I have had this type of setup for about a year or so and it works fine, the only issue I have and I don't really know if its an issue, it might just be a design.

After i set the height, i reach down under the table and lock the router so it doesn't vibrate off the measurements, however, if i have to make minor adjustments after i make a pass, when i release the lock, the bit drops down a little and i have to measure all over again, it only happens after i make the cuts and release it to adjust.

Am I doing something wrong, or is that the way it supposed to work, it has done ever since it was installed in it.

Thanks

Check your fine adjustment for play...when you lock the router it does not lock the fine adjustment. It may be vibrating a bit if there is play.

Try this...when you make your final adjustment with the fine, make it so that it's on the "up stroke", then lock the router...if you go past your final, go back down and come up on it again...

Doesn’t the router have an above table height adjustment? If so I do noe understand the need to unlock the router.

Tom, the Triton has above the table adjustment but it is connected to the fine adjustment. The router still needs to be locked and unlocked. The coarse adjustment (quick up/down) is done with the knob on the side of the Triton.

Further proof that I need to get my Triton in a table!😁
