Help identifying parts. MFT?
« on: September 09, 2018, 07:59 AM »
A couple of wheels that came with a second hand MFT table. They seem to sit really nicely on top of the extrusion but I’m not sure if they belong to it or have a use. Any ideas?

The MFT never has had a Festool wheel assembly as far as I know.  Unfortunately I can't open your images.  That being said there have been some different MFT's out in the wild on your side of the ocean that were Festool demo units used by sales reps that were modified in some ways.  Who knows, you might have gotten a rare one - or just one that someone like us altered.

If you PM me I'll give you my email address and you can then attach the images.

Sorry Peter. Wheels is a bit misleading. More like glorified washers.284892-0284894-1

My bet is those are part of the sliding table from the CMS router or table saw modules.

Unless Festool changed/updated them, the sheaves on my CMS sliding table are a plastic.

Yes I thought they might be from the CMS sliding table but mine too, are plastic. The profile is also different.

I have an older Basic table with the slider on it, and mine are metal with bearings. They do not look like those pictured above.
