I'm looking for some advice on a UK based link (ideally Amazon or ebay) for a router plate that will fit the triton mof001. I can't find any specific compatibility information for plates I've found. Thanks guys.

I’m not sure if there are any specifically stating they will even here Jacob. A few claim to be universal and they have lots of holes in them for various configurations A few have been made to fit Porter Cable and maybe Bosch and you had to drill it for other routers.

If you drill your own, I have found that the hole pattern is not symmetrical in most routers I have used. In other words the plate only fits one way on the router base. Also it can not be turned over and fit the base.
So when you use the sub base to mark the hole lay out, lay the sub base on the underside of the router plate oriented to the position you want the router facing under the table. Then drill a pilot hole through from the bottom preferably with a drill press then turn over and drill the bolt shank hole and counter bore for the head of the bolt.

All you need to do is take the black baseplate on the bottom of the router (which must be removed if installing into a table) and use it as the pattern. All the mounting holes are exactly where they would need to be for an exact template/pattern. Center the base plate in the hole in the plate first. I also suggest you get a plate with a twist lock insert rather than one that uses 3 screws, which are easily lost.

I make my own plates, and that is how I started, and still do. Didn't even think about any other way. I don't find screws to be a problem, I keep track and am careful not to lose any. And, when I do lose one or two or three, I make sure I have spares on hand to replace them. One issue, forgot where I put the spare screws.

Why are you looking for the plate for MO001? MO001 comes with the plate. This plate fits into the Triton router table if you want to go to next level of capability of the MO001.

Going to have to mine the archives..

The hole pattern matched a couple of the standard US big routers....

Will see what I can find....

From an old post (July 2014)...

This was from BJ....

The TGA001 kit will not work with the 2-1/4 hp (MOF001) router. I purchased it for mine, thinking it would fit, but had to return it to Amazon.
FYI: The Triton routers have the same sub-base hole mounting pattern as the Porter Cable 7518 Speedmatic router. You can get a clear sub-base that accepts PC guide bushings (Pat Warner sells, IMO, the best - WebHost4Life. I think that the PC style bushings are the best way to go with the widest variety of diameter bushings.

I used a Kreg router plate for my Triton router. The holes are marked, but you have to drill them. I had to use the router sub plate to locate the hole for the above table adjustment rod and handle. Worked well. Woodpeckers does not make a plate for this router. The web site says that it does, but I called the factory, and they told me that the information was incorrect on line. Hope this helps.

Hi Jacob, Trend is your friend, and in particular the MOF001 has a variety of plates available, such as the Unibase and various round and rectangular sub-bases. Always a worthwhile place to look when compatibility is an issue, even when you can't get Trend products in your market as there is some really useful stuff in there

I have the 3.25HP model but I confess that I don't use it too often. Like my Bosch Colt I only pull it out whenever a job comes up where my standard DeWalt 615 isn't suitable.
When I need pure power to route some 1/2 inch mortices, that's when the 3.25 really shines. Adjustability is easy but the unit is somewhat top heavy.
I have planned to build a router table for it some time but have always found other things to do instead.
