The original one I was sent blew within 24 hours. They replaced straight away and this one has been going for the last 3 years. They aren’t Jet/Axminster but for the money they aren’t too bad. It’s the only Triton item I have though so can’t really say on their other products.

I'm still getting by with my hand-powered Mirka sanding block.  It's the one with the dust extraction holes, so I just stick the pipe from that into the Dysan hosepipe and it seems to work OK.

But agree completely with the comment re Abranet.  It seems expensive until you realise that it lasts way way longer than "ordinary" sandpaper and is way more effective too.

An electric Mirka random orbital sander ... hmmmm ... when's my birthday??

Highly recommended, TV...

I’ve got the same model - it works fine - extraction works well...

Did manage to connect the blow on my shop vac instead of suck once - the surround ring hit the ceiling......

Chisel and rasp arrived - Post Office had been looking after them for a few days.

Chisel is brilliant - thanks!!

Rasp is also an answer to a problem - I bought another one but couldn't get it to work as well as the one I had used at Baileys - just tried this one on some scrap.  Already for the acoustic and a bass..........

Will I get away with the bass as it isn't adding to my guitar total........

Hot thing arrives from Baileys....

3A658DC2 498E 4F3D A590 5A2D66D45CB8

Also one box of bits for my acoustic - box of long bits tomorrow as DHL seems to have split them up in transit.

Very good price on the Ibex for members!

Totally hypothetical question:

If I ordered a little Triton 1400watt JOF001 router, and by some clerical error, a big Triton 2400watt TRA001 router got delivered instead, would I be right in thinking that (all ethical considerations aside) I should return  the big router because it’s actually too big and cumbersome for my guitar building needs?

Jack of all trades and master of my own destiny. It’s only a small destiny.

I have several routers but the one I use most is my (second hand) Dewalt DW621 - same model Mark uses - that claims to be 2hp so 1875 Watts - so somewhere between - I have my extended base on a cheaply but that is 2200 Watts but only gets used when  I need the extended base - also have a little Bosch POV 600 which is 600 Watts.

Sometimes a small base is good but round pointy horns the big base can make it easier to avoid the router tilting......

That may not have helped......
