (pre through table winder) and one of the smaller 1000W units that I purchased second hand. The small unit had the through table winder from the factory but the ball and pin that the winder connects to was broken off when I received the unit. There had been significant binding between the winder leadscrew and its nut assembly, so I ordered a new leadscrew assembly and the ball and pin assembly from one of the UK parts suppliers as at that time (as frequently occurs here) Triton had no Aussie distributor or parts supplier. I understand that the US distributor is fairly good for parts and service at the current time, and figure that you will need too check whether your router winder system is free and working, or jammed. If the winder system works OK, you may just need to replace the ball and pin outside the router housing, but if there are any issues with the internal winder system as well, you may have to replace a range of components in the winder system. The failure in my 1000W units winder was definitely caused by some one winding to max or min depth and jamming the leadscrew and nut on galled thread, then trying to wind back to release with the above table winder, causing the drive pin in the ball adaptor to split the ball and destroy it.
