Triton MOF001 2-1/4 HP Dual-Mode Plunge Router

The Triton MOF001 is a multiple award-winning plunge router with simple, intuitive adjustments and the unique capability to perform those adjustments from above the table when table-mounted. Think of it like a router with a lift built in—once mounted, just insert the winder wrench through the top of the table for precise adjustments. To change bits, just wind it all the way up. The bit extends well above the table and even automatically locks out the collet at the end of its travel. A single wrench is all you need to loosen the collet. This same ease of use extends to handheld operation. In free plunge mode, you can quickly plunge to rough depth. Rotate the handle for finer adjustments, then rotate the microadjuster for very fine adjustments. A 3-stage turret lets you immediately access commonly used depth settings. With its compact and powerful 2-1/4 HP motor and 8000-21,000 RPM variable speed with electronic speed maintenance under load, the Triton MOF001 is up to most any routing task. Includes extended base plate with fence for routing grooves and dados, plus a unique circle-cutting feature.


Features:
  • 1/4'' and 1/2'' collets for a greater range of bit selections
  • 2-1/4 HP electronically-controlled motor for maintained speed under load
  • Automatic spindle lock engages only when power switch cover is closed
  • Soft start and variable speed for all cutter types
  • Single button switches from plunge to fixed based router with rack and pinion adjustment
  • Micro winder enables continuous fine depth adjustment through the full plunge range
  • Above the table, single wrench bit changes
  • Electronic speed control ensures a fine finish on all materials
  • Removable plunge spring for easy bit adjustment when table mounted
  • 3-stage turret with direct reading scales for precise pre-set cut depths
  • Fully enclosed guarding provides maximum protection from the cut zone and assists dust extraction
  • Multi-function fence provides optimum control for hand-held use and circle cutting
  • Quick-fit pins for fast fitment and removal from the fence and the RTA300 Router Table
  • Side air vents reduce intake of dust into the motor casing when mounted upside-down in a router table
  • Excellent dust extraction for a cleaner, safer working environment
  • Easy access brushes for quick changes
  • Through the base single-wrench bit change is achieved with the automatic spindle lock
  • Safety switch shutter locks closed in bit-change mode to prevent router being switched on

Best router ever!
Had my doubts because this is foreign made. The quality is better than any other router I've used. I put this on my router table and wish I had another one for off table use.

What’s Not To Like?
I bought this router to be primarily undermounted in a portable scissor-legged Rockler router table. Using the router base as a template, I easily drilled the table insert to accommodate the bolt pattern. I love this router for its design eliminating the need for a lift. Major adjustments are easy to make underneath the open Rockler table and fine adjustments can be made from the table top with included crank that connects through a port to the fine-adjustment screw. I have both fence and router vacuum attachments to that keep cleanup to a minimum. Buying the Triton on sale made this and exception value especially considering the design eliminates the need for a lift.

Triton 2-1/4 HP Dual-Mode Router
This router has done all that I have asked it to do. It really lives up to its ads. I am using it as a freehand router and it has done everything with ease and I love the dust Shute. It does a great job.

Triton. A Great Router! Rockler. A Great Tool Company
I had been looking at several different brands I have seen in the past then I came across the Triton. I compared to others and just had to go with this one for the safety features and options that came included for the price. It has covered power switch that locks when base is fully compressed to prevent accidental start when installing and working on bits. When base compressed and locked, it auto locks the shaft for one handed tightening and loosening of bits. I has clear safety shield on either side of bit area. There is a port for vacuum attachment. It includes the collet wrench with a 1/2 and 1/4 inch collets. An extended fence with straight and circle attachments. A height adjustment rod for use on table mounting. Wow! And the best part is the price which is the best for all this included stuff. It is well balanced, decent weight and is dual mode, plunge or fixed. Has free plunge or fixed coarse adjustment on one knob and a fine adjustment for fine tuning. Speed control for adjusting to different bit types. Everything you could want and no bad points. I am looking at one of the new Triton Work Centers with router table module for future purchase for table mounting. Buy one! You won't be sorry. And buy it from ROCKLER! Great service and quick delivery. A pleasure to do business with.

Favorite router
I also purchased this router years ago and wonder why other manufacturers do not have the same style of lift built in their routers. Adjusting the depth from the top of the table is how all plunge routers should be designed, yet Triton is the only one I know of that has this feature.

New?????
I purchased one of these about ten years ago and have been wondering why you hardly ever seen one in the woodworking stores but i am here to tell you this one of the best well designed routers for a table mount that i have ever stuck into a chunk of wood.
Pro's -- one fine Router
Cons-- Might be a little unhandy for Right handers but seeing as i am a Lefty to bad.

I chose this router because of the good reviews on the internet from other woodworkers, the safety features that were not on the other brands I looked at and the unbelievable price! Also it is sold by Rockler which is one of the best tool companies out there.

Since I'm getting the 3.25 HP Titan for my Router table. I needed an egually exciting Hand Held Router as well.

I have a Triton 3.25 HP and needed a smaller unit. I am very happy with the larger unit and elected to stay with Triton.
