It is a great little router.  I keep the posts cleaned and lubed with a little machine oil...otherwise they can stick.  There are several accessories and this router is very versatile with the right set-up.

Hi Frank,

You'll love the OF 1010, it's a corker of a machine. I've got some articles on my blog site, www.tutorwood.com, about setting up and using the 1010 router.

I'm currently working on articles about template routing and trammel routing gothic forms with the 1010

Please feel free to give me yell if you have any questions,

Cheers

"Trick" I read about on the forum that caused a bit of an AHA moment for me was, that when routing close to an edge with the edgeguide, you can use the guidestop for the rail on the other end of the bars for more stability. (works for the of1400 to)

Attached pic shows the of1400

Hi Frank this is a link to a reply I gave to a question about how to use the fine adjuster on the edge guide in addition to the  track guide. It links to my original reply on talkfestool but I added a little more information so you have to read them both.

Also the front and back and the side where the little plastic foot is show center marks -- very handy for lining up a dado or groove as the bit is centered at this mark.  The depth stop turret also as a little bit of give to it so when setting your depth, you need to fully depress the depth adjuster into the stop until the depth stop turret is bottomed out.  The reason for this "give" is to allow the depth turrret to move easily from one position to the next.  I think that this is common on all of Festool's plunge routers...this is not a defect by any means, but something that is good to know as the depth of your cuts could be off by a small amount (deeper than you might have intended).  The top of the machine is considered a handle and the perfect position when plunging straight down with the LR32, for example.

You will also see little ref marks around the base of the router. This is to mark the bit. I also recently discovered after talking to the Festool rep Alan that its also where the chip deflector attaches to the base.

Thanks for the info.

I used to use a PC 690 as my work horse for non table routing, untill I got the 1010.

Now I have to buy new 1/4 / 8mm shank  router bits as most of mine are 1/2 shank.

I perfer the bigger shank in most situations.

Bryan,
How did you know where to place the trammel point to draw then route the cool design?
I also assume that it needed to be routed in a specific order. VERY COOL.
