Festool's multi-function portable worktable (MFT) works with Festool's saws, routers, and guide rails to become a fantastically versatile and efficient workbench for both the workshop and the job site. Here in New York City, where space is at a premium, we also know a few people doing home remodeling in an apartment or small house where the multi-function table is the entire workbench. It's much easier to move the workshop to the project room than move every bit of molding and stuff to the basement to be cut or sanded.
Note: If you purchase any MFT table at the same time as a Festool tool you will receive 10% off of the price of the table only (discount is calculated in the cart).
The MFT consists of a sturdy table with perforated top and foldaway legs. The replaceable sacrificial top is heavy made of heavy MDF and is drilled for stops, clamps and other useful attachments. A typical use of the MFT is with a circular saw and a guide rail to work as a cutoff saw. The standard MFT package includes a guide rail, an angle unit, and a stop for that purpose. But it's a great base for sanding and routing and really encourages easy productive setups. The entire unit easily folds up for transport, and you can set it back up in seconds. And of course, since it's from Festool, it's rock solid. We should also mention that being able to work at a comfortable height at a jobsite is light years ahead of cobbling up something makeshift or working on the floor. We love the rubber foot caps protect the floor, and the adjustable leveling foot that lets you compensate for any floor irregularities.
A thought on the Festool "system": With the multi-function table and a vacuum for working clean, you have the proper workspace to work on a project anywhere in your house without worrying about getting dust in the project room, or tracking everything all over the place.
The MFT includes a guide rail; two guide rail supports; an angle unit; 42" guide rail and fence rail clamp; adjustable stop; and deflector. You can also get the basic table without any accessories but that is usually only recommended for people who already have a table and the accessories and just want to have more work surface.
The Mini table is a smaller, lower table originally designed to work with the Kapex Chop saw. The difference in height between the mini table and the regular MFT/3 table is designed so if you put your Kapex on the Mini table the feed table of the Kapex will be level with the full sized MFT/3. It's the height difference of a Sys 1 systainer.
