It isn't , and it made no difference locked or not, I have already looked to see what difference locking it made.


Do you work for Triton?

Looking at the second video it shoes the movement is between the router and the mount. The mount does not appear to flex. Is the issue that the screws are a little too long and bottoming in the router therefore not clamping it up tight?

they are clamping up tight, but the pivoting point is the mounting screws

Do you work for Triton?

when somthing is that floppy it is obviously not functioning as designed
we need to systematically work our way through what can be causing or contributing to the problem with the easiest cheapest quickest items dealt with first
i have a very analytical brain so my answers may not be as you would expect :lol:

If you look at Piccyman's video you can see the flex in the base allows a degree of movement on the cutter. This woudl cause the cutter to bounce against the work and cause an irregular cutting pattern, far from the accuracy needed in table router work. Would it be possible to fashion a reinforcing plate to sandwich between the router and the table mounting plate? A bit of ply would probably do it.

Ahh, I thought that might do the trick. Well done and thanks for letting us know how it went :thumbright:

I have been looking at the router mounting plate and think that it has a fault in the pressing.
Where the router mounts are there are keyhole type slots and it looks like it they have been cutout incorrectly, which is causing points to tip on.

Or either the table top has recesses for the cutouts and they are not wide enough for the ridges in the mounting plate to drop into.




So either the ridges shouldn't be there or the recesses have been cut too small.

Not sure how you are getting on with your problem, but having seen your video, I see an immediate problem.

You have mounted your plate below your working surface rather than setting the plate in the surface to be level with the worktop? Never seen that before. The router bit will follow the template you are cutting to, so the movement you show on the metre is not at all in line with how the bit will cut.
Although I am fairly new to Router work, I have a Triton TRA001 mounted on a plate within a worktop.
How are you doing so far??

Just seen the second video and hadn't realised that it was on a Triton Table. Rather thin for the job so I did not consider the table when looking at Triton and have no knowledge other than what I saw when looking at the table some time ago. It 'should' be designed not to move so muck. Hope it's sorted out?
