I saw this tool in operation and after all the years that I have been exposed to the table saw dangers this product impressed me the most.  I think it would be of benifit for all of us to watch this in operation and it is reasonable in price as well.  Much better than any push stick or…

Thank you Jay for responding and giving me some tips before attempting to mount my Triton to the new Kreg router table. I've gone over the instructions and its all seems pretty straigtforward. I did opt to purchase the mounting plate pre-drilled for the Triton so hopefully that goes smoothly.

Again - thanks for taking the time to help a stranger!!

Hi Jay!

A month or so ago you welcomed me to the group and gave me some good suggestions regarding using a router table for the first time. Well, with your feedback in mind, I went out and bought the new Kreg router table system, Triton TRA001 Router and a slew of Sommerfeld bits and accessories. That being said, any words of wisdom as I embark on installing this router and setting it up in my new table? Thanks again and I appreciate all of your help this far!

hello again Jay

I am not sure how many years we/I have been on the Kreg site but didnt realise although we have been communitating over the years had never needed to communicate directly.

It was only thismorming I sw all the messages and eagerly logged it to check them out, only to be dismayed with waht I saw posted. I was so upset I was going to reply then though better of it, I guess some people will never change and after reading your career background I am saying nothing new.

 Here is hoping they withdraw their remarks and make a honest acceptance it was out of line and end the issue. Mind you I think the member who saw my stupid post wanted me banned from the site! So justice can be quite harsh if you draw the attention, regardlless of intent.

Have a good day !!

Jay,

Thanks for responding.  I am wrestling with purchasing a router.

The Triton has a 3 inch router bit opening.  Have you ever run a larger bit with the triton running above the router bit opening?

I currently own a Freud 3 1/4 raised panel bit and it was expensive, so I'm hoping to still be able to use it.
