    Hi, there is a compact triton that looks interesting.

    Anyone had experience with either of these models?

    unless you have largish projects like panel moldings [router table]
    or worktop cutting
    i suggest you look at router around 8-1100w [1/4"] as the ease off handling will give you far more confidence compared to a larger router
    as they can be very frightening with the greater power an weight

    its very difficult to hold a large router flat on a 21mm bit off wood without experience even then it can be awkward

    Yes of course you are right. For the basic projects I have planned too big a router will make it a chore for me.
    Had a hold of this yesterday which was quite light and felt comfortable.
    Makita RP0900 900W Plunge Router 240V. Because of the plunge and almost the same price I have it ahead of the Bosch palm router I had in mind.
    What do you think about the makita?

    Got me a couple of b&q vouchers and thought the Trend 1/4" router bit sets looked okay?

    trend are a good reliable make
    they have 3 quality levels possibly more

    my suggestion is get a cheap genneric set first
    buy a set at the bottom end[2-£3] a cutter then as you decide the ones you use the most go for 10-£20 a cutter
    and the very important rebate cutter and alternative bearings around the £40 mark
    look at toledo from rutland
    http://www.rutlands.co.uk/pp+woodworking-power-tool-accessories-router-cutter-sets+c08000
    and wealdon tools also do a good selection
