Hi Andy,

Hopefully you'll see this. I was on the Festool stand on Sunday checking out the guide rail plunge saws and work table, and as I was running late with a long journey home I missed their new router. Silly really as I have thought for ages that the old 2000 was getting a bit long in the tooth and I never thought to ask the guys if there was anything new in the pipeline.

Quite by chance I ran into the festool guy in R&R in Cirencester on Friday and we got chatting and he mentioned they had a new router coming out in March/April.

I then discovered you talking about it from the show in another thread on the website. Did you get hands on with it? What did you  think? will there be a review in an up coming magazine?

Thanks

Jason

Hi Jason, Yep, had a brief tour of the router and it's pretty impressive (price isn't, about 600!!!) Anyway, the plunge is very neat, now a simple twist operation on the handle, not like the old Elu96, this is on top of the grip, rather like a fine height adjuster. Quick release bases are clever as well for templating, guide rails etc. I've definitely got my name down for a loan sample for a test as soon as they are out! Cheers, Andy

Hi Andy,

Thanks for that. Thought it would be pricey.

Jason.

Thanks
