How to get the most from your Festool OF1010 Router, (Part Two)

Hi All,

Sorry its taken a couple of weeks for me to get part two of the  Festool OF 1010 series posted, but I  was floored with a dose of Flu.

In Part two we’ll further explore this great little router , showing how to insert a cutter and  focusing on the depth turrets which, from experience, seem to give people a lot of trouble.

Don’t be put off reading this article if you don’t own a Festool router as virtually every plunge router on the market will have a similar depth turret adjustment system, and the information in the article can easily be transposed between brands.

Please click here, Of 1010 Part 2  to read the full article.

In Part three we’ll  look at the accessories which can be used with the OF1010, including the Guide rail sets, accessory bases and copy rings

I hope you enjoy the article and as always, your comments and feedback are appreciated.

Articles in the pipeline include, how to make templates and use copy rings, the Festool 1400 and 2200, the Bosch GMR trimmer and a review of the new Dremel Saw-Max if I can get my hands on one.

If you have any questions on any of the information in this article, or if you’ve got any router or woodwork questions you can contact me via email or post a comment and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Have fun and be safe

Cheers for now….

How to get the most from your Festool OF1010 Router

The Festool OF 1010 Part 1

 

 

Hi Guys

Well, here’s the first part of the series of router articles that I’ll be uploading over the next few weeks.

The articles will be quite comprehensive, so on machines where there are lots of features to cover I’ll break them up into two parts. Part 1 of the OF1010  covers the basics and details all of the important parts up to the depth stop mechanism.

Part 2 which should be up next week will cover using the depth turret, copy rings, changing bases and accessories. I’ll also be including practical exercises which will give you an idea of how to create some common joints with the  OF1010.

I’m working on a series of articles which will cover template routing and how to make things such as hinge jigs and other useful jigs. Before these articles are uploaded I’ll be covering the features, functions and ideal applications of a number of popular routers and trimmers on the market. Please take the time to read these as they’ll all help to give you a greater understanding of how your machine works. Before you can begin to get the most from your Router you need a thorough understanding of all its features and functions.

Drop me a line if you have any questions about specific machines and as usual, your questions and comments are always appreciated.
