Title: Modular CMS-OF Router Insert & Fence
Post by: CliveS on September 18, 2017, 10:36 AM
Help please - I wanted to know if anyone has any experience of mounting the CMS Router and Fence in their own work bench. I don't need it to be mobile but would like a bigger bench but equally would like to use the Festool insert. Many thanks for any guidance

What sort of work do you need to do to require it in a big bench?
I have used it in the CMS with the sliding table locked in the middle with Kapex extension wings to support long and wide boards to great effect.
This shows one such use here (https://youtu.be/5yxcCRwuxOA) of the extentions
at around the 6minute mark

Rob I have limited space in the workshop so wanted to combine the table with working space and staorage rather than having a separate work station. I have no doubt it does work with the std Festool table I just wanted to investigate options. Thanks
