Just wondering if anyone has had a similar problem and what you might have done to fix it...... I have a Triton TRA001 Router. Most or all of my bits with 1/4" shafts tend to creep out of the router (cut deeper) while routing. No amount of tightening seems to solve the problem. I have used the original 1/4" collet that came with the unit, a second collet made for the Triton and a third party collet form woodcraft. No difference. I have cleaned all the dust out of the collets. No help. When I remove the 1/4" collet to use bits with a 1/2" shaft everything is fine. I heard that there should be some type of rubber washer or bushing inside or under the 1/2" collet and my unit does not have that piece and it does not show up in the exploded view of the unit. I can't imagine what help that bushing would be. I found a repair shop that will send me a new 1/2" and 1/4" collet to try. But in the meantime, does anyone have any ideas???
I think every new woodworker needs this book. Shows you how to tune every machine and make simple jigs to help with it.
