Triton's offering of a worktable -
« on: November 13, 2015, 04:58 PM »
Found this in one of my many woodworking emails today - Looks kinda similar to my MFT....sans track. I have no
idea on how good/functional it may be. I do have one of their routers in my router table and it has worked well.

Not sure - it doesn't say in the description. It looks to be marketed as a modular system, dropping in other modules, i.e. a router table module/ table saw module....

 The old Triton tables use to be manufactured in Australia.
 But I think those days are long gone. I would put my money on either China or Taiwan as that seems to be where their current routers and accessories are produced. Personally for the money I like Triton and for me their quality is quite good.

Far nicer than this one, but it better be for four times the price. The Triton bench must have a decent fence system if it is to be used as a table saw.

The contractor saw module is a smart move.

To me Triton was one of the leaders in converting a portable circular saw into a useful table saw. I had Triton's saw table, extension table, separate router table and super jaws (with Hitachi saws and routers mounted). Sadly the coastal air gradually consumed the work surfaces and I sold it all off cheap.

Back then (20~25 years?) the Triton gear was perfect for the kind of home projects I was tackling .. in fact it'd probably still be suitable for many!
