Default Triton Router Base Plate

Having purchased a Triton TRA001 to be matched with an Incra LS25 I have drawn up the required base plate for the table which will be in the making soon I hope (the table that is). Posted here is the dxf version of the base.

I used the drawing to then cut the base plate out of 10 mm acrylic including the centering hair lines which come in handy when lining up the 'wonder fence' for some of the cuts.
Cutting the base plate is made relatively easy by using a CNC router with a 710 x 400 mm table which gives me very accurate results (if the dwg is correct of course).

The chosen angle of the hole pattern relative to the rectangular base plate is such that the height adjustment of the router will face forward towards the operator, which makes raising and lowering the bit, possibly while keeping an eye on same a little less awkward.

Only disappointment really was the Triton router which after careful selection due to its ability to be height adjusted through the table turned out to be not able to achieve this feat.
Strange that the little brother can, and the big brother cannot....
Well, I guess next time I have to make sure to browse through the entire forum first. I did find the description on the Triton website a little confusing but in the end it probably is just me. After the purchase I did find a post here which clarified the matter.
Guess it now will have to be one of them router lift arrangements.

Hope this may help someone.

The raiser is called "Router Raizer" by Router Technologies. There are two models - for the TRC001, you want the 200. It costs $89.99 from PeachTree Woodworking. If you watch the sales fliers, you can get a $25% discount coupon and is what I did.

I own the pair and it workd excellent. Just finished my first project using the set-up. It raises and lowers like effortlessly.

Dang I cannot open the file since I do not have the program. I have the 3 1/2 with the lift handle and purchased the bench dog large group 1 plate. Anyone have a template for drilling?

I just purchased the Trition 3 1/4 router and it came it the above table crank. Put it in a Incra Aluminum router plate... Works incredibly great. Paid 269.00 with free shipping from Woodcraft. Earlier models did not have the crank.

Did the hole come in the plate for the crank? Or did you have to drill it?

I know this is an old question, but it might help others to know that the Incra plates do NOT have the hole for the adjustment crank.

I just purchased the Kreg big router table (1040 I think) and a Triton TRA001 Router (Made in China of Swiss parts but owned by Kreg) I have never owned a router and have no clue how to install the router. I had no trouble assembling the Kreg stand from a little over 10,000 parts (it seemed) and it is ready to go with a switch mounted on the front of the stand and the Triton router just sitting there staring back at me! I have been a woodworker for 10 years but have stayed away from routers for some reason...but now is the time for war! Can someone help me on where to start? Kreg's people told me what to buy and I now have almost $1,000 of new "stuff" sitting on the shop floor. Thanks, Pensacola Johnny

Welcome to the forum, John.

I am not sure where to start, where you want to start?

There are many good books and videos on using the router to achieve various projects.

I am a triton fan for many years and find your post ambiguous and confusing.

I cannot see where you would need "almost $1,000 of new "stuff".

Can you please list what "Kreg's people" told you to buy?

Default Big hole

Hi Tom,

Just a couple of question. The 3 big hole (12,2mm and 15,7mm) are needed to?

Which one is the Micro Adjustment Hole?

... and ... the 4 hole (7.8mm) are 7,8 to include the head? What's the inner diameter?

Thanks for the info.
