    opinions about TRITON router wanted

    Hi all, I'm due for a new work horse for my router table I have realy liked my hitachi m12v routers but they are wearing out and they don't make them any more. I have the new m12v2 and it's a great router but not well suited for table use. I have been reading about the TRITON 3 1/ hp router and I think I'm sold. Looks like Woodcraft has the best price. I'd like to hear some opinions from you all on this product or comparable in this price range.

    I'll be watching this thread. The Triton has been on my "possible" list for a router table for some time. All the magazine reviews say it's a great choice for a table, and sveral members here are using it in this way. Let's see what develops.

    Here's a couple of "outside" reviews for your info. I'm sure others here will also post their opinions, experience.

    dewayne, i bought 2 of the 2-1/4hp models, with hopes of setting them up back to back in a table so as to hopefully not change bits as often. well that hasn't happened, been too busy, so i have only been able to use one of them hand held. in this application i think it is great, a little bulky for handheld work, unless the base is on a nice sized work piece. i love the adjustment features and the stuff it comes with is great for the price.

    hopefully frank pellow will chime in, he has a 2-1/4 as well and i believe he put it in a table, last i heard he loved it. he should have a good 6-8 months of use in it now.

    keep in mind though the features on the 2 models were different. unless they upgraded the 3hp.

    i guess i wasn't much help. sorry. good luck
