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.

Take a look at this video from Marc Spagnuolo, the Wood Whisperer, where he checks out the various router models offered by Festool.

Wood Whisperer Festool Router Review

From the minute you push the power button, you'll see what's different about a Festool router. Well-balanced, exceptionally ergonomic, powerful and precision to four thousands of an inch. You'll also notice what's missing: dust, and lots of it. When combined with a Festool CT HEPA Dust Extractor, your routing tasks are virtually dust free. Add innovations, like the ratcheting collet which only requires one wrench to operate, and you'll see that we avoided the shortcomings of other routers when designing the OF 1010 and OF 1400.

For a comprehensive review of the OF 1400 router and many of its accessories, check out this video from Paul-Marcel St. Onge of the Half Inch Shy blog.
