CMS Router Table - What is this part?
« on: May 15, 2018, 08:31 PM »
Got my CSM table put together, all is well, except I can't figure out what this is.  There's a small chain, about 12 inches long, connected to the inside bottom of the table that hangs down with a small plastic piece connected at the end.  The chain had a small, square magnet attached as well.  I've attached photos.  Can't find anything in the manual and it's not referenced in the youtube video.  Help?

I believe this is the trigger clip if you put a TS55 saw in the table to keep the saw in an 'on' position. 

The side table switch is then how you turn it off and on.

Yep, it’s the trigger clamp. The other plastic piece holds the riving knife slide in place.

Well thank you very much!  Seems like an odd thing to attach a trigger lock for a saw to a router table, but it's nice to know I don't need it.

The CMS will accept the TS- 55 and TS-75, Festool does not market the plates in North America. In North America the 2200 is not an approved router in the CMS, yet all the parts needed to install the 2200 are in the kit (at least they were when I got my CMS).

Hey Thom,

Since they come in the kit in NA, can I order the clip through FT USA?

Just curious.

Thanks
