If the PC 7518 "used to be the standard", what's the standard now?


Good point Brandon.  I just meant that when you're on top for a long time, competitors get to micro-analyze your product and shoot at coming up with an improvement here and there.  Some people say that Milwaukee or Triton have improved upon the 7518, especially for in-table work.  That's what I was referring to.

  If I remember correctly someone, I believe it was Jerry Work, had issues with the Triton routers in a table. Over time dust made its way into the router causing problems. Sorry, I don't remember any more of the details than that.

Bill did a review of the Triton TRC001.   The original ones had a problem with the power switch.   The new ones have a dust boot.   Take a look at the very bottom of this page:  Third and fourth pics from the bottom.
