I see this on Craigs List for $170.00. Would this be a good router and at that price to purchase and add to my router table? I now have a table but I don't have a router for it.
I have been watching for a triton router so I can adjust it and change bits from the top. I'm just not ready to spend a ton of money on one yet.

I think you would be happier with a Bosch 1617EVSPK; I recently saw a post about a very good price on the forums. Bosch parts and service are second to none and this is an area where Triton is lacking.

Thanks Mike. I searched Amazon and see it's a good price there but after reading many of the reviews I'm not sure I want to go with that.

The bottom line is I'm just trying to find a good router that I can dedicate to the table that's easy to adjust the height as well as change bits. I can't see myself spending over $300.00 on a lift.

Any ideas?


Thanks all.

Most combo kit routers can be adjusted from above the table; add a Musclechuck and your bit changes will be quick and easy. :)

There should still be a link for a Musclechuck discount on the forums?

I am in no way connected to DeRosa Engineering and do not profit from any purchase members make from Musclechuck. This is just a discount I set up for forum members.

Mike, that's good to know for when ever I need one.

About our earlier conversation about that Triton and then the Bosch you recommended.
I did pick up an old Bosch 1615E??, I don't remember the exact last two digits now but I think it will get my by for now mounting it on my table. Then at least, I'll have something to use until I can take the plunge and buy better.

thanks!

Nice little routers, they will work well for you Bryan. Most parts are still available.

Bryan, I'm assuming that your price on the Triton is in U.S. $.

Our local tool store in Canada has the same machine for $170 Cdn. That's quite a bit less.

I don't have the Triton, but I do have the Bosch. :smile:

Keith,

I did not buy the Triton, I bought the Bosch. Before I responded to the Craigslist ad I did a few internet search's to read up on the Bosch and it looked like it'd be worth making an offer. He was asking $80 but since is was such an old model he accepted my offer of $50.00. I hope it's a good one, it does look pretty clean and it turns on ok. I really didn't have time today to mess with it so we'll see how well it works when I get it under a load.

I do have a Ridgid router kit (in a bag) that I've use quite a bit but never had a table until now. I look forward to putting it all together and giving it a try. Next up, buy a good fence.

Bryan have a look in my uploads. There should be a picture in there of a fence I made. It has sliding faces and dust collection and you can make it for $5 in 3 or 4 hours. It is as good as any you could buy.

Chuck,
Where can I find your uploads? I looked at your at your profile and I don't see anything there. I have looked at other members profiles in the past (haven't tried today) and seen their pictures but today I don't see anything under your profile.

I'm really all in on building my own fence and it's great you've offered yours. I just need to get to it. Maybe I have a computer problem on my end.
Thank you!

Bryan
