MFK 700 Modular Trim Router Set - 574368

Precision and flexibility in a trim router

With its modular design and tool-less base changes, the MFK 700 can easily transform from a vertical to a horizontal position with a few simple steps. Trim laminate and edge band or rout grooves for inlays easily with the light weight and maneuverable MFK 700. Packed with features, this trim router saves you money by allowing you to use bearing-less bits when used with the attachable base feeler bearing. 1/256" (1/10 mm) fine depth adjustments and exceptional dust extraction make this an ideal router for all of your light routing tasks.

Due to the nature of the horizontal base design, there is a limit to the bit size for use in this configuration.  Do not use a bit with a cutting length greater than 5/8" (16 mm) and a shank length of 1-13/16" (46 mm).  For greatest range of adjustment a 3/4" (19 mm) bit diameter is recommended.

Recommended Festool bits - 491 666 and 491 670 for trimming of edge banding with horizontal base.

  • Powerful 720 watt (6.0 amp) motor can easily tackle most trimming, profiling and routing applications with variable speed and detachable cord.
  • Vertical and horizontal extra-wide bases provides ample support area for maximum control especially near edges or on narrow stock.
  • Micro-adjustable depth control to 1/256 inch (1/10 mm) with dual locking columns for precise routing control.
  • Threaded insert to accept template guides and phenolic resin baseplate to easily glide on a surface without marring the material to be routed.

Features & Benefits.

MMC Electronic & Variable Speed Control

MMC Electronic & Variable Speed Control

Multi-Material Control (MMC) Electronics ensures the motor of the MFK 700 provides a constant spindle speed under load. The motor is also protected by the smooth start-up and temperature monitoring functions. Variable Speed Control allows you to control the speed of the spindle based on material, bit type and application.

720 Watt Motor

720 Watt Motor

The MFK 700 Router is equipped with a powerful 720 Watt motor. That's just shy of one horsepower! With that much power, you can easily tackle most trimming, profiling and routing applications. The motor utilizes onboard thermal monitoring to protect against overload and soft start technology ensuring long service life.

One Wrench Collet

One Wrench Collet

The MFK 700 Router features a one-wrench collet. A button locks the spindle in place allowing the collet to be loosened and tightened quickly with a single tool. No more busted knuckles! The MFK 700 includes a 1/4" collet. Optional 8mm collet also available.

Tool-Less Base System

Tool-Less Base System

Quickly and easily change between the horizontal and vertical bases supplied with the MFK 700. All components of the MFK 700 router set can be attached and removed without tools. Simply give the locking knob three turns to loosen or tighten the locking mechanism for the bases. Increase productivity with the modular design of the MFK 700 base system. One router motor, multiple routing applications.

Super Fine Micro-Adjustment

Super Fine Micro-Adjustment

Most routing applications require very strict tolerances. The MFK 700 utilizes a super fine micro-adjustment knob allowing fine tuning of the cut depth with an accuracy of 1/10 of a millimeter! The super fine micro-adjustment knob is clearly labeled to show which direction the bit will move. Dual locking knobs prevent movement once the depth has been set.

Control

Control

Being able to confidently control the MFK 700 is made possible by several unique features. The integrated guide handle on the vertical and horizontal bases provide comfort and control while routing. The guide handle also acts as one of two mechanisms for locking the micro-adjustable depth of cut.

Quad Center Line Reference Marks

Quad Center Line Reference Marks

As with all Festool routers, the MFK 700 has a center line indention on each side of the vertical base. This visual reference point allows you to align the center of the bit with the cut line. No more guessing where the center of the bit falls on your workpiece. Used in conjunction with the parallel edge guide, easily position the router.

Wide Bases

Wide Bases

Both the horizontal and vertical bases for the MFK 700 offer a large, stable bearing surface. In conjunction with the guide handle, these features improve your ability to control and guide the router.

Dust Extraction Port
