What do you need it for?

I think anybody should really know what this table where made for. This is not your main saw table, it can not be, simply because it wasn't meant that way. I think this is a wonderful piece of equipment. Portable and precise, you can expand it at your need. The sliding table is superb, a bit small but smooth and fine adjustable. The mitre fence supplied with the cms module works as it should and it's sturdy once you tight it up. The material which is all some kind of aluminium alloy its as sturdy as light weighted. The only complain goes to the price, the whole unit with all accessories comes at a crazy price which it makes it almost unreachable for most personal shop and small business workers. I'd say, do you need it? really need it? if the answer is yes I guess you already have all the heavy stuff in your shop and you need something small and portable but with the very good quality you would expect from Festool.

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.

Would I trade it in for a spindle moulder? Not a chance, but then I don't have much use for a spindle moulder.

Not good enough

Bought 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.
