To my knowledge the CMS-GE cannot be attached to the MFT/3 table with any parts from Festool. They sell the CMS-VL module that is meant to be attached always to an MFT/3 table and that one has suitable side rails and connectors available for the connection. Notice that the GE-units side rails are a single V-groove vs. the MFT/3 and CMS-VL share the MFT/3's side rails so the VL connectors won't work with the GE base.

You can see both briefly in video from JMB showing both.

The GE is not the correct dimensions (depth) to attach to the MFT/3. Like Reiska pointed out, the VL would be a better option. However, the GE is the proper height to align with the top of the MFT/3, but there's no method for a physical connection.

Shouldn't be too hard to make your own connector.

The v-grooves are the key, I think.

I just made a solution using some 16x16mm triangle lists, and a 22mm piece of wood. I don't have the incra positioner, but it is on my wishlist. Sorry for the bad image quality.

Thinking outside the box.  How about using the kapex crown adapter similar to the following thread.

All u need is some dog holes for the incra fence for positioning.
