Featuring a host of features, this router offers easier safer operation, along with the power and accuracy to perform a wide range of precision routing applications. The OF 1010 EBQ-Plus is ideal for all jointing, grooving and decorative moulding as well as fine inlay and trimming operations. The depth adjustment allows accuracy to 1/10th of a millimetre and when using the supplied chip deflector and suitable extraction, dust is kept to a minimum. In line with most Festool power tools the router features the plug it system with a detachable power cable enabling the fast swapping of Festool tools or easy cable replacement. The clever design of this router allows easy one handed operation either with the Festool guide rail system or freehand. The OF1010 can also be used in combination with the Festool Compact Module system (CMS) which would give you an excellent router table set-up with virtually unlimited options.

expensive mistakeneeded a small router to replace my old makita, as 90% of my tools are festool i purchased the router ,door hanging was the main use ,big mistake the position of the handle means that i cant rout out the hinges on the frame without setting up the fence on the opposite side, also feel the view of the cutter is poor ,not impressed!!!!! new makita bought!!!!

solid little router but evil marketingGreat to use but why is there no collar and it has the rail adapter thing in the box something I didnt need and just gets in the way in the box ,no micro adjustment on fence also the fence bars are a tad short with the normal fence so must be less with the micro adjustment bit on.

Rubbish...I've used many routers over my 35odd years in carpentry, and this is without doubt the worst of the the bunch. At first, it seems to cover all the bases, lightweight, powerful and with all the features you would expect. I was chuffed to bits when I bought it. The worst aspect for me is the template ring. I use a lot of jigs, (mainly for hanging doors). As with most routers, the ring fixes to the baseplate with two screws but it doesn't self centre. I only found this out after ages wondering what was wrong with my jigs.... You have to use a centring cone (which is 8mm only). It is not supplied with the tool and Festool charge for this. I only found this out after the tool was sent back to them for the baseplate to be checked for alignment. After an strong discussion they agreed to supply the centring cone FOC. The frustration I get when swopping from one job to the other, having to change collects from 6mm to 8mm and back again means I often get the 1/2" out and use that instead.

Quality piece of kitThis router is a joy to use, it is very light which makes plunging effortless. The switch can be locked, saving on aching fingers. The one hand system and clear view of the router bit makes for accurate locating when plunging. I use the Numatic stepped hose reducer which fits over the oval dust outlet port attached to a Henry vacuum for dust extraction. I think the fine depth adjustment screw system could be improved on, but overall a very good machine

review of my reviewJust an update of my previous review considering the rating I gave this router and I've noticed I made a little oversight in marking it only four stars for features. It has many. The concern over quality has been addressed as once the columns were oiled and worked in they no longer stick.
