I don’t own a Triton but I remember reading somewhere that this was an issue with the bit dropping slightly when the lock was released. It was addressed here on lj. And also here.. But I also remember reading somewhere else that the Titon height adjustment is not as exacting as a lift. With a lift if you raise the bit by a 32nd of an inch and it’s too high then you can drop it by exactly a 64th or even smaller. Most lifts have a dial that makes it easy to make minute adjustments.

Rich did a review on his blog about using a lock miter bit. I did one also. It’s this type of small adjustment that I am talking about. When the measurement is exact the joint disappears. Your mileage may vary. I got by without a lift for a long time but now I wouldn’t be without one.

My first lift was a Stumpy Nubs DIY lift that I used in my table saw wing that also worked better than the adjustment on my Bosch fixed base in the table when it came to making fine adjustments.

I also think that the Triton won’t fit in most lifts, however many own them and love them.
