Armor Tool Workbench
« on: October 03, 2017, 09:42 PM »
Curious is anyone has any experience with the Armor Tool butcher block dog table. I have an MFT-3 and was looking for something to pair it up with to use as a combination outfeed/assembly/MFT-3 extension table. I like the idea of a hard maple top for durability during project assembly and the potential to use my MFT accessories in the dog holes. I also like the idea that it's already on casters and can be built out to accept Systainer storage underneath. I also can't find any details on its height to see if it could be level with the MFT-3.

Any thoughts?

Better find out the diameter of the dog holes. Even if they are 20mm the Festool clamps won't pass through a hole deeper than about an inch.

You can find these on Amazon.  Fully assembled height range of 36.5" to 41.5". The legs seem to be adjustable in small increments.
3/4" holes spaced 3" in 1.5" thick top.

For that price I thought, it better come with the clamps included. And then in the very fine print is says, clamps sold separately. Doesn't seem like good value to me.

The legs and metal parts look identical to the Kreg components to make tables, they are probably cheaper and available on Amazon.

The holes and top could  easily be made and that would give you the versatility of making it any size and height.

I'd probably make my own, so that it is exactly what you want.
