Having just bought a Triton TRA001 and exploring the mounting into a table, I found this video helpful.

Thanks for posting this Malcolm,
I own a King 3.5 HP plunge router that I bought years ago but haven't used much. I like the features of this Triton model and am leaning towards it to put in the router table I must build before I can open my new school.
Do any members have any better options such as Bosch or Porter Cable or any other brand that I can adjust the bit and change the bit from the top.
Cheers,
Dan

Not sure how many routers can actually change 'above' the table. In any event, even with the Triton, you still have to lock off under the table and switch on the safety switch.

When the collet is fully wound up, it automatically locks and turns off power, so no chance in the router starting up again. Also an NVR supply would be additional safety for the school.

There may be others on offer in Canada or USA, but I dont know. Additionally, there are a number of bit extenders that can be fitted so that the bit height in other routers is much higher.

@Danman1957 I think the Triton is the router to beat, particularly in a school situation where its safety interlocks will help keep students from injuring themselves and bringing lawsuits for the injury. It is a very powerful router and handles large diameter bits quite well. A long bit can easily be used to joint on the router, a small plus. Given the high marks for built-in dust collection, and the fact it costs a fraction of any of the commercial lifts, it was a no brainer for me.

Makita RP1801.
With a very minor modification to the base plate to give better access to the locking bolt, i change bits from above the table.

I dont have to reach under the table at any time for anything.

Thanks for the input guys. A Triton will be in my collection soon. I will not however let the students use it. I am offering beginner courses to start, if anyone wants to go more advanced and use power tools, that will be an intermediate course. I will get the students to sign waivers for insurance purposes. For beginners I will show them how the power tools work, but I won't let them use the dangerous ones. In an even more advanced course there could be turning, carving inlaying and other areas of fine furniture making.
Cheers,
Dan
