Router One is a brand new end-user training class, based partially upon the former "Festool Advance Router" curriculum, which is no longer offered.
In this two-day hands-on workshop we will cover the full Festool router lineup, including the MFK 700, OF 1010, OF 1400, OF 2200, CMS router table, as well as the MFT/3 and FS Guide rails, with regards to how they integrate with Festool Routers.
Router One was designed for woodworkers of all levels, even if they've never touched a router before.
Topics covered in Router One are tailored to each class, but typically include: Fundamental router safety and operation, applicable to any Router; Integration of Festool Routers with FS guide Rails; Festool cross-platform system integration; Perimeter and field shaping with profiling bits; Mortising with routers; CMS set up, and joinery applications, and More!
Participants will leave with an improved understanding of safe, efficient, routing techniques as they apply to new construction; remodeling, cabinet work, and furniture construction. Real-world, application-based exercises will enhance the participant's understanding of how to efficiently employ the Festool Router System in the shop and on the job site.
Safety glasses and earplugs will be required during all tool use. In addition, participants will be asked to sign a standard liability waiver at the outset of class. If this presents a problem, please let us know beforehand, since this will impact our ability to allow you to work with the tools.
