A Week In The Workshop 171


Direct video link - https://youtu.be/imjbtddfdF4


Hi everyone. There’s a few more thoughts on the Triton Doweller this week, after I’ve had the chance to use it a bit more on the drawer builds. The drawers worked out pretty well, but a couple of niggles - and an explicable omission - on the doweller makes me really struggle to understand who this is aimed at in the market.


In other news, I have a couple of social things going on in the next couple of weeks, including a trip to Berlin courtesy of Amazon! I've never been to Berlin - and honestly not sure how much of it I’ll get to see, given the schedule - but I think it’ll be a fascinating event, and I suspect I’ll very much be in the minority in terms of age/ influencer audience/ genre etc…


None of which takes anything away from an all expenses paid trip to Berlin, of course, but the schedule will mean that I’m unlikely to have a mid-week vid out for you on the 15th, just FYI.


Anyway, that’s a couple of weeks away or thereabouts, and there’s lots to do before then!

A little bit of housekeeping before I go; these posts and the midweek catch-ups will start to go behind the paywall for members on paid plans - I did the first last of these last week with Midweek 117 and while there's a clearly a couple of kinks to iron out, overall it worked as planned, so I'll be continuing along that path with future member content.

Thank you, as always, for your amazing support, and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Peter.

Welcome to Germany;). I don’t live in Berlin and was there only 2-3 times, so I can‘t give any tips. Still it has much to offer.

Danke! Don’t think I’ll get to see much of the city, but looking forwards to the trip! 👍

Didn’t know you were an F1 fan too Peter. Good man. Although it looks like the championship is already over this year already. 🤨

Really interesting analysis on the Triton dowler. It's always a question of comprimises when using tools at a midranged price. I've come across similar issues with many tools I've bought and used. Triton should make the improvements suggested by you (and I'm sure many other woodworkers) and just raise the price £100. That would put the tool smack in the middle between their biscuit joiner and the Mafell. Maybe in the next version?

Cheers Paul. Yes, a bit if a swing & miss from Triton really, when it could be so much better. 🤷‍♂️👍

You want that triton to work so bad its so near yet so far away from being the accurate tool you require so disappointing getting a tool you have high hopes for and doesn’t work the way you expect to enjoy your trip next Berlin is great shame you not there to long loads to do there they have an amazing zoo 😂

It’s maddening that it fails at the simplest of tasks, when they seem to have sorted out the fundamental issues. But it’s too cheap to do what they intend, and too costly to do what it actually does. 🤷‍♂️👍

Hope you have a great time. I have been but it was pre-wall falling. It was a lovely city, even then.
