The "MFT Aligned" is an upgrade kit for owners of the Festool MFT/3 multifunction table. This kit includes components to upgrade both the front and back guide rail supports. It re-uses some components from Festool's original hinge bracket and requires minor assembly. For step-by-step details, refer to our detailed Assembly Guide (PDF) or watch this Assembly Video.

Restore Confidence in the Accuracy & Repeatability of Your MFT/3

MFT Aligned introduction video
Watch this video for an introduction of the MFT Aligned Upgrade Kit for your Festool MFT/3 multifunction table.

In the workshop or on the jobsite, it's tough to beat Festool's MFT/3 multifunction table for clamping, sanding, plunge cutting, routing, and many other common woodworking tasks. We're big fans of the MFT/3, but we've also heard a common complaint from the TSO user community: the guide rail supports on the MFT/3 are prone to deflection and, once perfectly squared, can easily move out of square—especially when adjusting vertically to accommodate different workpiece material thicknesses. The result is frequent and often tedious re-squaring operations or, worse yet, accuracy issues which don't become apparent until glue-up or final assembly.

To achieve accurate and repeatable results on the MFT/3, it's critical to minimize any movement in the bracket assemblies attaching the guide rail support to the table's front and back extrusions, as well as restrict movement of the guide rail to just the vertical axis. With the plastic components utilized in the original MFT/3 design, this is easier said than done.

The MFT Aligned upgrade kit solves this common problem by replacing Festool's stock plastic mounting brackets located on both the front and back guide rail supports with precision CNC-machined brackets made from 6061-T6 aluminum. These new brackets are much more rigid and—because we're able to hold much tighter tolerances in aluminum—they also provide a more precise and uniform fit against Festool's sliding metal bracket used for height adjustment. For additional support and more even clamping pressure, we also added a second comfort grip knob and a series of beveled protrusions effectively wedging the bracket to the table's side extrusion. The result is a much stronger guide rail support less prone to deflection and less likely to move out of square during normal operation.

Our heavier-duty aluminum brackets replace the MFT/3's standard-issue plastic components.

Finally, this upgrade kit includes a precision aluminum Guide Rail Insert. This insert slides into the guide rail's bottom t-track, helping to locate and guide the "finger" feature of the front bracket into the underside of the guide rail. In addition to preventing wear, this insert also helps limit movement of the guide rail.

Breathe new life into your MFT/3 with the MFT Aligned Guide Rail Support Upgrade Kit—designed and manufactured with pride in Minnesota.

To keep costs down and eliminate waste, the MFT Aligned upgrade kit re-uses some components from Festool's original hinge bracket. As such, it requires minor assembly once you receive it.

    Excellent quality

    Everything I've purchased from TSO has always been of the highest quality. The MFT guide rail upgrade kit has blown my mind! This thing has transformed my MFT into a truly precision tool. The amount of play I use to have in the old FT system brackets has now been removed 100%. I wish I had spent the money and bought this sooner don't delay if you have invested in the FT system this upgrade will transform your MFT and take it to the next level!

    MFT guide rail upgrade kit

    Posted by Dennis Reinbold on 21st Dec 2023

    This is definitely an improvement to the original. I was disappointed to reuse the flimsy Festool plates and rail tab. I still don’t have confidence that it’s going to consistently seat properly at 90 degrees.

    MFT Aligned Guide Rail Support Upgrade Kit

    This is the second set of these that I've bought. I will add a second MFT table to my bench and want to put a rail long-wise, hence the second set. I found the MFT original hardware to be pretty weak and easily knocked out of alignment. This kit solves 95% of the problem. I'm really surprised Festool designed the original so weak but the need was seen and filled.

    Best Upgrade for my MFT 3

    Posted by Roy Richardson on 24th Oct 2023

    M MFT3 was a nightmare three years in and not one square cut. But that all changed when I finally bought and installed this MFT Upgrade kit from TSO. I hate spending money on something that should have been much better from the jump. Now after making my parallel cuts I can crosscut all day long, fold up the table and start again the next day and no problems at all, This is a great improvement to my woodworking hobby. WHY DID i WAIT SO LONG?
