    Default thanks boys

    Boys i just want to thank you,
    My name is shaun and i have just purchased a WC 2000 and Triton saw from bunnings. I have spent hours trolling thru this forum read the for and against. i have constantly used my dad's WC and now my brother has one. I played football an after a health scare was told to sell the boots and buy aWC 2000 by my doc who is a triton user. As i bought my triton treasure i felt one eye close over and now find my self going to the garage just cut stuff.
    Just one thing i am buying a router and bench. Which router and which bits do i start off with for basic routering.
    Again thanks boys and iam off to the garage there is always some thing to make.

    Welcome to the nut house!

    the short answer to which router to get in your case is one of the triton ones, but as to which one we need more information on what sort of work you are going to be doing in order to make a recommendation. i get the feeling you are going to use it mostly in the router table from what you said and if thats the case go the big one!!!

    Yep, like Richard said, welcome to the nut house.
    You started out with Thanks boys, well there are also a few girlies on this forum too, and some of them are even female.
    If you are a shorn sheep then watch out for Al, he has a thing about goats but he might be swayed by a naked sheep.
    Again as Richard says, work out what you want a router for, the Triton is great in a bench but some people find it a bit big/top heavy for hand use. You may find that a lighter unit will suit you better for a starter and you can always build a router bench and get a Triton later.
    Don't always expect a sensible answer from me, or for that matter quite a few others.

    Pleeeeease, a sheep is nothing like a goat.

    When it comes to starting a collection of router bits, Bunnies often sells wooden boxed sets of asstd. basic bits for surprsingly low prices. (I spotted 18 bits for $15- not long ago! :eek: )

    Now, these are not good quality bits... and I wouldn't normally recommend 'em but they give you something to break your teeth in on, a good variety of choice and a nice box to store 'em in. They're a good choice to practise your sharpening skills on; if you stuff one up, no great loss. As you blunt/break bits replace 'em with good quality ones. You'll soon work out which ones you use the most... and which you'll never touch again. Throw the unused ones in a drawer & fill their spot in the box with a spare of the most used types.

    Sharp spares are always handy.
    I may be weird, but I'm saving up to become eccentric.

    Go the Triton! (Seriously)
    As Skew said, a cheap set is one way to work out what you may want, but expect to notice quite a jump in quality of finish when you migrate to some decent bits. Get 1/2" bits (assuming you go for a 1/2" router, such as the Tritons).

    Of course, if you decide to buy a few good bits (the only brand I'd buy from Bunnings is Triton), then slowly build the collection (each trip to Bunnings adds another bit to the set )

    Woodworking Warehouse sells Linbide bits, and Carbi-tool (a number of places sell these, including the Woodworking Show) have excellent carbide, and are worth the money. You generally get what you pay for.

    G'day Shaun,

    I don't know if you are into eBay, but there is a new (?) Triton router up for sale at this location - http://home.search.ebay.com.au/trito...8QQsacatZ11700
    that you might be interested in.

    I purchased mine a couple of weeks ago and wish this was available then.
    Cheers,

    Noel
