Precision. A product of ultimate adjustability.
The Festool CMS Router Table allows you to easily dial in every adjustment point
for uncompromising precision. It all starts with the standard top-mounted height
adjustment, which is usually an expensive upgrade with most high-end router tables.
Your Festool OF 1010 or OF 1400 router has a flat surface that engages the integrated
router lift. A handle is inserted into the top of the router table and is used to
crank the lift to raise or lower the router bit height. Optionally, the handle can
also be used to adjust the height from under the router table. The handle can be
stored on the front of the CMS.
The CMS router bit height can be finely adjusted in 1/256-inch (1/10 mm) increments.
Fully adjustable fence.
The fence design of the CMS Router Table exceeds the basic fence design common to
so many router tables today. Independently adjustable sides with precision micro-adjustment
are just the beginning. The real key to effective and safe router table usage is
the ability to maneuver the workpiece through the table with control and safety.
The integrated hold-downs and featherboard-like action of the guarding assembly
not only help to minimize exposure to the cutter, but they also help to keep even
and consistent pressure on the material for precise, reliable cuts. Limitless adjustability
backed by Festool build-quality guarantees the most precise routing system available,
helping you to achieve better results in less time.
Sliding table and miter gauge.
The optional sliding table provides even greater functionality to the CMS Router
Table. It multiplies the surface area of the table which translates to greater controllability
when maneuvering material and it increases the transfer of stock on the table by
providing a rolling support surface that moves with the workpiece. With its integrated,
adjustable stop points it is easy to set up repeat cuts like stopped dados. Also
built-in to the sliding table are multiple mounting points for the optional miter
gauge assembly with fence. In conjunction with the sliding table, the miter gauge
provides the means to set angles as well as clamp the material to the fence of the
gauge and move the entire piece in harmony with the sliding table.
A key component to use with the sliding table, the Miter Gauge provides a strong
reference for the placement of stock for repeatable and accurate routing. Use for
routing miters, angled cope routs, and many other angled joints. Attaching
the miter gauge to the sliding table ensures smooth, accurate, and consistent cuts
with less friction than in-table T-slots making repeatability a breeze. The attached
fence has an integrated T-slot for attaching clamps for secure and stable routing
of the workpiece.
Chip guard with start pin.
The chip guard with start pin allows for great maneuverability of the workpiece
when using bearing guided bits while providing excellent dust extraction. The Festool
chip guard design provides great visibility of the cutter and workpiece while minimizing
exposure to the cutter for a safe and reliable cut. The starting pin allows guidance
into the cut as an index point while doing freehand edge work like raised panels,
coves, roundovers, beads, etc. The Festool starting pin design is unique as it is
more than a pin, it is also an elongated guide with a tapered end that can be set
to rest on the bearing of the bit allowing full control to the cut.
