Known as a module edge router by Festool, this is a very versatile tool with interchangeable bases to widen its uses and ensure very positive handling and accuracy. Just by handling this tool you will see the advantage of the bases being easily interchangeable, and how simple handling and guiding the cutter is, as well as the adjustability. The standard base can be used with or without the side fence. The motor being in the vertical position allows for a wide range of hand routing, guiding the router where needed. With the extended trimming base fitted, the motor is in a horizontal position. The cutter is then guided by the bearing assembly to give extremely accurate trimming of solid edges and laminates, with pressure applied exactly where needed. Extraction outlets are fitted on the bases as well as the fence for optimum extraction. The 720W motor has an electronic speed adjustment switch to ensure maximum power and speed selection depending on material and cutter. The motor also has a temperature monitor for long service life.
Supplied as a set in a SYSTAINER® T-LOC case with the following accessories: 1/4" and 8mm collets, parallel side fence with fine adjuster and extraction hood, 1.5° router table trimming base and bearing follower, tarnishing pad and extraction hood.

time saverI've had one of these for a few years now. I can't believe how much time and energy I spent trimming edging materials and lippings by other methods. I flies through it accurately and consistently with no fear of ruining the workpiece.
