I'm sorry as I'm sure this must have been asked before, but is it possible to buy the accessories which come with the MFT/3 with accessories package deal - i.e. the swivel unit, support unit, angle stop, adjustable stop, guide rail FS 1080/2, deflector FS-AW and additional clamp for securing the stop rail to the V-groove?

I have the chance to buy the basic MFT/3 for a good price, but can't find anywhere the accessories which would make it the ideal table for my garage workshop.

Can anyone advise if this is possible, from Festool or elsewhere, and how much it would cost - I'm worried all of these individually or even as a kit but not with the table would make the deal less enticing.

Many thanks, James

If you have room, a double MFT is great. I bought a full up MFT and a bare bones MFT and linked them together. Makes a wonderful work bench.

Forgive me, for I know very little about the MFT table at the moment - though I am researching building my own, and some time ago I searched out this link: http://festoolownersgroup.com/festool-tools-accessories/mft-guide-rail-pivots-on-a-normal-workbench/

Does this help in any way?  I'm not sure of all the terminology surrounding MFT tables, but perhaps the part numbers in that thread may prove useful to you?

EDIT: In the original thread, someone posted a link to the exploded view of an MFT3.  For me that link did not work, but I found this one: http://ekat.festool.de/login/jsp/main.jsp?doAction=start&autologin=true&userId=US-Kunde-FT_US&password=Customer&design=festool - click "Workplace Organisation" then "MFT3" then "495314 MFT/3" - there are two exploded diagrams there.

If only I could make sense of the diagrams myself, I'd know which parts I needed - but I've never seen an MFT, so I'm not sure how to advise you from here as to what you want and what is available as a spare part (if what I have found is even what you want at all!)

I would check eBay and Craigslist. I have seen people selling off all the MFT hardware when they purchased a second complete MFT unit. Not common but does show up at times.
The MFT is very useful even without the hardware. Just insert 20mm dogs of some sort.
