OF 1010 & 1400 Routers

 

It's time to take a new route.

We believe that routing shouldn't be a messy task, leaving you looking like a snowman covered head to toe in wood chips and dust. Experience the way woodworking should be with the Festool family of plunge routers, including the highly awarded OF 1010 and OF 1400 routers. These two routers are compatible with the soon-to-be-released CMS Router Table and are guaranteed to change the way you approach routing tasks forever.
