When used with the Festool OF 1400 Router, the Parallel Edge Guide allows you to rout up against, or perfectly parallel to the material edge, delivering precise dados, flutes, grooves, ploughs, rabbets and profiles. Fine-adjustment control allows you to dial in the distance from the material edge in increments of 1/10mm for ultra-precise routing. Dust extraction hood enables ultra-efficient dust extraction, saving valuable cleanup time. The Edge Guide is constructed from durable cast aluminum, and includes fiber-reinforced plastic thumbscrews for easy adjustment and a long service life. Attaches quickly and easily using integrated thumbscrews and two steel guide rods (rods should be included with your Festool OF 1400 EQ Router).

The edge guide is of a piece with the rest of the Festool System. Very accurate manufacturing; tight settings, accurate fine adjustment, adaptable, good dust control. The edge guide allows a reasonably good view of the cutter. Although the piece is very light, it is also stout. The quality of the castings and machine work is first rate. As it should, the edge guide provides an obvious feel of quality, and controls that provide good control of the machine. All parts are cast or moulded, and everything fits together perfectly, including the sometimes-annoying connecting rods. Festool tools are expensive, but appear to be a good value. If you depend on tools you can't tolerate lost time, trips to the store or telephone to get needed parts or to solve problems. If you're going to work, use good tools Recommended.
