I need a variable speed router for cabinet door making. It looks like the router forum’s people strongly recommend the Triton routers for under table mounting. I’m about to pull the trigger on the 2 1/4 HP model but I’m reluctant for a couple of reasons.
Triton doesn’t have the long term reputation of the Porter Cable or Bosch routers. I really want a tool that will last for 10-20 years of around the house work. I can’t afford to keep replacing tools. They only offer 1 year warranty and I’m not going to be working it hard so I will not be testing it that hard.
Why are the prices so variable from sight to sight?
Amazon has it for 270, Rockler has the 3.5 and 2.25 hp for the same price of 250. Bistritontools.com has the 2.25 for 220. I’d love to touch one of these before buying it, but no one carries these in stock.
Any other advice?
