Hello,

Has anyone had a problem with the Router mounting plate on the Router Table Module TWX7 RT001 .
The plate is only 1.7mm thick and moves which causes the router bit to move when cutting and causing chatter in the cuts.

I have made a really bad video showing the problem

I don't know anything about that particular setup, but can you make a replacement one out of aluminium?

Would this upgrade fit? It is for a different Triton model though http://www.toolsparesonline.com/product ... e-kit.aspx It might be worth contacting them to see if there is an upgrade kit for your table.

how much material are you trying to remove at once??
chattering can be caused by overloading the cutter or unballanced or cutter working loose
if you try to remove say 3mm x40mm wide off material how does it perform ??

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.

.25mm on a piece of 2x1 pine, look at the video to see the movement, hardly any pressure to move the router

I was thinking of drilling through the plate using the same fixings for the plastic base plate thats removed to fit on the router table.
That would give 2 extra fixing points to the plate on the plane that moves, if that makes sense.

Anything that beefs it up will probably do the trick :thumbright:

another thought
if you are adjusting via a fine control mechanism are you also using the plunge lock mechanism ??

Thats not the problem, its the mounting design thats poor, its clean and all the parts screw in ok, no clips or anything odd fitting.

The only other part that is incorrect is the adjusters for the centre cover ring, the recess cut into the table is slightly too deep and the grub screws at just at a point of falling out, poor manufacturing / and design, its an easy fix.

In an ideal world no you shouldn't, but I often seem to end up modifying kit in some way. Depends if the rest of it does it's job OK.
