CMS Compact Module Tool Workshop

Turns handheld tools into precise bench-mounted systems

The Compact Module System was developed to prevent your workshop from becoming cluttered with machines. Individual work modules are easy to change over, and convert your handheld plunge saw, jigsaw, router or belt sander into a table machine, all controlled by one main safety switch. The area underneath the table serves as a perfect area for your dust extractor, and numerous fences and attachments ensure repetitive cuts are turned out quickly and precisely. Also compatible with Festool's Multifunction table, the surface area can be dramatically increased to suit large work pieces. An optional module tower provides the perfect stacking storage for modules not in use, and can also store Festool Systainer's and Dust Extractors.

Main Benefits:

  • Different modules for every application.
  • Quick module changes.
  • Easily extendable for larger work surface.
  • Foldable legs for two working heights.
  • Non-marking grey rubber feet.
  • Main central on/off switch.
  • Light 10.8kg.

Faster: Fast, precise repetitive cuts with the mitre guide which can be rotated 180° and used on either side.


Easier: Easy tool module change overs in seconds.


Better: A completely flexible unit with additional fences and tables easily attached to suit any size workpiece.
