Mfk 700 modification by half inch shy
« on: May 21, 2017, 03:04 PM »
I was watching videos by paul marcel(half inch shy) and he was talking about a modification he was going to make to his mfk 700 so he can use longer router bits. Does any one know the link so I can see exactly what he did?
Thanks

Has anyone ever tested the proposition of whether this is warranty voiding?

I don't own a mfk 700, but given that you modify a removable base, if you have a warranty issue (that is not related to using a longer than intended bit), you can just send the tool in with the non modified base.

So has anyone else tried this? Any addition tips on the modification or reasons not to do it?

I’ve done it and it works great.  In my opinion it should have been made this way.

It should not effect warranty,  its a modification of an accessory and not the tool.

I agree not sure why they would limit the capacity to 5/8". What bit are you using?

Longer bits = higher chance of wobble = unsatisfying edge.
