First post- whats included with my tools?
« on: April 08, 2019, 08:07 AM »
Just purchased a rotox 90 ts 55 and mft3 table. I dont know if im reading the packaging right or not.
    Rotox looks like it comes w a punch of pads 3 circular and 3 triangle attachments. Mine only seems to come w a cicular and 1 triangle and 2 pads.
   Track saw package shows it comes w 2 clamps as well. Is that true?
   Mft3 table didnt come w protactor or the stands that hold up the track.

 I still have to open my ct mini but my clamp set is all there. Any help is appreciated.

Welcome to the forum.

The card included on the systainer actually shows all (or most) available accessories for that particular tool, and not just what's included with your initial purchase.

I would refer to the manual or festool site to double check that you have gotten all the proper accessories that are part of the tool's purchase price.

The tracksaw does not come with the clamps -- you have to buy those separately.

On the MFT, I assume you bought the basic rather than the full setup, which is why you didn't get the protractor or other accessories?

The Rotex 90 comes with one circular backing pad, one triangular one, and I think two sheets of sander paper (ridiculous really).
The track saw is sold in various set deals but does not generally come with clamps.

Slow learner first  [welcome] to the FOG.

Festool for the most part sells its accessories ala cart. Which is why if they do sell a kit version of a tool most of us have learned to buy the kit.

The MFT basic as others have said is just a MFT. The MFT set 495315 (most expesive one $720 ,i think) it

Includes:

Guide rail supports (2x)
Angle unit (protractor head)
Fence rail
Fence rail clamp
Adjustable stop
Guide rail FS 1080 (42")
Hose deflector

he clamps ect are sold ala cart. Since you are just staring out, I suggest you pick up the limited edition set of MFT camping accessories. It has about everything you will need in one kit organized in a systainer.

Its not cheap but you will have about everything clamp wise you will need.

https://festools-online.com/new-products/201311-festool-sys-mft-fx-clamping-set.html

If you want the accessories and havent cut into/ used  your table yet I suggest you have a chat with your dealer, or call festool service .and have a chat with them as to how to resolve this. Theyre pretty good at handling issues like this. Your not the first one who misordered the MFT(if you wanted the set) and certainly wont be the last. Im sure they have a work around for you.

Give Don Ware a call at Anderson Plywood.

No one I know other than Allan Kensley know those tools better.

Thats saying quite a alot.

Don has used them professionally and still does (I think) has almost everything in stock icluding some parts that people commonly order/need.

I also order from Beaver tools @ festool on line .

They were recommended by Bob Marino who was the man as far as dealers go.

 I only ordered from Beaver once they were very helpful and I recieved very good service from them and got my order to me quick 3 days to Calif from Missouri. I wouldnt hestitate ordering from them again.

@Slowlearner you don't say where you are located. Different countries have a different scope of delivery or what's included.

In the USA you can check with www.festoolusa.com click products find your tool and there is generally a fairly accurate list of what's there under INCLUDES

Here's the RO 90
