    Festool Routing Template mfs 700 or mfs 400

    Hello, thank you for the replies :D . I do like the idea of the mfs because of the accuracy of the parts and at least you have the confidence that it will be square every time without adjustment. However the cost of the mfs compared to making some jigs/templates is hard to justify...

    Festool Routing Template mfs 700 or mfs 400

    Hello, Just wondered if anybody had used this template. In theory it seems like a good idea. I assume it would help reduce the amount of homemade templates you would normally keep/make in the workshop. http://festool.safeshopper.com/456/385.htm?706 Any info would be appreciated Thank you Michel
