The Basic Unit forms the base of the Compact Modular System (CMS) and provides a sturdy frame for all modules in the Festool range to fit into. The base unit is made of aluminium and magnesium, making it very light at 10.8kg and stable whilst being robust and very portable. The table has a no-volt-release switch fitted with a socket to plug the power tool into, ensuring maximum safety, control and ease of use. The legs fold for use on a bench and for transport. The feet have rubber caps and one is adjustable for uneven floors. Available for the 110V and 230V versions.

Wouldn't be without it...I've been using mine for about 4 years with the OF2200, OF1400 and OF1010 Festool routers. The OF1400 is best matched in my opinion because there's less weight for the rise/fall mechanism to deal with – when compared to the OF2200 – resulting in smoother movement and easier fine height adjustment yet with plenty of power for bigger jobs. It is pricey for sure but then it's a top-end product with a premium price-tag to match. It's worth the money in my opinion because it ticks so many boxes: it's accurate, lightweight, collapsable and adaptable, and it's built without compromise. The only improvements I would like to see are a quicker method of attaching and detaching the router and easier access for cutter changes.

Not good enoughBought this after a demo, it's a pretty good router table but you need to add both a very expensive router adapter plate and a very nice router. At about £1400 all in I wish I'd saved up and bought a proper spindle moulder.
