    Default Triton TRA001 Router Micro Adjustment Problems

    Hi all,

    Hope someone can help me out there. A while back I bought a Triton TRA001 Router from Bunnings. It was a demo model and came with no waranty or instructions or accessories but I bought it anyway as it was only $170.

    I have it mounted in a table and have removed the large plunge spring. I only have one problem with it. The micro adjustment does not work properly. It sort of goes down but will not go up. It goes up about a mm or two and then drops down again, so this means that fine adjustment is not really posible. Does anyone out there have any ideas how I can fix this and if spare parts are available for these routers.

    Thanks heaps in advance

    The slippage is due to wear on the lands or grooves of the plastic worm gear. I replaced mine with the metal one mentioned. If you need help in the actual replacement process, it's available in a page I wrote a while back here. Just follow the instructions and pictures and you'll be fine (no need to dismantle the winding handle, that part was written following a request from a member here, but you need to read the section below the last picture for re-assembly tips).
