Routing Techniques

Triton 3 and one quarter hp router

Triton TFBR001 3.25HP Fixed-Base Router Kit

The beauty of a large router like the Triton TFBR001 is its unlimited potential and simple, reliable design. The 3.25HP motor hardly breaks a sweat during demanding tasks. Handheld, with the fixed base installed, you can rout big dados in a single pass, and pattern rout with no need to even rough-cut first with a bandsaw. The fixed base uses a height adjustment that woodworkers are very familiar with from classic routers—just rotate the motor to raise it. If you eventually get a smaller mid-size or compact router, you can mount the motor in a lift like the Rockler Pro Lift, for easy height adjustments and bit changes. Old school design promises rugged durability.
