The Euro 32mm system of cabinet design and construction uses rows of 5mm holes drilled on 32mm centres. The boring of the system holes in the cabinet side panels requires a high level of accuracy. Typically, panel production uses large stationary in-line boring machines or CNC router tables. For the small cabinetmaker or bespoke kitchen builder the Festool LR 32-SYS Hole Drilling Set offers you an accurate hole-boring system that is easy to set up, efficient and easy to use. This portable line boring system allows you to carry out work on site that traditionally would only have been possible with large stationary equipment. Festool recommend using either their OF 1010 and OF 1400 router. The system also requires an additional guide rail with holes series LR 32. The results far surpass any other shelf-drilling jig, being far more accurate. With increased productivity and greater accuracy, items such as this pay for themselves quickly through faster production times and quicker job turnaround. Included in a Systainer case are guide plate, centring mandrel, operating wrench, 35 mm carbide-tipped European hinge boring bit, 2 carbide-tipped 5 mm shelf pin bits (one for through holes and one for stopped pin holes), 2 parallel side fences with adjustable stop, 2 longitudinal stops and 2 FSZ 100 clamps.

LR32 SystemThis is a great bit of kit but buyers be ware there is no mention on any Festool literature telling buyers that it requires an 8mm collett. This is stated as being optional but is ESSENTIAL if you want to use the LR32 System.
