Published on :Wednesday, August 11, 2021

Festool is launching the new OF 1010 R router in August 2021. It is THE router for fine routing work – extremely versatile, precise and easy to handle, whether guided freely or on the guide rail. Thanks to its double column clamping, compact size and low weight, it can be guided along edges, lines or curves with high precision. It particularly impress with its wide variety of possible applications, including routing profiles, grooves, rebates and dovetail joints.

The most important factor for routing is precision

The most important thing when routing is precision and this is precisely what the new router delivers. It can be guided torsion-free with the double-sided column clamp and offers a clear view of the router. To achieve this, the two guide columns of the router table are clamped on both sides. The result is torsionally rigid routing with excellent results. This makes the need for inconvenient, time-consuming rework a thing of the past. In addition, precise routing is enabled by the OF 1010 R’s clearly visible work area, which offers a clear view of the router.

Perfectly simple: Fine adjustments and cutter changes

Another factor that plays a crucial role in the router’s precision is its easy-to-use depth adjuster. It takes just a few seconds and minimal effort to adjust the routing depth of the OF 1010 R accurate to a tenth of a millimetre using the dial. Festool is known for its comprehensive range of routers and has the optimal router for every application. Moreover, the work area around the collet has been designed to be open, making it easily accessible so that cutters can be changed quickly and safely in record time.

Ergonomic, lightweight design that improves health and safety at work

When developing the new router, we not only placed precision, but also ergonomic routing and healthy and safety at the centre of our focus. Its compact design, low weight and ergonomic handle mean that the new router rests particularly snugly in your hand and make guiding the machine safe and comfortable. In conjunction with a mobile dust extractor, the unique chip deflector directly on the cutter ensures a clean and healthy working environment when edge routing. Moreover, the bayonet fitting enables the new router to be easily and safely connected to the D 27 and D 36 suction hoses.

A versatile system

Unconditional quality is uncompromising. This is why Festool also offers a coordinated, versatile and efficient system for routing – with machines, cutters and accessories from a single source. Its wide variety of system accessories – such as cutters, routing templates, the LR 32 holes series system, guide rails and the VS 600 jointing system – means that its possible applications are virtually unlimited. The new OF 1010 R router will be available from specialist retailers from August.
