TSO Products MFT Aligned Guide Rail Support Upgrade Kit

Restore Confidence In The Accuracy And Repeatability Of Your MFT/3

In the workshop or on the jobsite, it's tough to beat Festool's MFT/3 multifunction table for clamping, sanding, plunge cutting, routing, and many other common woodworking tasks. We're big fans of the MFT/3, but we've also heard a common complaint from the TSO user community: the guide rail supports on the MFT/3 are prone to deflection and, once perfectly squared, can easily move out of square—especially when adjusting vertically to accommodate different workpiece material thickness. The result is frequent and often tedious re-squaring operations or, worse yet, accuracy issues which don't become apparent until glue-up or final assembly.

To achieve accurate and repeatable results on the MFT/3, it's critical to minimize any movement in the bracket assemblies attaching the guide rail support to the table's front and back extrusions, as well as restrict movement of the guide rail to just the vertical axis. With the plastic components utilized in the original MFT/3 design, this is easier said than done.

The MFT Aligned upgrade kit solves this common problem by replacing Festool's stock plastic mounting brackets located on both the front and back guide rail supports with precision CNC-machined brackets made from 6061-T6 aluminum. These new brackets are much more rigid and—because we're able to hold much tighter tolerances in aluminum—they also provide a more precise and uniform fit against Festool's sliding metal bracket used for height adjustment. For additional support and more even clamping pressure, we also added a second comfort grip knob and a series of beveled protrusions effectively wedging the bracket to the table's side extrusion. The result is a much stronger guide rail support less prone to deflection and less likely to move out of square during normal operation.

Finally, this upgrade kit includes a precision aluminum Guide Rail Insert. This insert slides into the guide rail's bottom t-track, helping to locate and guide the "finger" feature of the front bracket into the underside of the guide rail. In addition to preventing wear, this insert also helps limit movement of the guide rail.

To keep costs down and eliminate waste, the MFT Aligned upgrade kit re-uses some components from Festool's original hinge bracket. As such, it requires minor assembly once you receive it. For a step-by-step walkthrough of the assembly process, refer to our detailed Assembly Guide (PDF) or watch this Assembly Video.

Please Note: The MFT Aligned Upgrade Kit is not compatible with the MFT 1080 or 800.
