I haven't gotten mine yet, but you need to call Festool USA.  Part number should be 10293265.

I had one delivered recently with some shipping damage and they sent me this to identify the needed replacement parts.  Hopefully this helps to double check PN's.

Do I have to call to order parts now? I remember at one time, I think, being able to order directly from the site.

Has anybody tried the add-on jig ideas with 10293275(#9 'Clamp').  The longer wood supports use a couple of those each to attach to the frame

That’s exactly what I’m thinking of doing - making an assembly top for the STM.
Something that I can leave on my plywood cart when I don’t need it.
The trick would be getting it super flat.  Using 4 brackets sounds like it would work well

@jarbroen

I used ultra light weight MDF ripped down the center. The brackets hold it to the STM well and the weight of whatever Im assembling keeps the MDF flat enough .

Mike Goetz ( sorry mike cant remember how to correctly spell your name) suggested using domino connectors to hold the 2 pieces securely together. i dont have the connectors yet but if i did I would use Mikes suggestion. The issue for me is to find a place to set the MDF when not in use. Also I found that 8' is a little to long for the STM so I cut it down to 7' long. I think 6' might be a little better.

Hope this helps

@jobsworth  Thanks for the feedback and tips!

I agree on 6' being a good length.  On heavy, full sheets I noticed the end support bars have a tendency to sag a bit.  Don't want any sagging in an assembly table.  I'd probably want just a slight overhang to the square frame structure which would be about that 6' length.
The connectors is a good tip.  You could even use the connectors to attach the top to the wood supports.  Just be careful not to cut the connectors when the assembly top is off. :). That's something I would accidentally do...

Guess I need to make a trip back to my lumber supplier to check out their MDF.  Cool thing about the STM is the weight of assembly top isn't a big deal since the table lifts it!

Thats why I recommended 6' though 7' would work. I havent noticed any sagging at the ends. I guess it depends on how you cut the wood pieces that the brackets mount to. I I ripped them screwed them to the brackets and if they were to big or small I cut the big ones to fit , to small just made a couple of more. Lemmy check my shop set up thread, see if i put the size of the pieces when i talked about it.

Heres what I wrote in my setting up shop thread. I have some photos as well its on page 12 of that thread. but heres what i wrote and even got mikes nae spelt right :>D

>>>Ok so I think I solved my problem connecting the assy top to the STM. I ended up using 4 brackets/clips/terminal one on each end of the STM.

I used 2" thick pine I had left over cut to 70mm which is the size of the large wooden piece on the ends of the STM.

I took a festool rabbiting bot that I bought back from the UK and didnt mount my 2200 in my CMS and routed a rabbit to fit the bracket/clip/terminal. Photo of the rabbiting bit its the only bit that FT has that mounts to a arbor (sold seperately of course)

so I posted photos of the rabbited wood and the wood in the brackets. Now to secure the top to the bracket/wood.

Im thinking I might add a couple screws from the top and adjust the top so I can use a through domino from the 700. that should hold it securely

Mike Goetzke suggested that I use connectors to keep the sides together, thats a great Idea. Im gonna use it when I get my hand on some connectors or get the kit.<<<

I'll check out the pictures in your other thread.  Sometimes I have to see something to help my little brain understand.

I ran to the closest, non-big box, lumber store at lunch.  Their 3/4" MDF looked like saggy poo, but they had a flat stack of 1" so I grabbed a sheet of the really heavy stuff.  I realize I won't be able to use some accessories if I decide to cut dog holes.  Not a problem though as I already have MFT's for that stuff.

I really appreciated the STM when I could roll it up to my folded down tailgate and slide that ridiculously heavy sheet right on.

If ya can use the 3/4 ultra lightweight MDF Its lighter then the 3/4 ply I was using to build my shop cabinets
