MFT/3 Box
« on: May 14, 2018, 09:28 AM »
I ordered a brand new MFT/3 online and it was just delivered a few minutes ago.  Only problem is that the box only says MFT and shows a a picture of a plain MFT.

This may sound like a dumb question, but does anyone know if the MFT/3 box is actually labeled as MFT/3?

I didn't want to mess with opening the box if I in fact did receive the wrong product.  I also would have called the dealer directly, but they don't open for another 30 minutes so I was hoping to get some more information in the meantime.  People can usually get a very fast response on the FOG.

Did you get the basic or the set package. If you bought the set package the picture should also show the guide rail and stops etc..

Scroll down to the second picture and click the Box

I would BUT... is it the right item?  It sure looks like the basic table, which isn't what I ordered.

That's what my box looked like.  The rail and accessories are in two plain/unmarked boxes inside.

Oh ok that's good to know.  I guess I should have just done what a sane person would have done from the beginning -  just open the box LOL.

I always like to make things extra complicated for no reason!

I'm dumb - I just opened the box and I see the box containing the guide rail and the fence.

I should have just done that to begin with (but that would have been too easy)!  I guess Festool saves money by only needing to create 1 box for both the MFT basic and the set version.

Thanks everyone for the responses!

This box used for all MFT tables: MFT-3 basic, MFT-3 set, and MFT-Conturo. It requires only different labels.
Do you have and keep different versions of tables in the boxes?

I didn't notice a label on the box indicating what specific model it was.  Granted, I didn't look that much at the box.  I just saw "MFT" and shimmied the box inside the garage next to my car.

I don't keep the cardboard boxes for any product that I buy.  This is my first MFT.  I'm trying to think if I've ever bought any other product that had a generic box that only had s sticker or label to denote the specific model - I can't think of any examples off the top of my head.
