I recently purchased a Festool 494070 MFT 800 Hardware Kit to build my version of the MFT equivalent. The kit was delivered today and I had 2 surprises! The fence for the mitre was bent and the guide rail (800mm) missing...

Before, I write to the store, I wish to confirm that the guide rail is actually part of the kit. At about $130, I am wondering if the 494070 includes the guide rail...the 800 mm rail alone retails at about $80...

The bent fence, I am confident, they will be happy to replace the item....

Thanks much in advance! I am new here and use Festool as a hobbyist, so pardon my ignorance :)

I believe this is what you get. The guide rail is included.

Thanks RL....

Google search leads to the link at Amazon. But, interestingly, the store I bought this from does not have an image. It does not list the contents in the description either. Hence, I was checking...

In any case, I am going to write and enquire about the same...

Yes, it should have the guide rail - same exact thing happened to me. The Festool authorized vendor had to call Festool and they did acknowledge the
rail was left out of the package....Festool drop shipped one to me. Very odd that it also happened to you. Everything else arrived o.k.
