With its awesome power and suite of unique, user-friendly adjustments, the Triton TRA001 Dual-Mode Plunge Router more than deserves the praise it's been getting. Depth adjustments are a breeze with the unique "winder handle" - just squeeze the router's handle and turn to raise or lower, then use the micro-adjustment knob to dial in the final setting. You can also turn a dial to use the standard free-plunge adjustment. A turret system allows you to dial in two preset settings. Soft-start variable speed motor provides smooth, even power regardless of load. Bit changes are easy, one-wrench affairs - the spindle lock automatically engages when the spindle is extended past the faceplate - no more skinned knuckles juggling two wrenches inside the base. Whether in fixed mode or plunge mode, table-mounted or freehand, the Triton Dual-Mode Plunge Router will be a pleasure to use. It even includes a multi-function fence that serves as an edge guide, a circle cutter, and an oversized base.Technical Details:2400 watts, 3-1/4 HP.Variable speed range: 8000-21000 RPM.Includes multi-function fence and 1/2" collet with a 1/4" reducer. Automatic spindle lock only engages when power switch safety cover is closed. Multi-function fence mounts easily with quick-fit pins. Side-mounted cooling vents keep sawdust away from motor housing when router is mounted in a router table. Removable height-winder handle allows above table depth adjustments. Removable plunge tension spring makes bit adjustments easy when the Triton TRA001 is table mounted. Worn brushes are easily accessible. Single spanner 'above table' router bits changes. Fully enclosed plastic shielding provides maximum protection from chips, and aids in dust collection.
Finding an effective jig or fixture for a woodworking operation can be as elusive and time-consuming as designing a great piece of furniture, a sailboat, or a ukulele. It takes solid woodworking knowledge and some problem-solving skills, with a good dose of inspiration thrown in. Even a moderately complex setup can pose numerous choices: What tool or machine is best for the operation? Should the jig move the wood over the machine or guide the machine past the wood? How does the workpiece need to be referenced and clamped? Should the jig be adjustable? Most of the woodworkers I’ve met delight in solving challenging jigging problems. But tackling these problems requires a basic understanding of jig function and design. This book will teach you how to make these time saving devices and help improve everything you build in your shop. 272 pages. Contents: Section 1: Function and Design Why Use Jigs?

These magnetic shims can be stacked or ''split'' to create a handy setup block from 1/16'' to 1-1/8'' thick, in 1/16'' increments. Use them to set dado depths, router bit and drill bit heights, and distances from your router table fence to the bit. No more stooping down and squinting at a wobbly tape measure while you rotate a sharp blade with your fingers. Mag Shims sit firmly on the surface, and can be used as a solid block, or fanned open to create a staggered block when setting blade and bit heights. Includes (8) 1/8'' spacers and (2) 1/16'' steel spacers. Sticks to any ferrous surface for safe, convenient storage and easy accessHigh visibility-won't be accidentally swept up and tossed outAlso can be used as 1/8'' shims when spacing Euro style doors and drawers, and for common assembly operationsUse the corners of any Mag Shim to draw the following outside radiuses: 1/8'', 1/4'', 1/2'' and 3/4'', or a 1/4'' inside radius
