2 Meter profiles for MFT/3
« on: June 04, 2020, 01:16 PM »
Hi Folks,

    I was just perusing EKATS and found a listing for the 2 meter profiles under the 495314 MFT/3 listing. The part number listed is 496824 and the price is $252.12 apiece. Interesting, but a fairly pricey upgrade. Of course, one would need to make a top but it looks like it's out there.... [scared]

Or screw them (or pieces) onto things (or walls) you want to attach MW 1000 tables to.

I ordered these from a Festool parts distributor in the USA. It took about five months for the order to be shipped out to me, but the item was delivered in early May - to one of their customers in New York state by mistake.

I've been working with the distributor to have their NY customer return them, but that does not appear to have happened yet since it's been over three weeks since they were going to be sent over to me in Iowa.

Maybe use EBAY from Germany, that's how I received a 5 Meter folding ruler and I don't speak German. 

Use Google translate and hope for the best.

Sorry to hear about your experience. FWIW, I will attempt to contact Festool USA at some point to ask them about those parts. Pretty busy right now as I'm only very part time at Woodcraft, but I do have some contacts. I reckon if one used either the MFT/3 guide rail mounts and protractor/fence or guide rail clips and dogs with aftermarket accessories, having a bigger table top would be a huge win. I'm thinking here of an ideal cutting station as well as a glue-up for edge joined panels.

As rst mentioned, I’ve also purchased Euro only Festool stuff from the UK.

PM me for their name, address and email.

Box, did you buy the long MFT side rails or the two meter NAINA rails.

I bought the two meter ( previously ) NAINA rails.

I found them first at mmTools, but then again later at the local Festool dealer.

As mentioned earlier, I ordered these from ACME Tools - the order was placed two weeks ago. One pair arrived today, but were damaged on one end from having been dropped somewhere.

I left the store without the profiles, but these are the two meter long profiles.

Could someone provide a photo of the profiles. I’m likely going to purchase my first mft and I’m curious. Thanks in advance

See https://www.festoolownersgroup.com/festool-jigs-tool-enhancements/mft3-profile-image-and-measurements/msg258160/#msg258160 for the end profile and some rough measurements.

See https://grabcad.com/library/701507 for the 3D profile as CAD files.

Thank you Garry!! New to FT, Ekat etc etc trying to learn as quickly as I can. I’m much better as visually seeing things than research.

@GarryMartin -  Thanks, Garry!  I am planning a modification to my Minimax SC2 saw to replace the steel tables with a larger MFT-like table. Your diminsioned drawing of the Festool aluminum extrusion helps me find mating extrusion to serve as the interface between my saw and the new table.

@MikeGE There are some good options for 3D printing too; check out Thingiverse. Various Festool bits on there, including options that make use of the profile for brackets etc.
