Festool MFT/3 Workbench

Festool_-mft3.jpgAlong with the two routers (MFK 700 and OF 2200), Festool has also just announced the release of their new workbench, the MFT/3. From the looks of it, Festool has combined and improved the best aspects of their previous two models (MFT 1080 and MFT 800).

The MFT/3 provides a 43" x 28" work surface at a height of 35-1/2". One of the four legs is slightly adjustable for use on uneven surfaces. The four edges of the workbench have tracks on them which allow you to join up multiple tables, giving you a larger workspace if needed. The entire until weighs 61 lbs and the legs fold up to make it somewhat portable.

The surface of the MFT/3 is peppered with holes that accept a wide variety of Festool clamps (sold separately), which can hold a work piece any number of ways. It can clamp on the side or on the top of the piece depending on your needs.

The MFT/3 can also function as sort of a cross-cut table saw with the use of Festool's Plunge Cut Saw, the angle fence and the guide rail system.

Another cool feature is that the tabletop can be flipped over once you work it to death, doubling the life of the surface.

As with the other new Festool tools, there's no word on price or official release date. The older model tables sell for about $350-$450, so this one is likely in that range, if not a bit more expensive. We'll keep you up to date as we find out more.
