I stripped the PLASTIC microadjuster gear in my Triton router. Contacted Triton and they said they would ship one out with instructions on how to replace it. Received the part but no instructions. It looks to me like I have to separate the body to remove a snap ring but am not sure. Triton says they have been having a issue with this plastic gear stripping and thought someone may have had some experience.

I had this problem as well, but they shipped me a new router instead of the part (which is curious, because I offered to fix myself if they sent the part). I believe I originally spoke to Adam, but since it was 3 weeks ago, I’m no longer certain… in any case, he seemed very friendly and accommodating.

Have you called them back? I know you may be steaming over their not getting it right, but am inclined to hope that they’d get you fixed up correctly after a second call. In any case, please let me know how it resolves.

Thanks for the reply. I intend to call them back next week. I’m sure there is no one there on Sunday. I agree that the folks at Triton were friendly and accommodating. I’m sure they’ll get me up and running next week. Have been very impressed with the performance of this router except for this problem. They told me it occurs when you crank the microadjuster all the way up to do a bit change above the table. I think I just start reaching in and using the macro adjuster when I do bit changes. No big deal. Thanks again for the reply.

Have your say...
