FS-OF 1000 Guiderail adapter (488752) alternatives?
« on: July 29, 2020, 06:57 AM »
When I bought my used OF1010 plunge router, it didn't include the FS-OF 1000 guide rail adapter.

The FS-OF 1000 costs about 35€ which I find a bit much for a piece of plastic with a knob and 2 screws.

I'm not looking for a cheaper alternative but maybe something more expensive, durable and maybe even a micro adjuster of some kind. I'd rather spend 50-75€ on something like that than 35€ on a piece of plastic with 1 function.

Is there such a third party piece? I've looked at some 3rd party manufacturers but without success.

I remembered reading years ago about the microfence system, and it sounded like what you describe. I looked it up, but the price is 10x that of the festool part. link

Thank you Gregor. Adding the 1st party micro adjuster makes it a little better. Still not a big fan of all the plastic but better than "just the plastic thing".

That looks super great but the x10 price is a big oof. But to remember when I have some spare bucks!
