Hi Everyone, I've just picked up a Triton Work centre 2000 on the strength of Ady Kings review in Good Woodworking earlier this year.
Problem is now I have it I can't find ANYWHERE that has any of the accesories for it. I can't even get the dustbag to aid dust collection!
Can anyone help?????
Daniel

Hi Daniel,
 
Sorry for not responding earlier, i've only just picked this thread up.
Anyway, the timing couldn't have been worse for Triton!
I visited Silverline back in October/November time (iirc) after they had taken on the Uk rights to sell Triton.
As we hadn't looked at Triton for a good few years it was the reasoning behind a revisit as it was certainly a good product back then, so worth a look to see how it fared in today's market.
I was also shown a load of new product by the guy from GMC (the parent company) who had flown in from Australia so it all seemed good.
Unfortunately, the week after we printed our feature, GMC went into receivership in Australia, which meant that Silverline had limited stocks and also limited, if any, spares available.
As far as i'm aware, the problem is still not resolved in Australia as they aren't allowing Triton to be sold as a seperate entity, it has to taken on as part of GMC, whih is the stumbling block. (not 100% sure on this, it seems to be the situation as I understand it)
Triton is still a very viable product, so it would be very foolish not to sell it on, so hopefully it will return to the market as they have some very inovative ideas and the products are very good.
The advice given earlier for spares is about the best bet at the moment i'm afraid. If I hear any news on Triton, i'll post it up here.
hope this clarifies a few things.
 
cheers,
Andy

A word from Australia.  We're devastated by what has happened. but the rumour is that Bosch might purchase the rights to make Triton tools.  I'm sure someone will as they are well respected around the world.   Keith McCarthy

There is some information on this page here about Triton.  Spare parts/accessories may be available again soon hopefully.

Thanks for the link Ian.
 
 There are many who still have Triton tools and are always grateful to learn of this.
 
Cheers

Daniel,
 
Further to my last post.  I have a found a shop called Hunter Tools.  They seem to have some stock of spares and accessories.  They even had a WCA400 which I have been looking for ages for (must be the last one anywhere!).  There is no on-line  ordering but given them a call and they will arrange delivery etc.  They are based in Surrey if you're local to there.
 
Or if you are after a dust bag, my local B & Q (Milton Keynes) have three left on clearance at £28.50.  If you are near there you could pop in, otherwise, if you want send me a message we can arrange so that I can get you one and post it on.
 
Ian
