Well just finished this laminate job.  The mfk 700 worked very well and easy to use.

After removing the old tops, I cut up 3/4" cabinet ply to size using both of my mft 3 tables. to suppport the ply while I ripped it to size using my ts55 and rails (I forget my 106" rail at home so I just used the smaller one and moved it.  I also used the domonio to connect the 2 pieces together and it worked great.

then I applied the side strips and used the router to trim the top and bottom edge of those pieces.  using the laminate bit.

Then I laminated the top pieces and ran the mfk700 around the edges and it worked very well and easy.  I did not attach the vac hose due to my first time using the bit I did not want the hose to catch on anything and mess it up.  If I had my overhead hose holder then that would be different.

and it really made a big mess with all the laminate trim off all over the place!  but I had tarps down and it was a rental house and I had my vac to clean it up.  That was safer and easier then worring about the hose catching and buying more laminate.

I could not take any pictures of me actually using it to laminate since I was working alone that day.

so overall, I was very pleased with the results and would recommend using this tool for this type of job...
