Festool knobs
« on: May 23, 2013, 03:52 PM »
I've got quite a few "experiments" on the go at the moment revolving around Festool tools, and as much for me to have a record as to share information that takes time to pull together, I'll be documenting a few things as I go along. Today it's Festool knobs!  [blink]

When it comes to Festool knobs that would be useful for attachments and jigs, there are really only three sizes that come into play. Let's call them small knob, large knob, and grip.


They come in various sizes and shapes, mostly with M6 and M8 screw threads.

Should you want to acquire some for your projects, the following is a list I have compiled of the various options (including current UK GBP pricing).

Small knob

M6 x 10mm (436195) £2.56
M6 x 12mm (438320) £1.72
M6 x 16mm (444633) £1.38
M6 x 23mm (486243) £1.99
M6 x 28mm (436420) £1.99

Large knob

M6 Female (440713) £1.98
M6 x 7mm (481984) £2.18
M6 x 12mm (482098) £2.18
M6 x 16mm (482110) £1.99
M6 x 22.5mm (482934) £ 1.92
M6 x 29mm (486202) £1.85
M6 x 43mm (453067) £2.23
M6 x 70mm (485665) £2.95
M6 x 95mm (485666) £3.12
M6 x 111mm (485667) £3.26

Extra Large knob (not pictured as I don't have one!)

M8 x 21mm (484280) £3.73


M6 x 35mm (494495) £5.14
M6 x 50mm (492412) £5.14

M8 Female (487555) £4.04
M8 x 12mm (487554) £3.97

You should be able to order all of the above parts via Festool or your local dealer.

Whilst I freely admit they're not the cheapest knobs and grips available, they do all have the Festool logo on them...  [wink]

Nicely done.
You could probably get several knobs for price of Festool one, but they wouldn't be Festool ones.

With the Large knob you can pop it open and swap to the length of M6 bolt you need.

or add a nut depending what you need the knob for. I have done both as needed.
