Excellent choices and I am comfident that you will enjoy using the combinations.  The triton is an excellent router and the somerfeld bit are second to none.  The main things to remember in their use is not to use escessive force and allow the bits adn the router to do the work for you meaning do take excessive large cuts ie each pass but make multiple passes.  This results in a clean cut with less wear adn tear on your equiptment.  Remember heat is the enemy of most things when it come to woodworking.


I attaching th router to the table which In the Kreg table it has the removeable plate of which I am not certain if it is bored for the mounting holes of the triton however It may be.  If not you will have to bore your own mounting holes and in doing so make sure the router collett is dead center with the center of the mounting plate.

Make sure the router is attached evenly to the plate and before mounting remove the black plastic base from the bottom of the router motor and keep them and the screws seperate and in a secure location so you can use them if you need to use the router motor for a hand held router.  It is best however to mount the router and dedicate it to the table use only as the removal and re installation can become a major operation to attach it in its exact location. 

Obtain longer mounting screws and to make sure you have enough threads to firmly tighten the base to mounting plate.  Position the router so that the crank will aline it self in a position so that you can use the through the table crank.  Here again I am not familiar with the mounting plate in the Kreg table as to where or not it is correctly bored for the triton.  I have a sommerfeld table and it is a no non-sense table that comes pre-bored for the triton router and attachment to the table top is straight forward.  I am sure that there are mounting directions supplied with the kreg table and if you follow them you will have no problems making a correct mounting of the router.

With out knowing of some specific questions that you have it is hard for me to make a clear explaination of how to tell you about your task at hand.

If there is any problems or specific areas of concern and you wish my assistance and or opinions feel free to contact me with them. 

Have a good day and enjoy your work with your new tools, take your time in setting up your router table as taking your time and performing it correctly will result in a satisfaction of being able to produce many fine woodworking project with an emense amount of pleasure doing it.

Kreg Foreman

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
