MFT 1080 DXF File for Replacement Top
« on: February 03, 2021, 08:22 AM »
I need a replacement top for a MFT 1080.  I have found a local CNC shop that can do the work at a reasonable price (less than it would cost for any of the jigs to make a top) but I need a DXF file to provide to the fabricator. TSO has a set of DXF files and the one listed as "similar" to the MFT 1080 produces a table that is 1321mm x 736mm while the Festool spec sheet for the 1080 says 724x1164. 

I guess I can trim to fit the table but there might be some wonky placement of holes, have not figured that out yet.  In the mean time, is there a CNC file somewhere that gives an exact replacement top for the MFT 1080?

Thanks

I think TSO has those available for free.

Yes, TSO does have a set of DXF files that they generous provide fo free.  Kudos to them for that.  But, the issue for me is that the PDF that accompanies the DXF file shows the dimensions I noted in the first post and those are different (larger) than the dimensions of the actual MFT 1080 table.

Turns out to be a non-issue as long as I have the existing top the CNC shop said they can make an exact replica.  Fortunately, I have two MFT tables so the table that was not broken can be used to make a new top.

In the future the TSO file will be useful for me as I set up a new shop and use holey tips for some of the new built in work benches.
