OF 2200 Circle Cutting Accessory?
« on: December 13, 2016, 06:36 AM »
The third in a series of OF 2200 inquiries :).

Is there such a thing as an OF 2200 trammel unit?

Can the OF 1010 trammel unit be used with the OF 2200?

I have a Micro Fence circle cutting attachment that will do circles of up to 48" in diameter, and it does a very nice job, but I don't have the mounting bar for the OF 2200.

Any other Festool-supported techniques for circle cutting with the OF 2200 that I'm missing?

MFS

Can't find it in the US.  It does seem to be available in Canada at Lee Valley, but they won't ship Festool to the US.

I use the rail guide like this one ans swap out one of the knobs with the knob that comes with your fence which is a bit longer, I find the setup works very well

There is no trammel attachment for the 1400 or 2200, and the MFS has been discontinued. You might still be able to find one somewhere, but it sounds like some other folks have some creative solutions.

Why not get the mounting bar from Microfence?  Isn't it only $40?  That way you can leverage your existing investment in a very nice accessory.

I don't see the OF 2200 listed in the section for mounting bars, but they do have it listed for the edge guide and circle jig, so I bet it's just an oversight, and they have it.

That looks like the best solution for now, but I'll check the other ones that don't involve driving to Canada.  It's listed with the mounting bars, but it's not alphabetized where you would expect.
