Newbie setup

Hi everybody
I'm considering getting started in woodworking as a hobby and would like a bit of advise on the setup I am considering. I'm currently looking at getting the Triton Workcentre 2000 with the router table, the triton saw and the triton router. I like the idea that they come with some demonstration videos and project books. Is this a good setup to start with? Are there any other similar setups that I should consider?
Thanks

Yes it is not too bad a setup to begin with. If you then find you wish to persue woodworking more, than you might find the need to upgrade to a contractors or cabinet saw later on to accept generic jigs. The triton table has proprietry miter slots. For portability though, the Triton is great, and its hard to go past the Triton Router, particularly for table use!

Igor,
there are a few options, Timbecon sell a machined steel table that takes a circular saw in the same manner as the Triton.
see http://www.timbecon.com.au/products.asp?catid 508&parentid471 or http://svc010.bne011i.server-web.com/catalogue/carbatec2/cache/header-488public__0-0.html?cache=no
(watch the wrap)
There is also a nice machine made by the Kiwis (that I could not find a link to) that is worth considering.
The Triton itself is a very capable system, as Dean said. Of course, I'll say that as I am selling my 2000 workcentre to move up to a cabinet saw. If you are in Melbourne area and interested in a second hand (VGC) Triton, ping me on email. T2000, Triton circular saw, sliding table, mitre fence, dust collector system etc.
There is a thriving market on second hand Tritons so look into them on the classifieds.
cheers,
Greg
