Smart innovations on MFT
« on: July 17, 2019, 12:34 PM »
There's always a fair amount of discussion around maximizing MFTs. I stumbled across this version the other day and there's a lot of nuggets in its design and execution. The design of the hinged guide rail bracket looks to really improve functionality in stability and repeatability. In the video it looks like there's a hold down clamp that attaches to the outboard cross cut fence (maximizes the table width), I've never seen an MFT have a clamp like that before, really cool. I like the overall size, shape, and rigidity; you don't see these dimensions often for portable units, but it seems to make the most sense to me. I cook for a living, and have never installed a door, but the little support brackets for the t-tracks on the legs look really handy for people who do. Anyways, pretty smart/inspiring stuff going on with this MFT.

That does look quite useful. Its overall size is the same as the work tables (on sawhorses) we use onsite, a size I've found to be the best balancing footprint vs. functionality (we do use mainly 4x8 tables in our shop).

I wonder what price point they're shooting for?

Has anyone signed on to the 100 needed to start production and what is the cost?
There are no mistakes....just new designs.

Rob is an amazing and stand up guy.  I’ve been beta-testing the Dashboard and it’s accessories for over two years both in the field and in my shop.  I can tell you it has no equal and I can’t imagine working without it.  If you have questions about his product I recommend you contact him via his website.  If you would like to talk to someone who has been using the Dashboard every day for years.  You are more than welcome to contact me through my Instagram @acomitaws or email        Also...  I don’t get kickbacks, I’m not on payroll, I have not been compensated in any way.  Thisn’t an advertisement or marketing loophole.  I paid for my tables.  Rob is my friend and I love what he made.  That is all.

I tried a few times to send a note of interest in being an early adopter, but the link (send) button doesn't seem to be working.

If anyone can reach out to Rob and let him know to check out the link, we'd both probably appreciate it.

It is a very interesting work table. If the price is not too high it could be detrimental to sales of the Festool MFT. Therefore, Rob is not permitted to promote his table in this Festool owned forum.

This thread is walking a fine line and posting Rob’s email address might cause the thread to be deleted. Send me a PM if you want his address.

I signed up on the website and got an emailed response.  You might check your spam filter. Sounds like they might be a ways out from production.

I was fortunate to be local and picked up one of these recently. Just got to really use it for the first time this week. I can't compare to the MFT, but so far it has been a huge upgrade for me and a VERY well thought out product!!! I am a very happy camper and would highly recommend both the bench and working with Rob.
