Could the 466354 parts of the MFS be used to make the woodpecker version of a circle jig?

My guess is yes, however it's tough to be definitive without having a Woodpeckers rail to examine. I'd give it a definite yes if the question is "Can the 466354 be modified to fit the Woodpecker rail".

Huh. I'll have to check it out when I get home. I know I didn't see it in the box when I did the initial inventory. I don't remember seeing it attached to the router either, but then again I didn't look real hard.

Mine is not the brand new model. It is an iteration or two older as I picked it up on the Festool Recondition site. I'm guessing a 2015 model since it came in a 90 years systainer.

Thanks for the replies.

The owners manual doesn't state it's an accessory or "sometimes included in delivery scope" and it's not sold as an accessory along with the copy rings, fence, chip catcher , ect.....

That means it should come with the router.

sometimes machines get a little bumped in transit but all those particles look like a different story.

that's more than a "little bumping".    [scared]  And the insert would be "bumped" too.

And where is the sole protector that is installed at the factory ?

And how did those scratches get on the blade mount if it is new ?

And where did all those xtra owners manuals come from ?   We've seen FT USA lackadaisical approach to the ReCon sale and their overlooking obvious faults before shipping those. But I haven't seen or heard that folks in Wendlingen make mistakes like sending out 4 manuals of different types on brand new tools.

This was just a lazy shortsighted approach by this dealer that's going to end up costing them shipping charges both ways.

The scope of delivery has changed on the 1400 over the years.  I can't find a reference on whether or not it is currently included.  But several times here I have read about it hiding in the systainer quite effectively.

If you don't have one, the part number is different than the one for the 1010.

Here is the portion of the ekat for the 1400.  You will need parts 58 and 59.

Given the various states of condition people have received their recon tools...what would be an acceptable state of the top on a MFT??

I'm not sure I'm remembering this correctly but I believe past recon sales the MFT's got a new top.

Update.....

Eventually got round to trying the grinder and flap disc plan, that didn't work so well.
Requires a very, very gentle "kiss" with the grinder and unfortunately mine isn't variable speed.

I was having a bad morning at work and figured its almost Xmas, why not.
I caved in and bought the RO 150, I'm feeling better already.

If I don't come right now, then I'm the weak link  [bite tongue]
Now I just have to explain this one to my wife  [scratch chin]
