Coming October 1st - See it in action!

Last month, we announced the upcoming introduction of the new Festool CMS Router Tableand it looks like many of you like what you've seen so far. This month, we'll share some videos and other content with you so you can see the CMS in action and to help get you up and running once you get it in your shop.

Our good friend, Marc Spagnuolo a.k.a. The Wood Whisperer, takes a look at the new CMS Router Table in this video. Marc talks about what he views as some of the benefits and does some routing to let you see the CMS in operation. Check out the video on Marc's CMS blog post and be sure to post your comments and questions at the bottom of the page. And, we're digging the cool Christmas Story leg lamp, Marc.
