    Dan,

    Just curious as to why you would want a lift on the big Triton.

    I have that unit in my table and I really llike the above the table bit changing and lift adjustment. IMHO

    Please tell me more, maybe I need one too.

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Dan,

    Well that makes sense and it saves me money.

    FWIW, Highland Woodworking is having a Triton "sale". Just got an email from them.



    Three Triton Routers available for
    $50 to $70 off for a limited time

    1-1/3 HP Plunge Router
    SALE $129.99 (was $189.99) 2-1/4 HP Plunge Router
    SALE $169.99 (was $219.99)
    3-1/4 HP Plunge Router
    SALE $199.99 (was $269.99)


    May be as cheap as a lift.


    Good luck with the search.

    This is very useful for me to know too! I was going to try to find a good deal on a 2.5hp router and slap it into a lift I have, but I'd rather have the triton in a saw extension! Think I'll buy that 3hp one, everything I've read say it's the best one to get for a router table.

    wish i would have seen this sale. i ordered a router rizer yesterday with the quick change tool holder

    Dave,
    You should check to see if this is the older model of Triton's 3.25 HP router. It doesn't have 'above the table' lift adjustment. The newer version of that router does have that function, as well as the 2.25 HP router. They might be clearing out stock of the old model for that price.

    Right, the older Tritons are a different format. To your original question, I have not seen a lift that fits that router but, that doesn't mean it isn't out there. I would keep that beast as a hand router and take advantage of the sale going on. For the price of a decent lift you get a second router/lift combination. Make more long term sense money-wise to me.

    I'm not sure I've ever seen a lift for plunge routers. That would require some significant disassembly of the router, and fancy/customized mounts on the lift, wouldn't it?

    The Router Raizer is designed for this but, not for the Triton ;-(

    Actually according to the Router Raizer website the RZ-200 kit can do the Triton TRC001.

    I have a router raizer on a different router, pretty good device. Only complaint I have is the hex style bolt is somewhat easy to strip.
